3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice effervescent and limpid golden beer. Relatively dense head (for that style). Fresh floral aroma. Malty and hoppy flavor followed by a long bitter final. Very good "everyday beer" which tends to be the obvious choice after helping a friend to move.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
341 ml bottle. Pours light golden, massive billowy head. Great aroma, sweet but with piney hop notes, quite strong. Very soft-bodied, not a lot of action in the bitterness dept for a pils. Aroma's the best thing going here, and that alone doesn't save it from mediocrity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Natural and refreshing is an apt description for this pale golden piney brew. Smells like a hoppy forest on the edge of a pine forest and has that nice carbonated bubbling brook type of feel to it. Straightforward maltiness and slight citrus tinge too. Pleasant but not outstanding - but better as an easy-drinking beer than many other lagers. Might be suffering slightly in this rating from following the Unibroue's Edition 2004 which is a great beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blond color; big head. Light bread and vanilla aroma. Poor taste, very common lager, not even as much bitter as other ones, and a bit metallic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice golden color and acceptable head retension for this style of beer. There is pronounced aftertaste with a bitter finish and I like the old 'stubby' style bottle. A decent beer but not as good as most unibroue beers.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pretty clear, golden yellow with a quickly dissolving white head and minimal lace.
Aroma is fresh pears, pine trees and light notes of molasses. A bit of unripe honeydew hides.
Nicely crisp, with a medium to thin mouthfeel and a warm, flowing finish. Just a bit of tartness right on the end, but this is a beer with a nice balance of malt and hops.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Toasted malt aroma. Clear golden yellow with a decent white head that diminishes to a coating. Some grainy flavour with a bitter finish. Crisp mouthfeel. A thirst quencher with a bit of extra flavour. Especially good on a sultry summer evening. Bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden colour with a nice head. Fruity aroma and a taste of malt and nut. Not exceptional, but quite okay.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is slightly smokey mixed with a dry american beer. Liquid is golden in color with a white hean, large at first, but leaves quickley. Initial taste is dry with a skunky note. This is the Unibroue version of Heiniken.
