Straw yellow with a nice head. The aroma has notes of grain, fruit and light citrus. The flavour has notes of citrus, fruit, grain, malt and even if it isn’t outstanding in any way, it’s much better than expected, and actually quite OK.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white bubbly head. Sweet malts in the aroma with some bittering hops. Flavour is grassy hops withy some weak malts balancing it up. Also quite salty notes. Not hopeless, but just boring.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Apparently brewed by an unnamed german brewery for a marketing company called Protege International.
A mere glance at the tacky label identifies this as an awful bulk lager sold under the pretense of being a classic american beer. Ah well.
Pours an extremely pale gold with white head. Very lively carbonation.
Faint aroma of malt and hops. Hint of diacethyl sweetness.
Watery, fairly inoffensive bulk lager flavor. Faintly metallic, with some crude hop bitterness which lingers more than is called for in the aftertaste.
Clean mouthfeel, very light body, heavy carbonation.
So, yes, a typical bulk lager in an exceptionally embarrasing bottle. Nothing more, nothing less.
