2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Jan 2009: from BA. Found this beer in an Oriental Supermarket in Ghent, Belgium. The well used, obviously returnable orangey brown bottle held 500ml of beer, the rear label quoted 6.46% ABV.
Poured into a ’La Chouffe’ tulip glass three times.
Very pale urine colour with a good clean white foaming head on each pour. Carbonisation bubbles rising through the weak looking body throughout the review. The heads fell away from their original large toppings to a thinner but still deep covering.
No aroma for me, not even a hint of malts, so it got my normal 3 for a non smelling lager style beer.
There is a smattering of hops and malt in the taste but other than that nothing I could find at all. The alcohol is evident from the outset and because the beer is so thin in the mouthfeel and without any body, it takes over very easily and becomes the main feature.
I’m no expert on this style but this can’t be a good example surely?

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one of my favorite beers, but I must say the Imported is sold as Malt liquor in the US and is horrible compared to the Philippine version. Not a fair comparison.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is wet corn, meal, and cereal malt, and light spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation, light warmth.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of Beerandblues2 at the Baltimore Irish Chanukah tasting, 3/17/12. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grassy hops with a soapy note. The taste is grassy hops, grainy notes. Crisp, and not to bad, though not good. Thin bodied.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Strong corn in the sweet and lightly boozy aroma. Clear pale golden body is topped by a fizzy, white, rapidly and fully diminishing head. Flavour follows the aroma - lots of corn and quite sweet but there is some bitterness to take the edge off. Almonds/marzipan in the aftertaste. Watery texture with rather strong carbonation. Not my cup of tea. Shaker glass. Fridge temperature. Can (8%) purchased at Brewery Creek in February 2012.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is of malt and alcohol. Thin and watery, but with a hint of malt and a paint thinner like alcohol content. Definitely not the worst malt liquor I have ever tried, though.

330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head which leaves a few spots of lace. Aroma is cereal grains and grassy hops. Taste is malty sweet with some light hop bitterness and alcohol. Lighter body than expected and fizzy carbonation. Definitely, not for beer lovers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is grains and apples. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a bit of alcohol. Slightly rough around the edges but based on the style. not bad.
