2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355mL thanks to argo0. Finally- a Tibet beer! The pour is a bright straw with heavy carbonation and a fizzy, temporary head. Nose is champagne like with cheap white wine. Much better than most pale lagers. Taste is metallic, grainy, light cereal but really not much there to like or dislike besides lemon Perrier. Big carbonation distracts. Not bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a clear pale golden with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet grainy malty nose with a touch of corn. Starts with a mild corn sweetness with some grassy bitterness before a drier slightly peppery finish. Very bland and not something I’d even want to drink on a hot day. At least it’s not infected.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin short lived white head, over a slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is biscuit, toast, corn, dust, light herbs.....taste is slightly sweet with light cereal, minimal bitterness, finishing with dust....mouth feel is light, carbonation high. A very unremarkable and totally uninteresting beer. BJCP 5/3/9/3/4

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Kind of horrible. Not clean at all for a light "crisp" kind of brew. Raunchy bitter aftertaste. One was enough.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a very thin yellow color with an floral aroma. Taste is slightly bitter and very metallic. This beer wasn’t as clean and crisp as its appearance would dictate. The aftertaste of this beer was almost as if the water was not filtered or slightly dirty. Overall, a beer I won’t drink again

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Bottle, thanks Skyview!] Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is grainy with light spice. The taste is odd, with celery, cucumber, and pepper. Not a fan of it. Thin, medium-long finish. Others seemed to like this beer more than I did, but I really did not care for it. Thanks anyways, Bob!
