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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Decemberfest 2006: Poured yellow, very little head. Aroma of corn, cardboard, malts, and grains. Flavour is cardboard and straw, and heavily carbonated at that. If I were Dogbert I’d probably wave my paw at Italian beer. *sigh*

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated light and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops astringent soft rice and softly acidic. An OK brew just nothing special.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Lemon and corn in the lightly herbal aroma. Lightly hazy blonde body is topped by a shy white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Somewhat metallic aroma is vaguely sweet but also offers a grainy character and some creamed corn. Very low bitterness. Watery, low carbonation, light body. Bottle (Ireland, May-06).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Large off-white head that mostly diminished, decent lacing, carbonation, transparent, and an orange hue. Nose was malty, somewhat grassy and hint of hops. Flavor was malty, caramel, sweet, grassy, and some hops. Tingly mouthfeel and light-medium body. Just so-so.
