2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
250ml bottle. Vintage 1990. It opens with a fizz and very good carbonation. Soft, but very lively. I’ve had fresher beers that had less life. It’s a soft, creamy and fruity beer - no off flavours at all. No cardboard notes. Just a soft, fruity, creamy beer. Some gentle metallic notes. Some sweet apple. Very enjoyable, and surprisingly fresh tasting. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

No better or worse than the macro-brewed lagers here in the States. Typical corn malt combo with light hops and carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A 33cl bottle at a Cote Brasserie in London, the ABV was given as 4.6% though. A pretty inocuous lager, nothing wrong with it but little to praise either. Very standard - the food was good though.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cold bottle in Cote restaurant, sold as ’Meteor 1640 Blonde’. Nothing too exciting to report - a substandard lager. Finish is watery & ash. There are much better lagers available.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled from an 8.45 oz green bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a large creamy yellow-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy grass, perfume and a bit of lemon. The flavor was tangy and a touch bready with faint grass and perfume. Medium length finish and medium body. Bland and inoffensive.
