2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour form a 22 oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with white head, good head retention. Aroma dominated by malt - clean malt, no adjunct or corn to my nose. Taste is light sweet malt from start to finish, the barest hint of a sour astringency at the very end is the only suggestion of hops. A pleasant brew though rather plain.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this bottle poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was basically a clear yellow color with a softly rising carbonation trying to fill a rapidly dissipating head that didnít leave any lacing.
The smell tried to have a sweet malt running all over, but it basically just came to me as sweetened corn and a little grassy.
The taste was mainly sweet and had the grassiness come back. There was a sweet dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat pretty light and sessionable and the carbonation seems to sit exactly right for a pale lager.
Overall, not a bad beer, but nothing over the top. I say its worthy of coming back to.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours a clear light yellow, with a faint head. Aromas are pale malts, corn flakes, cardboard, green apples, grass. Taste is sweet, but in a sickening way, with an off-tasting bitterness. Mouthfeel is weirdly oily and fizzy, Iím sure the person whoíd market this would use the word "Crisp". Overall this is bland and not particularily pleasant.

Bottle 65 cl.
Pale yellow with off-white head. Weak nose of hops, and some sweetness, maybe corn. Taste is cereal, some perfume and light bitterness. Not unenjoyable but rather boring.

Typical straw yellow pour with sweet grain flavor that tastes similar to a German malt. Thin but enjoyable.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A little head that vanishes quickly. Itís got the right colour. The booze comes out easy and it dominates. It tries to be sweet but the mix of booze and sweet is off putting. Grainy, grassy with buttery. Worth the tick but thatís all.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear, pale yellow with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is skunky, very grainy, and mild breadiness. The taste continues with a grainy theme. Its a bit buttery with some metallic flavors as well. But at least it isnít as bad as it smells. It lacks much of an aftertaste, although I do get some floral hints. Light in body, with a good amount of carbonation, but a thin texture. I suppose that I can happily say that it is at least mildly drinkable and I was able to take this one down.
