Draft: another one of those lower abv macro beers created for the UK market, I consider this one to be made exclusively for binge drinking, very bland, boring & forgettable euro pale lager

flying_pig (1010) - SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2014
275ml bottle from Morrison’s Supermarker, Glasgow:
Very light with some corn & skunk, there was some adjuncts as well & faint grassy hops. Some bitterness comes through but like the rest this is light as well, bordering on weak.
Light amber to golden, a 1cm bubbly white head that disappeared completely after 20 seconds.
Grassy hops & a light bitterness, there was faint skunk & a few lager type malts & adjuncts. A bland & weak tasting beer that didn’t taste great at all.
Light bodied with a grainy feel to it, particularly towards the end of the beer & some chewy patches throughout. The body was very light & watery with some faint bitterness & slightly above average carbonation.

A fairly poor beer from Beck’s, although to be honest I wasn’t really expecting much more for it in truth. The beer was far too weak & light which made it a drag to work my way down, it wasn’t even good for a macro pale lager either & it’s not one I’ll be picking up again.

edsspoon (537) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Can - yellow, malty and grassy. Watery and slightly bitter. Light body and high carbonation. I got it because it was cheap, didn’t really think much about it.

Draft at a London hotel. Had no other unrated choices so I made this one. About what I expected.

Clear yellow appearance, medium low head. Sweet, lightly hoppy, grassy aromas. Watery but refreshing. Average Pale Lager.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Keg : this is ok for just drinking fast and not thinking too much about it ! It has a kinda leafy hop flavour and dryness similar to proper/better German pils’.

OldGrowth (2759) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pint at O2 Arena. Mild aroma. Cereal and bread dough. Clean pale golden yellow color no head or lace. Sweet flavor. Light body, thin lifeless mouthfeel, Mild sweet finish. Wow that’s bad. But selection at O2 inside appears poor As all I could fin was this, Stela, Bud. And Strongbow cider.

evergreen0199 (2142) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at 02 Arena, Nth Greenwich, London. A light golden coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Vague hoppy, metallic aroma and taste. There was not much else available which is why I ended up supping this!

Quite an anemic looking lager with a chemical aroma. Tastes a bit like cardboard. Won't be having this again. Fodder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
