quite bitter and dry. The champagne yeast has a clearly noticeable effect on the beer and I dont like it.

Boring. Quite nicely sweet, and golden and good-looking, but lack of character and taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Gold with fizzed white head. Lightly carbonated lager with a sweetish malty body, quite fresh in nature and an easy, lemony hop flavour along with a sweet pineapple note. Easy drinking and pretty decent for what it is.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like a standard lager. Golden in colour. Has a very flowery aroma. Slightly woody. Tastes like cereal. Very subtle aftertaste. Quite drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Let’s see, pale yellow, fizzy head swiftly dissolving to nothing, hmm... Nose has a bit of hops to it though, which is promising. Taste is pretty mellow, decent hops bitterness, some malty sweetness for the balance. Dry without being unpleasant, fairly smooth finish. It’s a lager, but not a bad one at all. I could rather enjoy this on a hot day.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, some caramel, light floral - tropical fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and floral fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and floral fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Watery lager - OK bitterness considering thin body. Lacks character and taste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden, very pale, watery-looking body with a small, white, short-lived head that leaves some lacing. Fairly strong aroma that is quite crisp, with notes of pale malts, citrus, caramel and faint hints of tropical fruits. In the moderate flavours the fruity notes are more of the generic kind, without any tropical notes. The taste is light to moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Not too bad.
