1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A pale lager with little carbonation. The taste is sweet and the smell is off-putting after a while. Not a pleasant experience even on a hot day and in need of a cold drink.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Decent enough pale gold colour and relatively strong for a British brewed lager, but that’s where the complements end. There’s a hint of malt in the aroma but, otherwise it all comes over as artificial, chemical and metallic. Dull mouthfeel. Drinkable, but not good. Not the worst I’ve had either. Keg at the Brewery Tap (the old Courage brewery tap, now run by Sam Smiths), Southwark.

Had this in London a very long while ago. Really pale yellow in appearance, sweet malty, with little else to it. Not really German in flavour, but then again, it is brewed in England.

Tap, Cittie of Yorke, London. Some water with a squeeze of apple juice is the total sum of the aroma. A stronger version of the lager. Chemical and metallic flavour is stronger and thus more unpleasant. Slightly better mouthfeeel. But all in all this is a glass of garbage.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light dusty lager nose, straw color, low tight head. Clean crisp malt with a hint of citrus. Round corners. An average German-style pils that holds its own. Still, nothing special here.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught, at the Cittie of Yorke, London.
Thin, anaemic looking, golden body with no head. Spot the difference between this and the regular Ayingerberau. This one is just for those that want to get pissed marginally quicker.

Keg at the "World’s Funniest Pub", The Anchor Tap, Tower Bridge, London..
Odd attempt at a lager, not at all authentic. Flat & barely malty.
Sampled on the Ratebeer London Meetup & Pub Crawl, December 2004. With Silktork, Chris_o, & Kook.
