2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rating #2000, new country tick. Plastic green bottle, 1 Liter. ABV 4.2% on the beer’s label, 4.7% on the importer’s sticker. Poured into a big Guinness glass.
Pours a very clear beer, pale orange golden in colour, with big bubbles hanging on the glass’s walls. A thin line of white foam is the most I got even after a hard pour, low retention of course and non existent lacing.
Aroma is malty as expected, very sweet, sugars, a certain alcoholic drink that I can’t put my finger on it, probably rum though. Notes of alcohol, although is alcohol level is stated to be relatively low.
Taste of malts, sugar, quite sweet. Some vegetables as it warms up. Grass.
Thin body, almost watery. Carbonation on the lower side too.
Nothing special, but I wouldn’t mind a very cold one on a hot day.

From a 500 ml bottle shared while Airstreaming across Canada. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Malty nose. Smooth and balanced, with flavors of caramel and biscuit. One of the better lagers I have had.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Unfortunately, it’s another lager from a concern brewery. With no interesting taste and aroma. It’s just a dull beer.

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours light golden colour with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is corn, but mostly skunky. Taste is cereal with light hop bittering. Thin on the palate. Not particularly memorable or enjoyable, but good enough not to pour down the drain. My bottle says 5.0 % alc/vol.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden color, topped with very generous white head. Slowly settles down to a small cover,
Basic malty and grainy aroma, although slightly skunky.
The balanced taste of the body finishes with a pleasant bitterness. A small metal feel in the aftertaste.
Very enjoyable and refreshing lager. Perfest for this hot weather.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Golden pour with a white head. Another very plain lager. Skunky on the nose, but not so much in the taste. Regular lager flavour. Less carbonated than most lagers, and a dryer finish. Really didn't like this one.
