1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with average-sized white head and a steady stream of bubbles. Pretty rank aroma of creamed corn and some skunky grains. Flavour is almost passable with sweet, slightly skunked grains, light grassiness and only a hint of adjunct. A little metallic and watery. Just what the LCBO needed - another crummy European pale lager.

Klar gyllengul i fargen med et medium tykt hvitt skumlag. Lukter malt og litt gress. Medium kullsyre, litt tam i smaken, lite ettersmak.

Standard lager, more hearty and skunkier than a Heineken, a decent ABV for a pale lager.

Review from notes on 07/21/10
50cl for $4 @ Huck’s in Spokane, WA
Poured from bottle to SN pint.
A: Pours a thin, white head which dissipates rapidly and is rejuvinated reciprocally with a constant stream of bubbles. Exellent clarity.
S: Sweet grain with a hint of skunking, rainier cherries in there too.
T: Grain, earth, corn. Pretty standard pils profile. nothing notable here. Finish dissipates with two breathes.
M: Light body. Almost champagne style carbonation (a little too bubbly for a lager pils).
D: Okay beer, would rather have a zatec in the same category of beer.
Serving type: bottle

330ml can - BB201308, drunk 201312 - thanks Mirjukka!
Sweet pale macro aroma. Pale gold, pale head. Watery palate, thin and fizzy.Tastes a bit old, alas, which is my fault, some tomato, some apple. But you can tell that deep down, there wasn’t much flavour to change. Some dry hops still remain, but you know they were the cheapest extract Heineken could get their hands on. A pile of macro meh.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle. Pours a clear straw hue with a thick head. Aroma of slunk and little sweetness. Taste of Skunk up front and then grassy, cracker like and a little sweetness on the finish. Ok but not great.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
BB 04/2014. Poured a crystal clear pale golden colour with a big, big (4+ fingers) head that held for quite a while before diminishing to a thin line of bubbles. Laced poorly with a few rings. Carbonation a bit low and with large bubbles. Aroma of malt sweetness and grain, neither of them strong; also a bit musty/earthy. Taste of malt sweetness and grain, again neither of these strong; no real bitterness. Light body. An acidic and metallic after-taste is not appealing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From 500 ml can. Pours a clear amber-gold with a sudsy white head that dissipates almost completely. Aromas are very light with some cut grass, noble hop and a little grain. Taste is also very light with a aqueous body carrying light hop flavours but also a distinct honey note. Clean finish, as you’d expect. OK for what it is.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 0,50L. Have this one during my summer holdays in Croatia. Clear golden colour with average big frothy white head. Green bottle skunky aroma dominate, otherwise there are corn, grass and citruses.Light acidic aroma with a lot of carbonation turns into light bitter aftertaste. Light to medium body, watery texture. Another industrial lager in a row.
