1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle shared at GBBF Friday, 16/08/13, big thanks to Dorin.
Clear light golden with a thin white head.
Nose is pale malts, grass, corn, cereals.
Taste carries less depth, grass, cereal, an air of mass production about this one.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation with a little spritz.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From Boystout. Gold with small head. Smells like a grainy brew, and is unfortunately weakened further by sourness and a very thin, fizzy palate.

500ml bottle. Nice golden body with good creamy yellow head, medium retention. Aroma: cereals, whipped cream, hops, sweet vanilla. Taste: round mouthfeel, a little malt/hop bitterness, a little sweet, not too complex, but surprisingly decent. A tasty easy drinking one.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First brewed in June 2009, PET 2.0 l. Golden colour, head is small but fairly strong, aroma is rather neutral and the palate... Fortunately, the taste is "draft beerish", not too complex, some hop(e)s in the end. Nothing common with usual Cahul burnt-flowerish-oaky-dusty palate.
