1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is clear light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with light notes of plastic and DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, husky, unclean.
Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, slightly metallic.
Sampled side-by-side with Oranjeboom Premium. Same beer or different? Too close to call. Perhaps slightly more hops in the Oranjeboom, but impossible to know when each was brewed (the Peter’s Brand may be older). Either way, both are equally difficult to drink...the meaning of swill.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looked interesting on the shelf. Pours a pale straw color with a fading white head. Aroma of caramel, corn and cat. Some cat finds its way into the taste as well - an interesting counterpoint to the barnyard funk. Fix the problems and this might be an interesting beer, but as it is? Drainpour.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle... "Eastern You’re A Peein’ Lager & Ale Night"... Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is toffee and orange blossom honey with lesser floral and herbal notes. The malty flavor leans on the sweet side of balance. Notes of toffee and honey with minimal herbal, earthy bitterness. Medium-bodied and prickly. Mid-length, bitter-sweet finish. Better than expected, but I wasn’t expecting much.

Has the European import taste. Pilsner doesn’t bring much to the table. Sampled from Green bottle, which I paid too much for. Unfortunately, I have a collection of bottle caps and didn’t have this one, so.......yeah....

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Six Nice looking 1-pint aluminum tall boys.
Looks very hansom standing tall in the shopping cart with its neat design. Brought this home after paying 4.99 for six. Pours a nice clean straw color, very nice looking (Very Nice). Smells a bit old, skunky and harsh, like an import. The taste is overwhelming similar to the smell. Old, Skunky, bitter, sour, rusty, Heavy, little sweetness, maltyness or freshness. Just flat out offensive! What the Heck is this stuff? One that should be tried in order to appreciate the things you have!(like a warm can of Milwaukee’s best)

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells and looks awful. The tastie is also far from pleasant. A little hops and not much else. I’d prefer the Old English HG800 I had just before this.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice golden color w/ a shallow, loosly spatered beachball style froth. Froth dies quickly and leaves a small trace of brewers lace. Aroma of sharp skunk and hay. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Balanced and bittered nicely but nothing else. Plain and simply put, next ?

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Lovely. A very, very pale yellow with a head that vanishes in a flash. It’s got a green bottle skunkiness when first poured. That fades and leaves a light bread and corn aroma. Thin and mildly oily in the mouth. It’s got the flavor of a light BMC without the carbonation. Lovely.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Regular old piss yellow color with a fizzy dissipating head. Normal aroma of adjuncts with corn and malting. Flavor is bland and a typical lager of European macro style. what else can i say?
