1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
ummmmm, I’m prety shure I’m drinking a beer, why cant I taste a beer? Pours are clear lightly bubbly yellow. A little barn yard ceral on the nose and not much more. mouthfeel is actualy rather refreshing, overall thinness with a nice chewy essence holds the masive amount of tinny bubbles very nicly. Taste isnt realy there. Sweet grains and a little bit of malt dance with the TINIEST trace of some grassy hops. No undertones at all. Aftertaste is skunky, what do you expect in a clear bottle? Not realy worth the effort. Cheers

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden yellow body with a big flufyf white head, and decent lacing. Mild muted aroma of malt and grain. Flavour is very mildly bitter grainy malt with grassy overtures. Decent and quaffable on this hot day, the heat and a chilled glass probably aided my enjoyment of this one. Average palate. Surprisingly solid for a macro lager, and unskunked despite clear bottle.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Light gold with a large bubbly white head. Aromas are sweet grain and caramel with hints of corn, Flavours are sweet grain with corn, sweet sticky caramel helps and there are traces of hop on the finish. Pretty poor overall.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, bright, light straw with a very tiny amount of film as head. Some pleasant noble hops in the aroma that quickly gives way to corny malt and skunk (stupid clear bottles). Malty skunk flavour (stupid clear bottles) with a medium amount of corn. Light and crisp with medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty good beer overall. I’ve never been a fan of Sleeman Products but I must say this beer is pretty good. Best served cold, refreshing on a hot day. Goes down smooth with a bit of a metallic aftertaste. Pale with very little head.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dorée et claire, faible mousse blanche pleinement diminuante, dégagement gazeux actif lors du service. Aromes végétaux et de timide houblon floral. Flaveur de maïs se terminant par une imposante présence savonneuse. Moyennement effervescente en bouche, texture plutôt aqueuse, corps passablement mince.

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.
