1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Half-liter bottle, $2 clearance @ Binny’s. Pours pilsener colored, slightly hazy. Kicks up some bubbles in my shaker glass, but no foam. Smell has some malts, but some fusels, too. Taste is pretty much barley soda with alcohol added. I can drink it, but there’s no character at all. Even having "Morgen" by Ivo Rovic come upon iTunes right now doesn’t help this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl shared by Calisky, by way of jaghana, merci. Pours like a Helles. Gentle nose of apple juice gespritzt, some barley. Taste is a diluted rendition of same, too light and fluffy for a Märzen but ideal as a fruity Helles for washing down delicious Comté-laden pizza.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle @ the 11th Shrewsbury Bottle share, Feb 15. One of a few beers after the last official beer so my memory is a bit hazy. Seemed like a nice enough alt-style beer, lacking in bite and flavour but serves the purpose of keeping the beer flowing.

330ml bottle from Hipercor, Oviedo.@home 21-03-2014.
In short: a dull lager.
Pours pale gold, clear, with white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Malty, grassy and some cooked vegetables aromas. Light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is malty, some diacetils, grassy. Mild bitter. Nothing remarkable.
