2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Special for sentimental reasons. Shared this with my son -- our first ever beer together -- a few days after his 18th birthday. And in Petra, Jordan yet (he accompanied me on a business trip there).
A perfectly passable lager beer -- exactly what you need in the summer in a country as hot as Jordan...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml can. Pale golden crystal clear. Small white fine-laced head. Papery floral hops. Slightly sweet. Smooth texture. Rather dull, but could have been a lot worse.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mostly like the 8% variant of this beer. Strong, alcoholic, low-bodied, artificial, but still drinkable and not as bad as other ratings suggest.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Klar gyllene med vitt skum. Maltig spannmål i doft. Eldig, spannmål utan direkt beska. Spritig eftersmak. Rätt trist alkoholig dussinlager.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pretty much 8% but amped up a little. The alcohol is stronger, but so is the metallic nose and aftertaste. A bit of maltiness, but no subtlety. Hate to say it - but I actually prefer this to the 8% - "why?" you might ask. Because if you are scraping the bottom enough to drink this stuff you should drink something that tastes like alcohol. That’s all.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Copper color; initially it has a reasonably nice head. The aroma surprisingly features some nice malt. It has a medium body strength, just slightly oily; sweetish malt flavor; when cold, it seems to be drinkable, but as soon as it gets warmer, the alcohol presence becomes unbereable. Cheater.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can in Jordan. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Taste of sweet malt with some alcohol. Hops are hardly noticable. Not much bitterness. I didn’t think that this was drinkable, but it was. Better than expected from a 10% ABV light lager.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml can. Malt and herbal aromas. Pours pale gold, poor head and lacework. Light body, average carbonation. Taste is sweet. Not bad for a country with not beer (or any alcoholic beverage) tradition like Jordan, but nothing remarkable for this one.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml can. From Jordan. Thanks Arto!
Dark golden colour with small white head.
Sweet malty aroma with soda like sweetness and some alcohol.
Lots of alcohol in flavour. Some malt and soda like sweetness too.

500 ml can in Amman, Jordan. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Some fruit in the aroma. Palate is bland, very alcoholic taste little hop or malt at all.
