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.

Vraiment ordinaire. Un gout de fleur alors que j aime le houblon, elle n a pas darrier gout, c est bien.

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.

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.
