1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can BB 6/9/2016 so getting close to the line.
Aroma is grainy with a background of wet cardboard (see BB date).
Poured clear golden straw with minimal head.
The initial (mild) bitterness drops away to a rather sweet alcoholic aftertaste with lingering wet cardboard finish.
Nothing complex here folks - a cheap Euro-brewed lager designed to get you pissed quickly.

Can 50 cl. Pours a clear yellow to golden with a small and fading white head and an aroma of sweet malts, alcohol and aluminium. The taste is mainly malty sweet with the alcohol not that well hidden. Just your average boozer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl Can from Dirck III. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of sulphury hops, skunk/weed, sweet fruits, alcohol. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity, alcohol, fusels, decent bitterness, more sweetness after swallowing. Light bodied. Not the worst in its class.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear golden beer, with a small foam head. The aroma has an increase in floral noteas maybe created by an inrease in the amount of hops. When is tasted the perception is quite watery, and the alcoholic taste is perceived at the end. Maybe if you want to get drunk easily this is a good option.

Tap @ Pub, in Italy
The selling aspect of this beer was the awesome logo it had on the tap. My friends and I were in an amazing little bar in Rome and spoke almost no Italian (and the bar girls no English) so after becoming regulars we’d walk in and call out "PIRATES!". But seriously, it is a very average beer - it looks lovely in the class and even has an alluring aroma; the taste however is a tad disappointing. Would drink again, though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden lager colour with a white head that sinks quickly into the glass. I don’t want the best part of this beer to be the residue from the last beer in the glass, but to be honest I am not expecting much (I did buy this beer for a mate as a joke once).
Aromas of mandarin peel, so a lightish malt but nothing else. Flavours of sweet tangerine and... and... and... oh bugger all else. Doesn’t leave a lasting impression of anything worth writing home about but to its credit it isn’t completely awful.

can . yes nice gold colour and white head ( which knows better than to stick around !) aroma not too full but essentially malt and alcohol . taste is unsubtle - malty sweetness with alcohol overlay . didn’t expect anything else - trying only for research purposes .. macho , full on , no attempt at complex flavours and tastes .when petrol dies up this will find its true market

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Well, at least it has decent head and a golden body. The aroma is earthiness and malt, surprisingly no tin or adjuncts to be sniffed. The flavour, however, is that usual cloying sweetness brought on by adding lots of crap to the wort in lieu of stuff like hops. I have this theory that InBev just has one giant strong lager vat and siphons it into different labelled cans for various markets - because that’s what it tastes like.
