3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. High withe creamy good looking and lasting head. Clear yellow body with a good deal of carbonation. Surprisingly distinct barley malt aroma with a bitte of apples (I guess). Barley malt flavor with a suitable amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation and a relatively long aftertaste. Better than expected.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden with a nice head. The aroma is neutral with weak notes of sour malt. The flavour has weak notes of malt (a bit sour), hops and light sweetness - plain boring IMO. 1760

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl green bottle from Binny’s. No date on this one, but there’s a pretty skunky pour. Pale lager color under a thick bubbly head. Skunkiness dwindles once it has room to breath. Taste is immediately corny, with a little note of biscuity or Pilsner malt. Some fusels, too. Really can’t dwell on this too long, though it shows traces of having been more interesting if it were only fresh.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Sample #3 [bottled] at the first Biertest-Online Gathering, Düsseldorf, 29.12.06) Clear, pale golden colour with a short foamy white head. Sweetish and grainy nose, shy herbal hops with a touch of grass. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light bodied, medium carbonation. Grainy, slightly corny and papery taste; sweet-bitter finish with traces of grassy, metallic hops. Uninspiring brew, but still drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared with the gang at Decemberfest 2006 -- courtesy of Jon. Pours a very light, clear pale yellow with lots of bubbles and a small diminishing white head. Aroma: Oh, I’m not fond of that! Sweet, sugary and grainy with faint stale hops -- yuck. Watery flavour starts with a weird stale hop taste followed by grain and corn and a very light bitter finish. Light bodied. Not good at all.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale gold with medium-large white top. Little to no lacing. (3-)
Aroma of rice, pale plain grainy nose. Simple.
Very bland, light watery with some hints of sweet corn. Very light hop finish. Forgettable brew.
