1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not really expecting to enjoy (or finish) this one, but it’s a storied beer. Can, very cold. Gold with a white head that never quite gives up. Aroma is booze, hay, overripe grapes, some lemon and herbs, hints of firelighters. Taste is not so bad. It’s very sweet but underneath the alcohol is grainy malt that’s around clean enough and some herbs. Bitterness is crude but not that strong and keeps it just about sippable. There is a lot worse of this sort of thing.

una strong lager molto commerciale. al naso si sentono solo i malti e il caramello, al gusto ancora troppo maltata e dolce con leggero amaro finale. l’alcol la fa da padrone e la rende molto disequilibrata

Cold 440ml can, 9%, BB Oct 2015. Drank this on a bench in my local park, whilst shouting at some pigeons. Clear golden orange, sparkling, small foamy white head doesn’t endure. Aroma is lager malt, sweet caramel, light boiled carrots, that cold minty alcoholic smell that comes off someone when they’re drunk. Body is medium, quite foamy, spritzy carbonation. Taste is sweet, sharp, dry and alcoholic. Paper and sake. Finishes boozy. Has a sort-of Belgian yeastiness to it too.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Una buona lager, certamente non complessa a livello olfattivo. Dolciastra , con il miele che emerge. Unnpo’ di crosta di pane, e nient’altro. Buona birra, piacevole. Una strong lager, ok.

Esattamente uguale alla Carlsberg Lager soltanto che ha 4 gradi in più che nel finale danno una nota davvero pessima

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from local offie to celebrate my 2nd RB birthday. Well if it’s good enough for old Churchill it should be good enough for me.....no it’s shit. The looks are the only area it holds it’s own, golden amber with a medium head. Aroma of sweetish malts. Taste is sweetish malts, lots of tin and a rancid astringency that makes your tongue recoil. Slightly syrupy body. Awful.
