Fairly ordinary lager, a bit watery on the palate. Don’t think I will be revisiting this one any time soon

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
10oz, unique, octagonal shaped bottle. 3.23.14 on the cap. Does that mean best by, or bottled on? Anyway, poured this into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint, for some reason.
Appearance: Pale yellow color that doesn’t seem to be completely filtered. No head. No lacing. Really just looking like piss water.
Smell: Stale corn... not even that fake corn syrupy corn aroma, just smells stale and a bit dirty. Dank. Not pleasant, and quite frankly off-putting. These sorts of beers don’t tend to smell GOOD, but this one almost comes off as flat out offensive.
Taste/feel: Thin with incredibly prickly carbonation is the very first thing I notice. I mean... prickly carbonation like a pop/soda kind of thing. The flavor, well... what flavor? A bit of that stale corn. Subtle sweetness. Wet cardboard, for sure. Adjuncts all over the place in this one. There’s really no aftertaste, bitterness, or sweetness whatsoever that I can tell. This is just an incredibly poor beer, and quite frankly I’m surprised at the high ratings for this brew considering its style.
A novelty sort of thing is all this is. The bottle’s neat, but the beer may honestly be worse than Bud Light in my opinion. Bud Light somehow has more flavor. This seriously might be the first time an adjunct lager sort of beer has actually let me down. I wish I waited a couple days to review this beer for April Fool’s Day, because this beer is a joke.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Tesco into a pint glass. Golden, lightly gassy with a bubbly-foamy head. The aroma is of Saaz and malt, nothing special. Sweet, malty, very bland. Lightly bitter. Not particularly impressive, but not terrible.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A pale yellow coloured beers with a weak white head. Cereal aroma, some malt and a hint of citrusy hop. A weak, dry mouthfeel. A dry cereal taste to start, biscuity and malty, with a background hoppy citrus fruit flavour. The finish is thin citrus and citrusy.

Piana żadna, aromaty słodowe. Bardzo słomkowe idealnie klarowne. Niskie nasycenie daje dużą sesyjność.
