2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden beer with big pearling to crealy, just off-white head leaving shards of lace. Chalky nose, somehow watery smell. Short, but harsh-metallic bitterness. After that, soft grains/adjuncts-like sweetness. Not too sweet. Watery, but refreshing, mineral water quality. Unfortunately, aftertaste returns to sugary sweetness. I hope the mineral water didn’t well up near Chernobil...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16.9 oz bottle purchased at Spirits RB. Pours a clear gold with a suprisingly good looking large pillowy white head. Aroma of corn, cereal and an odd plasticy odor. Mostly flat watery body with only a tiny hint of carbonation. Flavor of grains and a slight bit of bitterness on the finish. Classic import pale lager about as exciting as standing on line at DMV.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours the standard pale clear yellow. Small white head. Aroma of grass and some light fruity and floral hints. Taste is malty with mild reminders of the aroma. Light and smooth feel with biting carbonation and a bit of a sticky sweet hopped finish. Not too average of a lager but not great. Worth a try.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas of light grassy hops, and canned sweet corn. Gentle pale malt flavors, along with some mild lemon and floral hints. Very light bitterness, but there’s a bit of chemical astringency there too. Watery and light bodied, but with very soft carbonation. Not as bad as expected, but not that great either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazed straw gold with almost no head. Nose is grainy. Flavor is pretty full with character forthe style as it has a good bit of grain influence and a slight cereal presence as well. Overall it has a fuller body than the norm. Feel is standard. Low carbonation. Definitely drinkable. Nothing to write home about, but not complete garbage I say.
