2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Light golden, very small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty – grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light metal and faint hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light cardboard and metal with faint hoppyness. "Premium lager" - really nothing special. Tastes cheap.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Slightly doughy and delicately grainy pale malty aroma with a shy flowery hoppy background. Moderately sweet and discreetly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with an almost crisp mouthfeel. Slightly doughy malt-character with a mildly herbal and subtle floral hoppy touch; sweet-bitter pale malty and slightly herbal finish. Better than expected; clean, easy-going but rather boring. 02.VI.14

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle BB 04/2013. Drinkable, quite rough and subcomplex lager with mild lemonade aromas and sweet almond malts. Palate is indeed rather metallic than watery. Basic ingredients should allow for a better beer.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Beside being something special this one is all metallic. Metallic in the nose, metallic in the taste, metallic in the aftertaste. Could have been an average pilsner without that metallic aroma. Yes, it is still drinkable but a higher score would have been so easy to reach.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden colour with low steady head and medium to thin body. Nose of hops. Taste of strong hops, ripe grains, grass, straw and light chestnuts. Easy and nice to drink but the finish is just too metallic and awful.
Cunningham (4342) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 25, 2013
1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: Golden color with a thin white layer on top.
Aroma: Mild malty and light fruity.
Palate: Medium light body. Moderate sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Slightly caramel malty and mild hoppy.
Overall impression: It was not better than expected. Easy drinkable, but not very fresh. Anyway I would still like to go to Lichtenstein and try their beer there.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with Visionthing. Enjoyed a lovely afternoon by The River in Oslo, together with Mr Visionthing and Mr Arve_Christian.
