2.74/5  rDev +9.6%

Color of a whiskey, and similarly with no head whatsoever (it was very close to maturity date).
Sweet malty aroma with notes of caramel.
Flavor of sugar, minerals, malt and hints of and pears. Maybe some herbal hops, but almost no bitterness.
Light body with low carbonation.
Although it is not an adjunct lager, it's kind of a concentrated version of one, but still keeping use of hops on the low side.

2.17/5  rDev -13.2%

A: Yellow colour, small but pretty stable head with some lacing.

S: typical bad smell that some belgian lagers have every now and then, for me it has something of a cannabis smell

T: Has something medicinal, a hint of corn sweet

M/D Under carbonated, because of the lack of real taste alcohol too noticeable

reminds me a bit of corona, and that's just a bad thing

2.6/5  rDev +4%

This is the standard yellow-golden colored lager. A white head of average size sits atop the liquid. Not much in the smell. The smell is mostly DMS with a little sugar and pale malt. No real hop aroma at all. The flavor is incredibly sweet, almost cloying. Some malt flavors, but a lot of sugar. Finishes sweet, with a little fruit (pear?). Not really a clean beer. Medium in body and more drinkable than the taste would indicate...the sweetness grows on you a little. All in all, though, this isn't a good brew.
