2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear light golden pour with a white head. Rather vegetal aroma to this beer. Quite watery and metallic, too. Sweet grain, apple, and sugar on the nose. Watery flavor with a decent sweetness of grain and sugar. Somewhat grassy and certainly metallic. Light vegetal flavor, some yeast, and that’s pretty much all she wrote.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
50 cL can. Slightly corny aroma. Hint of grass. Brassy gold color with a very impressive white head. Medium body with slightly harsh carbonation. Starts with pale malt sweetness accompanied by Noble hop. A bit watery towards the finish, which is a tad vegy with definite, though light, bitter. It’s ok.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Big can. Yellow. Sweet and very malty nose. Flavor is the same. Very sweet. Caramel malt and some light hops. Bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
16 ounce can from Trader Joe’s Glen Allen, VA. Pours a crystal clear pale gold color with a large fizzy white head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of grass, corn and hay. Taste is watery, grainy, some grass and slightly metallic. One of the most watery and tasteless beers I’ve ever had. Thin. Watery. Watery and thin. Good thing too as I’m thirsty. Glad it was only a buck.

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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Unappealing thin gold color with a thin white head. Skunky nose (should go without saying - green bottle). Really no redeeming qualities to speak of. Weak and boring. I disliked this one as much as Oranjeboom’s other Pils and I am rating it as suck...I mean such.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml can. BB 19.08.15. Pours a clear and light pale gold wiht a large industrial white head. Smell is basic hay and tart hops, bit of rubber perhaps, some mint (not super oxidized but heading that way, or pastuer-oxidized). Flavor is grainy, some sweetness, watery with some spiced hops, some fruit. Very far form a pils. A typical pale lager that I would pay 20 cents for in Germany.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Clear pale golden/yellow pour with a white head. Cheap grain, slightly sweet, a bit malt-liquor like but ’softer’ than that. Beats BMC - barely.
