Piwo butelkowe. Mocno słodowy aromat. Kolor jasny słomkowy klarowny z obfitą białą pianą, trzyma się do ostatniego łyka. W smaku pełne,słodowe dobrze wywarzona goryczkowość, przyjemnie zalega, wysycenie średnie. Spoko lager.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is waterig met weinig hop en blijft niet lang hangen. Niet erg bijzonder.

Funky can from Tesco. Golden with practically no head. Ordinary malty lager with a small sweetness.

Countbeer (4317) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2014
Large awesome looking can: Served in a shaker: Small white head on top of a clear golden yellow colored beer. Smells a bit like apple cider. With hints of malts, herbs and something yeasty/fermented... Flavour has some apple, malts, dust, bitters, rubber, herbs and some corn. Aftertaste is malty, light bitter, some dust, rubber and light apples. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, low to lightly medium bodied and a light creamy texture. Thirst clenching, strange with apples, but quite a decent pale lager.

Piana ?rednia du?e b?ble i szybko opada. Klarowne, s?omkowe. W aromacie delikatne nuty chmielowe i s?odowe. Wodniste, bez wyrazu. Na poziomie przeci?tnego koncerniaka. Niewiele si? w tym piwie dzieje.

Aroma: rice and malts. Appearance: clear straw color, white head. Taste: low bitterness, rice, honey, pharmaceutical aftertaste, watery. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, sweet and strange finish. Overall: Tragic beer.

Actually pours like beer - gold with a nice retaining white head. The aroma is of faint malt. The taste is also extremely mild but not offensive. It’s actually smooth in some sort of good way. Easy on the palate and not overly terrible. It resembles beer which is the best compliment I can give!

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a decent transparent golden yellow color with a two finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and left a ton of thick foamy lacing gracing the sides of the glass. Carbonation was seen rising at a mild pace. The smell was mainly sweetened corn. The taste was sweet through the corn. There was a light corn-like aftertaste with a quick sweet dry finish. On the palate, it sat pretty light and had a pretty good sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was fairly harsh but wasn’t overly done. Overall, I say this was a good beer. Its nothing to go overboard about but still fits the bill with Asian food.

Reviewed from notes. I poured this into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light clear yellow body that leaves a soft foamy white two finger head appears that lasts for a good minute. Spotty and foamy lacing embraces the sides of the glass. Light carbonation is seen slowly rising. The smell had corn/adjuncts up front with some rice as the beer warms. The taste was a decent mixture between the corn/adjuncts, rice and hops leaving a sort of slight bitterness in the taste. On the palate, it sat a light to medium, pretty watery, nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, hmmm..., not sure what to say other than it does remind me a lot like AAL’s (not as much flavor and lack of interesting aspects to it). I think before I go any further on being too critical with this style, I’d like to try some other Jappanese Rice Lagers.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow color, not much head. Aroma is rice and corn. Taste is malty, clean, a little metallic. Very drinkable and smooth. Not much going on with this one.
