5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The best darn lager in the world - sadly being phased out by Sam Smiths. 5 pints of it has the effect of 8 pints of Stella, with an acid tab dropped in the first pint. Have loved it for approximately 12 years. Amazing birthday drink. Will be missed.

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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I believe this must have been retired by now? Anyway, as of 2005, was acceptable, but over-metallic and acidic. A good strong beer for those who woul like to feel the effects, though. Drinkable in quantity.

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.

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.

1.6 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.
