1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0.5l can courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Poured a medium to big fluffy white head that went away leaving heaps of lacing on top of a slightly darker golden body. Light but somehow intensive alcohol with some maltiness in the nose. Whooo what fun. Alcohol, warming, some chalky bitterness and sweet maltiness, a bit metallic, and some ok herbal notes hm. Unbalanced and bad but not as cloying as it could’ve been which saves it from being and utter failure and lands it firmly among the regular failures. Fun fun fun.

Bevuta anche questa prima di una partita,non è esattamente un granchè.Della Tennent’s preferisco al massimo la Stout magari assieme a un bel piatto di spaghetti col sugo di muscoli.E comunque per me la birra scozzese si chiama Traquair e basta.Questa invece non è altro che l’ennesima birra da discount.

Tasted from a bottle in Italy. Gold and have medium top. Sweet malty taste. But you can feel the alchol. Short finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can 440ml. Pours gold with white-working class head. Metallic, sweet taste disguises a palate of alcohol, aggression, and unwanted pregnancy. Does the trick if you’re willing to settle for tasteless mediocrity.

A most uninteresting beer. Sweet tasteless with loads of alcohol. No doubt that will appeal to some but not me.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. A clear, almost golden beer with an off-white head. Alcohol, fruit, grains and hops in the aroma, quite raw and unpleasant, but not foul. Pale malts, hay, grass and alcohol in the flavor, lacking bitterness, and rather unpleasant, at least until your palate gets used to it. Warming, medium body. The beer is not off, it is not very good. A typical European strong lager, made for the guys in the park and the youth who wants to get drunk fast. (081031)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, pours yellow/orange with a tall rocky white head. Aroma is strong of malts with a good hop aroma that is citric. Taste is slightly sweet and sour with modedrate bitterness. Flavors are borderline tripel but the alcohol is non-existant in the mouth. Carbonation is light and helps it go down easy.

440ml bottle from Tesco. Golden body with a white foamy head, quickly diminishing. Vapour of alcohol and water. Very one-dimensional in the taste profile with little less than malty flavoured water added by a strong alcoholic component. Short tail and lively carbonated. My last beer during 15 days in St Andrews. Next stop: Standing Order in Edinburgh [10.11.2008].

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is alcohol, malt, sugar. Flavour is alcohol, malt, sugar. Too much alcohol in the flavour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange coloured beer with a small white head. Flavour is a bit alcoholic and watery. Very light body but ok beer. I was expecting worse. Especialy because it was expired for 2 years, maybe it got better. (can 50cl)
