1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
One of the worst pale lagers I’ve ever tried. Gassy, flat and acidic. Was it a beer?

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(my bottle - identical label as illustrated - claims 5% ABV) Clear gold; thick and fluffy yellow head, fed by heavy carbonation, but not very stable. Very grainy nose, and the same time sulphuric - and meant is H²S! This is "skunked", as you Americans call it, big time. Boring, light-sweet pilsener, some maize/corn. And if "hops can easily be distinguished" it must be by their utter absence. Watery texture, with a nearly slimy mouthfeel. Once gotten over the rotten eggs nose, this is "easily drinkable"? If you forget your retronasal perception, perhaps - with a good thorough cold?

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (BB 07/2004)
Typical lager outfit: yellow golden with foamy white head. Grassy aroma. Plain and simple with grassy hops and malty backbone.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clean and refreshing with light hop and very light malt aroma that reminds me of crackers. Everything about this is light and laid back. Not much sweetness or bitterness. It’s a decent drink that knows its place in life. No pretentions or ambitions. Finish is of a medly of floral hops. Cheap and acceptable.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Grainy maltiness with industrial alcohol aromas. Slightly sweet with a cleanish body. Tastes cheap.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Although the label on my bottle said "Premium Pils", this was the 5% export version, so I guess it belongs here. Premium, my arse. Although it just managed to muster a slight head when poured, there were no bubbles at all after that and the mouthfeel was horribly flat and dull. Mid gold colour. Vaguely malty aroma, but a bit skunky. Some bitterness in the mouth, but generally bland. Pretty poor stuff. 660ml bottle from Tesco.
