CERES

This has somehow become one of the standard stock beers for bars across Europe that don't care about beer. It usually shares fridge space with Beck's, Heineken, Bud, Corona etc and the mediocrity rubs off.

It's from the mega brewers at Royal Unibrew in Denmark, so the assumption is that it probably gets flung in as part of a distribution package. And that its recipe is designed to get visiting Swedes drunk in a hurry so they can bugger off back to Malmo before dinner.

It smells a bit of chemicals, like after you've given the kitchen or bathroom a thorough scrub. At first that's how it tastes, but you grow to expect that at 7+ percent. 

Look, you could drink it, even finish it, but it's by no means an average beer, much less a great beer. There are few hints of malt or cereal or any other natural, organic tones that the great ones boast.

It goes down, eventually, but tastes somehow synthetic. B'ah.
