2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle brewed in Belgium. Pale golden colour, malty to neutral nose. The beer starts malty-grainy. Not very balanced. The mainpart is a bit sweet, not to distinctive. The aftertaste is crisp, a bit malty-grainy and slightly sweet.
--> nice, easy to drink beer with a strange kind of bitterness in the end. A bit unround.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flaske (kveldens andre) på RB samling hjemme (takk til Asle Bjørn): diskret aroma. Standard pilsutseende. Vakker etikett. Littt mer smak og munnfylde enn Carib Lager som var kveldens første. Passer nok fint i sol&varme ved Middelhavets strender.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33cl bottle from Ambrosetti. Pours pale yellow with a small, white head. Slightly skunky aroma with grain, hints of sour green apples and cooked vegetables and hints of grass. Medium sweet with some slightly strange sour notes and a very light bitterness. Watery and not much flavour, but would imagine it would taste better on a hot day. Drinkable, but not much more.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a stemmed glass. ABV 5.2%. New country tick.
Pours a plae golden yellow beer, with something more than one finger of white head, quite thick, with good retention. Medium lacing left on the glass. Slow activity in it.
Aroma of malts, a bit dirty. Some hay too, not very appealing but not that bad either.
Taste is sweet, lots of malts, medicinal alcohol, grass. It becomes bitter on the aftertaste though, with good duration.
Medium thin body, low carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate.
Overall good as long as it was cold, but nothing extra ordinary.
