2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Can as a gift from Malta:
Sweet and quite basic with a lot of corn and adjuncts as well as a slightly astringent aroma with some cereal and wheat as well. Pretty much standard for a basic macro lager and it’s not great sadly.
Clear and light straw colour but is topped with a huge, very foamy looking head that is bone white and holds better than you would expected. It does gradually reduce and leaves a slight trace of lacing on the glass too.
Lager malts and some adjuncts kick things off but the taste is a little bland with some cereal and a hint of grassy hops. A few malts make an appearance and there is a touch bitterness too.
Smooth and fairly crisp too with a light, almost watery body and a very clean taste. The finish has some bitterness and doesn’t seem overly dry.
What I expected from this one really, a fairly bland but certainly drinkable pale lager. There is nothing much in the way of taste or aroma to this one and it’s pretty inoffensive.

bottle. Poured clear very pale yellow with a light bleach white head. Aroma of light malt and slight sulfur. Light creamy texture, crisp astringent finish. Flavour of hay and some citrus. Pretty bland, not as much hop detected as it boasts.

The Maltese lager. Very light pour and light in taste. A perfect beer after a long day of diving...

On tap (0.5 l) in Sliema, Malta... Clear light golden color, average head... Odd hop aroma, nothing special... Uninspiring hop ending...
