3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours light golden, medium white fizzly head, spotty lacing, with minor carbonation. Aroma of malts, but mainly grass. Flavor is crisp, easy, slightly grassy but without much grain. Finishes grassy, but clean. A definite summer beer.

66 cl green bottle. Very cold which is a must for thr style(& especially on a midSummer evening.Poured a clear straw with nice fat bubbles & white short lived head like most macro lagers.Crisp fruity & refreshing but not at all bitter. Full mouthfeel not a bit watery.Alcohol finish. A nice beer in its place. My wife buys it for me in the supermarket when she’s unsure.

This beer is so weak. I would take this over the mass marketed Buds, Millers, Coors and Heinekens any day however. The aroma is very very faint but quite nice. It’s pretty average. I would drink this but you don’t get much out of it as far as flavor and body goes. It is quite thirst quenching.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2007 A beer to buy cheap on a booze cruise. Not bad - good average flavor without much bitterness. A bit surprising that this beer comes from the same country that makes lambics. An average EU macro that is slightly better than its American counterparts.

Tap: Very pale gold with a white head that lasted the wole glass. Good lacing right the way down to the bottom. Not much aroma to speak of, some hops and malt. Not much though. Taste was the same. Pretty watery. Great fine carbonation. Odd bitterness on the finish. Average.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle/Draft - Golden yellow in color with a white head. Aroma is fairly light but some hops and faint malt. Easy drinking, but uneventful. Not my favorite.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Poured a golden colored beer with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is mostly light floral with some malt. Taste is very light and refreshing with again some malt and floral aspect coming through. Medium carbonation with light body. Very little else to mention for this beer apart from the fact that it seems to be better on tap then in bottle. Overall, a refreshing session-type lager.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A beer I didn’t much like when younger -- many mass market beer drinkers mistake the hoppy aroma for skunkiness. Nice and clean but not spectacular.
