3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a pretty good pale lager that is fairly full-bodied for what it is. It is golden with a fairly big off-white head that steadily shrinks to a thin lasting wispy top. The aroma is sweetly flowery grain and hops with hints of pine and sulphur - just slightly more European than American smelling. The taste is grain with lightly herbal hops, mostly on the sweeter side with a light bitterness. There is a light mineral water quality that becomes noticeable after a few sips. The taste is like a fuller bodied, more flavourful basic American lager more than a European one. It’s basic, but good and very drinkable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle, served chilled. Clean pale golden body with foamy white head. Cereal aroma, not much happening. Moderate carbonation, reasonably full bodied and easy. Particularly corny malt body, sugary but not sweet, nothing particularly appealing about it, very little bitterness or hop character.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow appearance with a small white head and moderate lacing. Grassy, grainy aroma. Sweet up front and in the finish, but the underlying vegetal flavor, especially in the aftertaste, emaciated the palate. I’ll pass if offered again.
