500ml bottle from Tesco. 4.8% Pale gold, lasting white head. Touch of cardboard on aroma, touch of lmeony hop. Some Turkish Delight flavour, not much depth of flavour or feel in mouth, bit metallic on end, but by a long way, not the worst pale lager I’ve had. It’s alright, bit empty in the middle, but fine.

Draught, a dozen liters or so. Has a clean malty profile and an underlined bitterness. It’s refreshing and no evident flaws detected, which makes it a nice beach quaffer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold, white head. Thought initially the aroma was quite floral, but subsequently decided it was like emulsion paint. Fizzy but quite tasty after that. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would, however this does not constitute an endorsement of the product...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium white coarse shiny head does not last. Yellow body. Fruity, rubbery aroma, kind of catty, very unusual. Dry, sharpish fruity, catty, rubbery aroma with paper and hop notes. I bet some of this is sulphur. Aftertaste is the same, except perhaps slightly more watery. Mouthfeel is sharpish and medium-bodied. This is very unusual, and probably does not appeal to many people, but I kind of liked it for some reason. (0.5l can from Star supermarket, Brasov, Romania.)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 500 ml at home, into a Guinness pint, ABV 5%
Golden yellow colour on the body, light activity in it. Almost two fingers of white head, with okay retention, leaving light lacing behind.
Aroma is malts, dirty hay that could be worse, apple juice.
Not much of a taste, mildly sweet, a bit of apple juice, malts.
Thin mouthfeel, a bit low on the carbonation.
Overall boring, but it was okay after a long day at work.
