2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Chiara con schiuma evanescente.
Senza infamia e senza lode.
Piuttosto maltata, poco luppolo.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I am just about to give up drinking in order to save money during college. This depresses me, so I had to seek out something beautiful; a case of Westmalle Dubbel and Trippel. Oh, and this four back of funky bottled lager. This should be fun, because apparently this beer has been sitting on the shelf since April 2011. Hey, my Belgians can handle that without a sweat, why not this? Pours a urine-yellow, like most all lager, barely any head, though that was expected. Not getting much aroma out of this, so now I am worried I am about to take a swallow of retched rotten beer... Actually, I will have to give Viru credit; two and a half years past its expiration date, and it is not bad at all. I’d drink this dated stuff long before I’d try your average North American adjunct megaswill. Mellow taste, straw, slight malty sweetness, hint of hops and ending without any of the wretched chemical aftertaste the megaswills are so fond of offering. Pretty bottle, too.

Weird bottle->session. Pale gold with medium white head. A: mild grains, malt, corn. T: sweet grains, grass, malt. Moderate carbonation, bright and zesty. Better than expected.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle in it’s peculiar shape. Bright light yellow color, lear, small white head. Faint notes of corn, fruits, banana on the nose. Grainy, sweet malts, some grassy hops. Not very palatable, undefined finish. Carbonated, oily texture, light body. Average lager.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
10floz/300ml bottle into a mug. Served cold.
Aroma: Actually it’s quite malty! Sweet-ish malt.
Appearance: Slightly hazy, somewhat dark yellow body with a dissipating, fizzy white head.
Taste: Sweet malt. Really strange. Different. It’s sweet.
Palate: Light body, abrupt malty finish.
Overall: Definitely interesting. Worth a try. Can’t decide how I feel about this one.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle during a night out in Manchester. The unusualness of the bottle is the only real thing of note. It’s a very average international pale lager, cooling on a hot Manchester night, pale gold colour, medium white head, grassy...

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Very light pale body with almost no foam. Aroma is weak, background sugar. Taste is malty, too sweet, almost no bitterness, high oxidation, unbalanced. Body is light, medium carbonation.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden transparent appearence, low on foam, mild vegetable-like aroma. A light sweet undertone, very shy biterness. Aftertaste hints of citrus. Quite softly carbonated.
Very humble character, this beer does not speak loudly.

Pour out of weird bottle, very clear yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grain, sour fruits, hints of lemon. Taste is cracker, biscuit, bread, slight earth, touch of corn, finishing dry. Eh.
