2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, bought @ Tesco, Earls Court, London.
Pours a dark, lightly pale golden. A creamy white head with good duration and light lacing. Aroma is a bit perfume-like, some yeast and subdued hops. Fine mouthfeel. Weak flavour, though. Lightly sweet with a heavy yeast note amongst a biscuity maltiness and a slight metal off-flavour.

The label on the bottled proclaims something about a "citrus attack" but I found this beer yeasty and weirdly vegetal more than bitter or sweet. This isn’t one I’d recommend; lots of brewers are doing this sort of blond beer much better.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks lagered. Light amber, not much aroma to speak of really. a sweet chewy herby honey orange mouthful thats nice at first but nothing comes in afterwards to wash it away. a good ABV. It would not be good with less. In hindsight I may have had it too cold but i doubt i’d give it another chance.
Many reviewers from down under seam to be getting stale tasting bottles. I didn’t have any problems like that.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells and tastes like a bog standard lager (in my book) and this sample is looking a little tired despite the Feb 2008 BB. Pours a treat ; big ice cream sunday head, fluffy and thick. Mainstream lager notes to smell and they lack appeal. Flavours are thin and tired; industrial beer malts and low bitterness. Really quite crappy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. First drink of the night, a rare sober rate. Slightly cloudy gold colour, looks apetising but first beer and all that. Head went very quickly.Reasonable and drinkable but a bit wooly. Boring is way too harsh, a decent drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. (RBNAG 07) A clear, yellow-golden beer topped by a decent, off-white head. Nice fruity hoppiness in the aroma, along with pale malts. The flavor is fruity, with a malty sweetness to balance the bitterness. The fruityness and bitterness is present in the finish as well, but slightly subdued. Medium body. A pleasant, quaffable beer.
