1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale straw colour with a thin white head. The nose is grassy and grainy. Fairly light and thin with just a bit of fishy character. Dirty with a thin palate. Green apple, DMS and metallic flavour as well. God damn - this stuff is horrid; particularly as it warms up.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Light malt aroma, some apple, grass. Average nose, but a bit strange. Grain, malt, cardboard flavor, slightly sweet, low hops, some bread, corn. Ok but bland, light, cardboard is annoying. Worse than cheap Japanese beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can 50 cl. Pours a clear golden with a medium white head and a semi-pleasant aroma of sweet malts and hops. The the is also a bit on the sweet and malty side compared to the average pilsener. The finish is malty too, with some hops, but the sweet malty part lasts longer. Just average

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another must miss. Still, for grocery store beer, you get what you pay for. Transparent gold color, decent head, but with an unappealing, stale aroma and watery taste.

Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, decent sized white head. Smell is actually quite ok, malts and bitter. Taste malts, slightly sweet, lightly bitter. Decent carbonation, low to medium body.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale straw yellow, big white head. Malty nose with some cardboard thrown in. The taste starts sweet and malty, the middle malty, but underwhelming and the finish is mildly hoppy. Not a bad beer, but totally unremarkable. Not what I’d have in mind if someone said “Belgian beer”.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear pale gold/strawq color with an OK white head that diminishes but hangs in there. Aroma is corn and wet white bread. Taste is sweet pale malt along with grassiness and a bisquity character. Little in the way of hops, though. Very refreshing and well balanced, but nothing special. A European mass produced beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33l can. This pours a unfiltered light golden body with a thin white little lager-head. Aroma is light malty, traces of fruity-yeast and some thin watery hops. Light oily mouthfeeling, average carbonation and light bodied. Tastes mild malty, notes of something ripe-fruity and it ends medium bitter with a both semi-dry and quite watery aftertaste. Drinkable, indeed. Actually can remind me a tiny bit of a home brew or a micro brew.
