1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Convenient twist top releases to reveal a wheaty, hay-bale, mineral-like nose with a hint of dried mown grass. In the glass it settles an uninspiring straw gold, bright and missing a vital on top. Gassy, soapy, light bodied yet it leaves a foreign lather upon the tongue. Dusty old hops in back, low malt tones mid-palate with a touch of apple and pear, and a quashed almost incoherent bitterness to finish. No length of flavour. Pretty one dimensional and flawed really!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark golden colour with a white head. Aroma of fruit, berries and some malt and toffee. Taste of berries, elderflower and light toffee. And flowery hops. A little earthy. Medium body.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle. Soft white head , very pale and clear with wet straw aromas. Thin and tasteless in the mouth. There is nothing that makes this pale lager stand out from the thousands of other pale lagers out there.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Pale , sparkling golden colour, looked promising in the glass, extreme let down from there on. Watery, boring. Epic fail.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale golden color with a small head with no real lacing. Mild aroma of malt sweetness, grain and bit of citrus in the background. Taste has a mild malt sweetness and grain. Weeak bitterness and a bland finish. Light body, smooth and boring. A non-offensive pale lager in an ocean of Pale Lager.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is another boring pale lager that is the same as all the rest. Just another grab at the craft beer market by CUB. The numbers in the ratings speak for themselves, try at your own peril!
