1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Don’t like it. These cans used to be bigger (500 ml), sold individually, and taste a whole lot better. Then a few of months ago the smaller 440 ml cans came in and the taste seemed to nose-dive; the difference is like chalk and cheese. Indeed, so bad was the taste I considered taking it back until I re-tested several different batches each with the same problem.
This beer tastes flat, with a sickly after-taste that quickly turns you off consuming more. What happened, LIDL? The previous, larger cans were fantastic but this.. you’ve definitely changed something here, something I now avoid like the plague. Whatever you’ve done to it, this beer is now ruined for me :(

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Dark yellow golden, straw colored and clear with a full white rocky head. Thats the best part of the beer. Slight aroma of hey and bread in the nose but not much. Light sweet taste that’s turns into a turning slight bitter finish, however there is not much taste anyway. Flavor is slightly malty with hint of bread. Flavor or aroma of hop is missing completely. The body is light to medium with medium carbonation and somewhat watery. Not much aftertaste either, but at least not unpleasent. I think I have already written too much about this beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Lidl, 70 British pence worth of lager. BB Aug 2016, 3.9%. Had no intention of sharing this but, since it was in my bag anyway… Cold courtesy of Paul’s freezer. It’s a hazy yellow, lightly sparkling, small bubbly white head. Aroma is cornflakes, paper. Body is medium to light, low carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is pretty much exactly as the aroma. I wasn’t expecting much, and I didn’t get much. So not disappointed.
