2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale, bright, golden color, with a decent, froth head.
Smells of slightly fermented, sugared grains and corn.
Has a pleasant, lively carbonation with a nice, herbal finish, while maintaining its refreshing character.
Tastes of an aqueous, wet hay quality, together with a nice, noble hop bitterness, which becomes apparent especially during the finish, with slightly sweeter malts.
Super light, but well nuanced, refreshing light lager beer.

Didn’t really want to taste it, but did it after all. Nothing that impressed me. Glad I didn’t have to drink another one.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
630ml bottle [Thank you, Tim for the Thai import!]. Clear, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, snow-white head. Soggy, musty, wet strawy aroma, hints of grain and protein, a touch of cow dung. Taste is metallic and minimally soapy hoppy, strawy, subtle corn sweetness. Expectable.
