2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Basic lager-look, clear golden with slight sparkling and 2 finger white medium long head. Very grainy and bit sweet aroma has bit corn and unspecified fruits. Grainy flavor, mild feel in palate, light to medium body, soft and low carbonation, grainy finish. Very basic lager which fits this band well, not metallic but neither is the band, bit dull.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clear pale golden colour with a two-finger foamy head that collapsed quickly and laced OK for a while. Low carbonation. Aroma strongly of malt. Taste dominated by malty flavours and without any bitterness. Light body. Short sweet caramel finish. Certainly not like its name-sake.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Destroyer is one of those unique phenomenons of history, when ALL tracks in an album came out pretty damn good. As for the beer with the same name, it doesn’t go even close to the worse tune of Kiss (except most of Psyco Circus). I bought it just for the gimmick. The disaster starts with the aroma - if one can call it "aroma" - which reeks as something that I can just picture as Gene Simmons’s hangover halitosis. No more needed. From there, it doesn’t get any better...actually, there’s a song title in Destroyer that I can relate to this experience: Sweet Pain.

I kind of guessed what this would taste like before opening. Pour is clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is slightly wet cardboard like with a sweet almost apricot flavour. Sweet finish and very little bitterness. Not bad, but not gonna make me want to Rock & Roll all night either....

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
375ml bottle. Ok, I admit I bought it for gimmick value. Pale pour with fluffy white head. Wet cardboard/dog, metallic smell. Flavour is mild, bad wet cardboard, bad pale lager taste. It’s pretty awful, even by bad generic pale lager standards, with a nasty metallic aftertaste.
