2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Grassy, flowery aroma. almost no hops whatsoever. Very plain taste. Unpleasant finish. I donít want to say sour because Lambiks are sour and Lambiks taste good to me... Perhaps "metallic" is the phrase Iím looking for. At any rate, this beer is not really very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw golden with a foamy white head. Aroma was grainy and floral. At least there was something there. Taste was floral and got worse as it went down. Not much to brag about here.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft in Daytona. Clear straw color with small white head that diminished slowly. Light sweet aroma. Medium body. Small grainy flavor with a short finish. Poor brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
taste kind of like heineken. nothing really special here. 2 dollars a bottle at the bar down the road, so not a bad deal. ill sip on my yeti after coming home though, so thats the best part of this beer - is knowing that i can drink an awesome stout after this.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a pale, clear yellow from the bottle with lots of bubbles. Head is thin, but hangs around, probably because of reinforcements from the bottom. Smells light a a bit stale, some wheat field. Tastes stale and lightly bitter, nothing to wrte home about. Not a great beer, in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is decent if you are forced to drink an import. Still really bitter as most European beers are but after a couple youíll start not to notice it so much.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden blonde with a frothy white head. Not much in the nose, maybe a smidge of honey and grass. Taste is clean but not flavorless. Some hints at citrus, slightly acidic but cleansing. Not much in the way of hoppiness. Not bad for a premium lager.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Half-litre can. Pours a light, almost greenish yellow with a large white head. Slightly skunky. Flavour is lacking. Seriously lacking. On the good side, thereís no bad tastes, but thatís because thereís very little taste at all. Iím actually drinking it as I write this, and I still canít detect any real flavour. Clean finish, but generally overrated. Drinkable, though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap. Yellowy gold with a substantial white head. Grainy nose. Weak grain flavor. Crisp finish, and it is oddly drinkable, but not a good lager, for sure. Maybe you keep drinking it to try to find some flavor.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells grainy and vaguely of yeast and...I donít know, funky somehow.
It tastes even less and really isnít hard to drink, but neither is it a pleasure.
Itís a disappointment, not because of the flavour, but because of a lack thereof.
