A corked 750ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2013. Picked up a while back from Morrisons. Described on the label as a double-fermented lager; the ingredients include maize and rice. The Cobra website states that this is brewed in Belgium by Rodenbach.

Poured into a straight pint glass (twice). Bottle conditioned. A clear pale-gold colour with faint translucence and good carbonation. Forms a large head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding. Aroma of light malt with hints of overcooked veg, corn, mild fruity yeast esters and stewed leaves. A whiff of hot, solventy booze in the background. Meh...

Tastes of light malt with hints of adjuncts and a dry finish. Notes of faint grain, overdone veggies, corn and stewed leaves. A harsh, solventy whiff of booze in the background. Well-attenuated, with a mild bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with effervescent carbonation and decent body. Slightly oily on the palate. Rather astringent, with an aftertaste of harsh stewed leaves, yucky adjuncts and booze.

Pretty horrid. Perhaps my mistake was letting it warm up too much - I suppose it would be more tolerable if chilled. It looks quite nice, but the aroma/flavour leave much to be desired. Hints of adjuncts, booze and stewed cabbage abound. No hops or other flavours to mask the off-notes. Body is alright but it's overly fizzy. In short, a most unpleasant brew. My recommendation - give it a wide berth.
