2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale gold and very still. Aromas are sweet with some citrus notes not much going on really. Flavours are also forgettable weak lemon and some sherbert sweetness. All a bit thin.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I found a six pack of these that were nearly two years past their sell-by date. I don't remember buying them and can't really think of any reason why I would have. Whatever. This is a rather sweet and slightly malty mass-produced "pilsner". Not much carbonation (not surprising at this age) and not much vigour either. Not undrinkable, but I rather think other five will be used for cooking. Whether it would have been any more vivacious in its youth is a matter for conjecture and I doubt that I'll be testing that out. Bottled (25cl)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Lightly hoppy, bit sweet. Floral. Pleasant. Light golden clear with visible carbonation. White lacing head. Medium body, medium carb. Semi-sweet, bit of malt. Light hops, bit of alcohol, too. Some dry bitterness to finish and after. Sub-par lager.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A standard Euro-Pils with a little heavier body. Clean in the flavour with no surprises, and nothing wrong.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light pilsner appearance with a lightly hopped and slightly caramel aroma. The flavour is fresh and lightly hopped, making a very fresh drink indeed.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very ordinary beer from Artois. Light, thin, malty. No better than Stella, but with upmarket pretensions.
