2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow body with almost no head. Not very attractive. Mild, semi-sweet aroma. Nothing really stands out. Watery palate with bright carbonation. The flavor is not very exciting but not offensive either. Starts sweet and fades to a mild bitterness. Meh.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear light yellow, good head. Some cereal malt aroma. Taste is malty with a touch of hops - typical industrial lager. Note however - it’s in a brown bottle so at least it’s not skunked.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a loose mid-sized foamy white head. Moderately sweet and slightly sour doughy malty aroma with notes of dust, grassy and slightly metallic hops. Slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. Plain malty and corny taste ahead with notes of cardboard, especially towards the faintly bitter finish. Yawn. 28.VIII.10

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle from the LCBO. 4.9%. Pale yellow pour with a bubbly weak white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is cereal grains, corn, light hoppy whiff. Taste is more of the same, grainy with rice undertone, bland, and bubbly. Medium-strong carbonation. Nothing to excite in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small offwhite head. Pale yellow body with strong carbonation. Light farmyard and earth and ketchup aroma. Dry-sweetish papery mealy sugary taste with earthy notes. Light body. Mealy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy peas and resin aftertaste with corn-like grassy notes. Could be a lot worse. (0.4l bottle, Øl og Mat-festivalen, Oslo.)

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
355 ml bottle from Premier Wine & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear gold with tiny white cap. Sweet, fairly stale grains in the aroma. Taste is sickly sweet with not much beer flavour in evidence. A little cloying sweetness but otherwise no real finish to speak of. Not as light bodied as one might expect from a bad pale lager. Quite poor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good bready clean aroma for a pale lager. Perhaps there is this processed olfactory in the background. Good initial CO2. Decent lager flavors with the hints of processed metal carying thru. Very amican pale lager style. Made in vietnam, no? Some mild to medium malt liquor bitter alky bite on the finish makes me think this is higher than 4.9% alky. Otherwise goes down as easy as any other american pale lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Found at a supermarket in Paris. Pours average yellow, decent head. Aroma is of slightly roasted grains. Taste is fermented barley, fruits. Kind of smooth, not awful.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
sixer from azwine 6/5/10.
rich straw colored pour with a short lived white head.
it smells vaguely of horse feed... dusty grain mixed with some skunky hop action, a touch of lemon and floral rice.
the flavor is the same... tingly hops on the finish ad lingering with old grain in the aftertaste.
the mouth feel is crisp and clean.
not good but not terrible. i could drink the other five in under three minutes without thinking about it... 4/3/4/3/10/2.4
