2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle, bottled on 18 Jan 2012, the bottle says freshest taste within 180 days so I think Iím still good there. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing is average. Aroma is sweet malt and corn, and not much else. Taste is the same as the aroma. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it is light and goes down easy. For the style of beer it is, itís not too bad. Worth a try if you can pick up a single bottle somewhere.

Finest barley malt, premium hops, smooth finish, no bitter aftertaste. Tastes just like Budweiser.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was excited at first. But wait, itís an A-B product? Whether in whole or in part, itís not exactly what you want from a beer that you think is an import. Thatís one strike before the bottle is opened.
It pours with a thin head. Not much of an aroma, a little citrusy, a little spicy, but thatís about all. The color is a little lighter than I excpected, not quite straw, but not amber.
First sip is actually pretty good, but after a couple, it becomes slightly bitter, and not in a good way. It has a heavy mouthfeel, somewhat strange.
Interesting. The label and the name is what caught my eye. Worthy enough to try, but not to buy again,

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Moshimo, Brighton. Clear golden with a small white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite bitter. Malts, yeast and grain. A mediocre lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, grass and citrus. Tastes light sweet grainy with bready sourness, somehow feels like itís thinned by rice, while finish is mild bitter. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Just an average lager...

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Pilsner glass. When I smelled the mouth of the emptied bottle, all I could smell was skunk. Not sure if this bottle was on the store shelf too long or if every batch is this stinky. I swirled the glass a little and tried out my sniffer one more time. I could still smell skunk, but a hint of breadlines was there this time. This brew looked appealing--golden and fizzy. It took a few minutes for the white, one-inch head to recede to a thin white sheet of fine bubbles floating atop the brew. When the beer first hit my tongue, I was fooled into thinking Iíd have a refreshing, slightly sweet pale lager to enjoy. Brew had a slight bready sweetness on the tip of the tongue, but when it flowed through the rest of my mouth it tasted like I was licking the inside of a wet cardboard box. Mouthfeel was a tad richer than I expected after the initial fizziness of each sip dissipated. I would count the tiny bit of unexpected richness as a plus. Overall, I very much hated this brew and I would definitely never give it a second chance unless I knew the first one I drank was defective or old. I donít know how I can recommend a beer that smells like skunk and tastes like cardboard.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear straw colour with a huge white head. Aroma includes notes of apple, pear, and cereals. Tasting notes include apple, and watery malts. The palette is very thin and watery, the finish is similar to tap water.

From a can. Pours clear amber with a medium head, not much in the way of aroma or flavour for that matter.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light straw grain aroma. Faint whiff of spice I canít nail down. Crystal clear straw yellow body. Very little if any head to start or finish. Mild bitterness gives way to sweet corn finish. Finish is clean.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild floral and citrus aroma. Bitterness is a bit metallic and some more maltiness is needed to give balance to the bitterness. It is dry and light but could have done with more carbonation.
