UPDATED: FEB 20, 2009 Bottle, thanks Geir Ove!
Butter aroma, some baking soda.
Mostly water, a bit salty, tastes like it was brewed on brackish water. I’d rather have a glass of Madeira, please!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A cookie-cutter European pale lager. Must stop buying those. Uninspiring virtually headless appearance. Stale aroma of cardboard and lemon rind. Stop me if you’ve smelled that before. Taste: sweetish malts, corn and a grainy, faintly astringent finish. Poor-quality metallic hop. Could almost be Pride of Ringwood. Good to know it has a European cousin. (33cl bottle from Petersham Liquor Mart. BB March 09)
