2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
750 ml bottle purchased at BevMo in Vacaville, CA. Initial DMS, skunky nose, which dissipates quickly. Aroma has some booze, corny, grassy hop aromas. Smells a bit like a malt liquor. Mildly hazy yellow body with a small, quickly dissipating yellow-twinged white head. Metallic, lightly sweet, biscuity maltiness in the start and in the middle. Finishes a bit harsh and bitter with some ethanolic notes. Similar to a malt liquor, but this is more smooth and lacks the harsh fusels.

750. Beer is clear, light gold with a small, white, frothy, immediately diminishing head. Energetic carbo trails in the liquid.<P>
The aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate note of honeysuckle, light note of resin; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Light miscellaneous note of tin; swirl kicks up a light rotting corn/DMS note..<P>
The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, lightly acidic with a long, lightly bittersweet, dirty-tasting finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(as Krait Prestige) Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Not bad, as these things go, but difficult to enjoy all the same.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 750ml. Carbonated gold with fizzed head. Strong Eurolager with strong malt note, interesting without being that good, sweetish, cardboard. An awful lot of below average beer in one bottle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s a golden color with a huge white head. Aroma was pleasant, spicy and a bit floral. Taste was the same - mild spiciness and some good floral character. Definite grainy/malty backbone too. Very drinkable. This is very smooth, crisp and delicious beer. On tasting it you wouldn’t assume the doulbe fermentation, as it’s so smooth and crisp. It’s deceptive I tell ya. Be careful! Enjoyed at Tastes Wine Bar in the Highlands neighborhood in Denver.

Pale golden beer with a big whitish head. Mineral, slight grass aroma. Some earthiness, fruitiness, sweet malt flavor, but little depth. Very carbonated. A bit of spice lingers. Spritzy.
