1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
32 oz. bottle from local Jewel. Think I’ll rate this, then use what I don’t want to boil some brats. An almost clear pour, but somewhat yellow in the glass with a big foamy head. Quite a skunky head at first, but that dissipates. What’s left is a nose of mostly corn syrup. Taste is somewhat fusel and "processed," although in a quantity like this I guess it doesn’t matter much. Fizzy and with some bitterness, which at least makes up a little for the very thin flavor.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from a colleague who bought it in El Salvador - thank you, Karsten! Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops, with notes of citrus and touches of malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish, malty and estery notes. Bitter and slightly estery and acetic aftertaste. A tolerable Pale Lager.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from North Gate: Appeared pale gold color with carbonation that looked like a 7-up or sprite but even more surprising was that this beer actually created a foam head. Not used to seeing cheap lagers create head like that. Aroma smells sweet with barley malts, corn and rice. Crisp refreshing palate and not as bad as I had expected. This lager drinks clean and is easily quaffed down. The beer actually taste somewhat okay and taste even better when drunk from the glass bottle instead of a pint glass. Affordable too. This could be something I get next time instead of the Mexican lagers.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
RBHD Tasting. Pours clear straw colored with a small white head. Aroma of sweet corn, mild caramel. Taste is light sweet with a dry finish, herbs and spices if I stretch my imagination. Clean dry mouthfeel.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fra prøveflaske, rester etter RBHD-samling på Askje 18.11.14: klar gylden uten skum. Smaker kunstig søt. Vandig og heldigvis nesten uten ettersmak. Slett ikke "an exquisite beer of intense flavour" slik de selv påstår.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Clear pale golden colour, moderate white head. Sweetish aroma, notes of newmown grass and candy. Sweetish flavour first, drier cardboard notes in the finish, hardly any bittering hops.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
32 oz bottle. (Buford Highway Farmer’s Market) Atlanta, GA.
Clear yellow golden colour with a small white head.
Sweet malt in the aroma.
The flavour is sweet malt, cardboard and mild grassy hops. Bad beer. But it’s a country tick. Thanks!
