2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very pale almost straw yellow, with a white head that last for a small time. Yeasty and almost chewy reminded me almost of a Belgian, not the greatest but at the Thai restaraunt when I had this it really cuts through the heat of the Drunken Noodle dish that I was eating.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma isnt too much to brag about. Light yellow in color with little head. Flavor is full of hops and a decent hint of spice. Better than average, but nothing to write home about. Goes well with Thai food.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Yellow colour, quite highly carbonated. Doesn’t taste of much but makes a good accompaniment to thai food. Better than the crappy UK brewed lagers anyway.

How boring for a 100% malt beer can you get? Refreshing, but it distracted from my chinese food dinner that accompanied it. Slight butter flavor along with extreme carbonation. Watery aroma.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Very pale golden yellow with no head to speak of. Light grain and malt aroma. Flavor is surprisingly sweet with grain and a faint backbone of malt. Nowhere near as strong a flavor as I was expecting. Watery with a bit of a grainy feel on the palate and a slight metallic finish. Just didn’t do much for me.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Greeny gold in colour with practically no head. Some malt on the palate, and a lightly lingering finish, but overall, a bit of a disappointment. Have had this in the past and seem to remember enjoying it...but not that much tonight!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
33 cl bottle. Pale golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma of hops and notes of maize and malt. Malty flavour with a dry finish with some crisp, ends up with a metalic unpleasant finish. But overall very common and average.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355ml bottle. Pale golden colour. No head very little lacing. Aroma is rather offensive. The only flavour I’m getting from it is malt. I guess thats what they were trying for but its not for me.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
my sample was very skunked. I realize this affects my rating, but I feel I need to review it anyways. The aroma was roughly skunk and rotting vegetable matter. Not very nice. Appearance was pale yellow, perhaps urine color? Taste was watered down with cardboard and corn flavor. This was horrible. Ugh.
If I can get a fresher sample, I will revisit this, but I can’t say I’m looking forward to it.
