3.18/5 rDev +16.5%
Brought back to me by my brother. Many thanks. (.5 liter can)
Web site notes: "...is a high quality beer, with a light red glare. An exclusive beer that looks great on the dinner table and has a very refreshing taste."
Aroma is dominated by a rather sweet malt. Watery quality to aroma. Not really picking up any hops. Sweetness decreases in time, but still malt character.
It is an atractive red color (with gold and orange in the light). Water clear. Pours with a big head, but it leaves pretty quickly.
Hops are more present in flavor. Mild to moderate bitterness and some dryness. Very quick sweetness up front, otherwise malt is largely background. No particular roast, toast or caramel to speak of.
Fullness in carbonation, but it is fairly soft. Slight warmth in stomach (but that could be from an empty stomach). Thin, but not watery.
This is pretty much as advertised. It's not bad. Hops dominate the flavor. Easy drinker, that would probably do well with some foods and snacks.

2.33/5 rDev -14.7%
A: Pours golden red-brown with a 1 finger head and moderate lacing. Everything goes away within minutes.
S: Smells nice and sweet but has an interesting 'unatural' smell.
T: Very uneventful. Maybe has two flavor tones? Blah.
M: Very shocking to the mouth, especially the first drink. Make that every drink. Super carbonated.
D: With such an uncomfortable mouthfeel and not taste to make it worth drinking, I must say it is not going to be my beer of preference.

2.4/5 rDev -12.1%
A: Pour is pale amber with a rather small white creamy head. Slow dissipation leaves decent lacings.
S: Sweet malt with a hint of corn. Grassy and a bit grainy. Where are the hops???
T: Sweet caramell malt, slightly roasted. Bitter hops and some faint citric notes. Actually pretty nice flavours, but man they are mild.
M: Long bitter aftertaste. Body is light and carbonation medium.
O: Well, weak smell, weak taste (eventhough there was nice parts in the taste) and rather watery. The only good thing was the aftertaste. Since I didn't pay that much for this can - you'll get what you pay for!
