2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,5 l can, Tesco.
Clear golden one with a small lacing white head. Brady malt and sourish yeast, minimal straw-like hop in the nose. Medium-weak body, lively carbonation, metallic-crystall mouthfeel with some malt and herbal hops. Not a big deal. Sourish carbondioxid aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear golden with huge fluffy white head leaving some lacing. Aroma of malts, hops, hay and sweet bread. Low carbonation, lean watery mouthfeel. Acidy, sourish hoppy, slightly sweet flavor, thin body. Unnoticable palate. Finishes with a shortlived dry and tart hoppy aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pale golden with a fluffy head. Aroma of sweet malt with some bready hops. A heavy oily texture, with even hop flavour and a very nice lingering aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Meh. Poured with a nice, foamy, frothy, white head and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a clear, light yellow and a couple of small bubble trails. Aroma is cereal, starch, and a little hop and malt. Flavor is like nose with a tiny bit of sweetness coming out, especially in the finish. Other than that, flavor is quite bland. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like I said and strangely, has a little alcohol warmth. Forgettable beer. Better than a light tho, generally speaking (’ceptin’ Sam Adams).

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle in Germany. Is a pale yellow color with a short lasting white head. Aroma is nice and malty but first smell is offensivse and burns a bit. Taste is thin and mellow. Again not offensive but little taste. Palate has a slight metal end, but also not offensive. Lower end, even for Oettinger.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tall-boy can found at a Costa Rican supermarket. Sort of a lucky find in these parts. Sweetish malty nose, partly corny, metallic and fruity. Rich golden color. Fairly balanced taste, fairly sweet and moderately bitter, with some alcohol showing through. Drinkable enough if you don’t think too hard. In the end it’s a bit sweet and boozy, and otherwise there’s not much here.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Clear, crisp golden color with a full, bubbly white head. Good retention but no real lacing left.
S - A bit of a grassy hop smell along with some grain and vegetable aroma. Slight bready malt smell also makes it way through. In between a heavy cooked vegetable and a hoppy lager, with it being slightly closer to a cooked vegetable one.
T - Dominated by a grassy, hop bitterness. Some grainy and vegetable background, but not a lot of grain taste and almost no bready malt taste.
M - Light body with high carbonation. Fizzy and crisp mouthfeel and fairly watery.
D - Not bad, but not great. It is light and provides some hoppy flavors, but it is a little one dimensional and not very balanced. It worked with the burger and hot dog I was having, but it doesn’t really make me want another one, just a nice beer to have to drink.
Notes: A cheap beer that doesn’t taste horrible, but there are certainly better beers and examples than this one. Not very balanced but makes a decent summer time beer to drink.
