1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5%. Crystal clear pale yellow colour, fizzy, moderate head. Moderate grainy aroma, hints of fruit and honey. Fairly clean grainy and fruity flavour, moderate hops. Alcohol is noticeable, but not unpleasant. A drinkable beer, but not remarkable.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours pale golden with a clingy, soapy white head. Weird bitter-sweet corn flavors with a skunky undertone of hops. Palate is light and fizzy, with a little more body than some pale lagers, but thats not saying much.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Just another skunky pale lager and proof that American macro brewers don’t have the market cornered on cheap, awful tasting beer. Might be OK for helpng prepare to outrun the bulls at Pamplona but that’s about it.

can. Golden color with a thin cream and weak aroma, some hops on it. Flavor is refreshing, nothing else. Loow bitterness.
Cerveja clara com pouca espuma e aroma fraco, notas de lúpulo, sabor refrescante e nada mais.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This beer rates "cinco estrellas" on a scale of "quince." Nothing special about it--light yellow color; very bland taste, aroma, etc., etc.; average Spanish beer.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is for what it is for: sozializing. It’s weak in nearly all ways. Light color, weak taste (maybe too much rice and corn?), neraly no body Good things to say about it: wonderful for summer afternoon and soccer matches. It comes down the troat really easy. It is definitely a "combat beer". That is what brings the points up, specially if you have several of them in Madrid sorrounded by friends, when it is really hot, and the barmans give you some tapas.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear bright gold/coppery body with compact head. More in the taste than the aroma, corn notes with a light but rough bitterness.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned. Poured a clear, almost fluorescent yellow with a tall, sticky cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet pale malts and some corn with light notes of hay present.. pleasant. The flavor found sweet grasses and bready notes at the base with cardboard and corn present.. some unnecessary sharp notes on the edges.. rather tacky finish. Light-bodied, dry and tacky throughout.. noticed more booze in here than I should have.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Golden body with a small white head. Aroma has soma malt and a bit fruity. Flavor is sweet malty with a little bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, just boring.

a golden yellow coloured ale, with a light laggery hop aroma and flavour, not bad in its style
