1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Light brown color, very little aroma. It is very hard to taste the dark malt.
Appears to be a cheap adjunct beer with very little dark beer character.
Another disappointment from Shell´s.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle in hotel room, picked up at a Hy-Vee in Lincoln, NE. Clear bottle = classy x10. A bit hazy, light brown appearance with a cream head. A bit nutty, light toffee, skunky, fairly shitty aroma. Pretty shitty, very very metallic, nutty, toffee, bland flavor. Each sip is like licking a 9v battery. Wowza.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear (!) bottle - Pours clear amber with some reddish highlights. Foamy light tan head. Nose has a little metal and some sugary sweetness to it. Creamed corn and whole wheat bread. Taste is bland, with a light bready sweetness. Hints of raisins and other vague dark fruit. Just a touch of herbal hops on the finish. Pretty boring, but a six pack of these could go down mighty quick if the sweetness didn’t get to you first.

Bottle. Weak malt aroma. Light brown with a small beige head. Malt kind of like stale bread. Pretty gross, but I’ve actually had worse.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Found some old notes that I had tasted these in the States many years ago.
To be honest I can’t remember that much of these beers, but next to the beers name I wrote a little bit of info.
So these notes are for me, to ensure and complete my list and to use this database as mine too.
If you want to consider this as a tick, do so.
It is for my own record, that I know I had tasted it once.
It was not bad, but I was not impressed either: pretty sweet and malty.
