2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Blind #8- 12oz bottle
A: Light straw ale with brilliant clarity, when held to my pc screen, pretty sure the pixels are amplified for visual assessment. Single finger of white foam falls quickly to a sheet of the same with a central cap. the Collar hugs the glass, but doesn’t keep around - no lacing. (3)
S: Grain, minerals. Reminds me of a Picpoul wine. Very French/mineral and chemical smells. Hints of banana and yeast. Wouldn’t call this complex. (2)
T: Watered down vitamin water with carbonation. When I say vitamin water, I’m talking a One-A-Day pill, crushed and mixed into a solute, then carbonated. Hint of butter. (2)
M: light and still sticky - seems to stick to my palate and dries it to an extent. Highly carbonated. (2)
O: Not really feeling this beer. (2)
Guess: lager of some kind. Cheap.
Reveal: Tusker lager from Kenya.
Serving type: bottle

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, grains, quite sweet, barn, hay. Sweet malty flavour, hint of bitterness. Watery body, finish grains, malts. Decent. Feels rather like a somewhat classic German lager, but it‘s not quite my cup of tea.

Bottle a gift from Blade86 (Thanks). Clear golden color, white fast falling foam. Medium to high carbonati,on, soft body. Aroma: Sweet malty, a bit caramel. Taste: Malty with minimal unpleasant bitterness in short finish, imbalanced between to high sweetness, maltiness and bitterness. Another boring Pale Lager.
