0,33 l can on a flight of edelweiss air from Zürich to Las Vegas for 5,00 €. But who cares on vacation? Clear golden in the glass, small white head. Flat taste, starts malty with some grain, low bitterness. Also low carbonation. Hop? Very easy to drink but nothing I would remember.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blind test of swiss lagers. Golden color, some foam. Rather nonexistent smell. The taste is very malty, sweet and a little tart. The aftertaste is the one of old beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can on a Swiss Air flight. Bow down to the Star Alliance Gold status, you fools! That’s what you get for doing clinical trials in all different sketchy ass companies, almost getting blown up in Istanbul, getting dirty in Delhi, and such. These are my spoils - no doubt every bit the Budweiser/Becks/Peroni/Kingfisher/Efes/Victoria Bitter/Tsingtao/Molsons/Tecate/Tiger/Asahi/etc of the country of Switzerland. I also just ate cheese soup and salami in a lounge. A lounge! I love living the high life, unless it’s the Miller High Life, in which case no thanks, get me something -bal aged at least, come on, are we animals here? Clear golden-yellow and fizzy with a one finger white head. Better retention and lacing than most in the style, so there’s that. The aroma is grain, white bread, touch of honey sweetness. The flavor is like a muted helles lager, medium sweet honey malt, only slight hop bitterness. Body is medium for the style, and carbonation is on the higher side as expected. Fine for what it is, but I wish it were something else, like a Cantillon, Hill Farmstead, or KBBS. Can planes not even get these beers? Just shows how good old fashioned service is going straight down the crapper!

Burk (på Swiss Airs flygning Göteborg - Zürich). Klar guldfärgad med ett stort vitt skum. Dofter av malt, hö och en gnutta citrus. Samma återkommer i smaken minus citrusen plus en ton av blomster. Finns betydligt sämre öl att bjuda sina passagerare på.

Flavour: Medium honey, grainy, Dry finish with light herb. Medium sweetness. Very low bitterness.
