2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle, bought in Germany but labelled as Taybeh, not as Belgian-brewed. Golden with a thin white clingy head and light aromas of tart lemon and malt. Pleasant enough, with faint honey and grain notes.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,33l. Pours in very a pale clear liquid, with gauzing weak head. Aroma is grass, hay, some hops. Palate is crisp, clean, watery. Carbonation is medium lively but mouthful. Taste is light, mild and very simple. Finish has some grassy dry hops notes and ends in a short mild bitter hops lingering. Overall, very straight forward Pilsener character with some kölsch-like top-fermented nuances. Very easy to drink and still clean and aromatic in character despite mildness. I didn’t notice any rice or corn papery notes in this one. Good solid beer.

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.
