1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I’m amazed that I have heard so many positive reviews of this beer. It was colossally disappointing. Very little flavor and a watery palate. Give me a Singha, Tsingtao, or a Kirin Ichiban any day over this. I may deserve a caning for saying this but Sillipore needs to stick to business trade and stay out of brewing.

Bottled. Clear yellow beer, very small white head. Sweet nose with a touch of hops. Light body and lightly sweet taste which is somewhat malty. Some strange bitterness in the finish, doesn’t last long, though. Not metallic, but not balanced.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light yellow body, medium white head. Clean slightly herbal nose, weak initial maltiness that disappears into a bland citric finish. Watery lager, poor but not insulting, drinkable if you are just thirsty.
