1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can shared at Leighton’s, as ’Breaker Strong Lager’, 4.8%, BB June 2016 from Jeffcock Road Stores, Wolverhampton. There’s something endearing about the dated 70s branding. Totally clear yellow, lightly sparkling, foamy white head. Aroma is airy, corn. Body is medium to light, a little foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is corny, soft malt, apple, soft finish. I would place this as below average for a macro-lager. It’s drinkable and inoffensive, corny and plain.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared in London - big thanks to Daniel. Pours perfectly clear gold with a tight, frothy pure white head. A little papery on the nose, some sugary dough, hay. Light sweet flavor with metallic bite, faint grass, hay, cereal, faint paper. Light bodied with average carbonation. Light
Y sweet on the finish, some vague impressions of citrus, dry pale bread, metal, tin, cereal, straw. A so so cheap pale lager.

Can thanks to filthy Dan. It pours beautiful clear rich gold with a thick white head. The nose is rich, sweet, oily, white bread, creaminess, toasted grain and cereal. The taste is crisp, creamy, white bread, grain, straw, doughy malt and dull toasted notes with a short finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Looks nice and good body. Simple. But chuggable.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml Can: out of date 9 days after opening. Poured into an old Schlossbrau stemmed tulip three times at home on 22nd Aug 2014. Golden, clear and bright, on top a full and deep white crown. Odourless and almost tasteless. Crisp and sharp in the mouth but lacks actual flavour. Refreshing and clean, a slight maltiness maybe, with a mild bitter finish. I had a can of this after working in the garden the other week and it quenched my thirst and satisfied my needs that day: on it’s ’review day’ however it was nowhere near as good or impressive.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml can picked up in the Potteries. A bog-standard Eurolager. Straw with a billowing white head; washed-out grassy hop aroma; soft cereal grain body with some grassy hops; and a alcoholic burn to finish, even though it’s only 4.8%. How do they do that?

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Carbonated golden lager with a large frothy head. Ordinary aroma and quite a weak texture which makes it easy to drink.
