2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Old Stand, Mullingar  4.2% bottle
Golden blonde, slight haze, thin white head, slight lacing
Aroma - almost noting, slight pale malt, but no nasty stuff
Taste - sweet pale malt,soft cereal, slight bitter hop, touch of honey, mainly light pale sweet malt, very little hops, not much going on
Palate - soft carb, light body, fairly sweet. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Very clean, soft, pale malt lager, not much hop, easy going, no metallic crap or chemical tasting junk in here - as a simple lager it’s not bad at all, considerably better than the usual macro lager shite

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
As Tom Crean’s Lager. Simplistic pilsner malts, as expected, with some light herbal notes perhaps. Pleasant surprise they actually list the hop variety (Saaz) on the can, but that doesn’t change the generic appeal. The taste is bubbly and bland, perhaps the lightest of acidity over your standard European mass lager. (33cl can on board of Aer Lingus flight to New York)

Not much to this. Bread, malts, apples. Flavour is cider notes but not much else to it. It not great really.
