2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not bad, definitely better on the cold side. I really enjoyed my first sip, but the beer seemed to get worse instead of better as it warmed. Some offensive characteristics came out as are usually associated with pale lagers such as a sour corn malt taste, as well as a lack of hop movement. This beer looks good, nice golden colour and a head which really lasts and I love the clear bottle (although I’m sure that will lead to some skunkiness in cases), but I don’t think I will buy this one again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pale gold with virtually nothing for a head. Of all the Sleeman products this is the cleanest and most refreshing. I don’t remember ever having one that had skunked out. Not as sweet and has somewhat more hop balance than the usual suspects.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml clear bottle. Pale gold in colour, actually managed to hold onto a head for quite some time. Dryish aroma, light grassy hop. Pretty light in body, bordering on fizzy. Malty/grainy flavours, trace bitterness in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
For a pale lager, this one is very good. A clean simple finish, I would be glad to offer to any guest.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Stenchy, skunk laden aroma with some mustiness. Pours a golden yellow, thin head. Harsh aftertaste. Corn flavour. Another putrid offering from Sleeman. Thank god Unibroue is there to balance out the products.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Purchased in a Sleeman sampler for a Thurs chat night. Pours with a thin white head and a medium gold with few carbonation bubbles. Aroma of earthy hops and some rotten grass clippings. The flavor is a slightly minty with some strange wheat. Alost has that playful saaz hops chracter. The flavors are muted with soapy aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber, with a white head. Weak on the malt. There is a soapiness about it. A slight degree of crispness. Medium lingering on the palate. Lively carbonisation. saaz hopping?

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mid gold colour. Cardboardy aroma. Sweetish flavour, with a touch of malt and some bitterness coming through on the finish. Otherwise, not much else going on. Certainly not the worst I’ve had, but not too interesting. 341ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 27 September 2004.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
2004 bottle. Pours a urine-like yellow with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of sour corn and light alcohol notes. Some paint thinner and some sharp notes of something. Extra light body and vigorous overcarbonation. Flavor of corn and some bitter something (perhaps hops?) Not much to speak about.
