From a 500ml bottle on 1/10/2013. pours a cloudy straw colour with a small head. Has a slightly odd pungest, yeasty aroma with some citrus notes. Flavour wise, it’s a touch tart with lemon, a fair bit of apple cider, and a bit of cordial in the mix. Has a fullish body and modest carbonation. I’m not sure why this has been classified as a pale lager, though I’m not sure what it’s meant to be. Just kinda weird, and doesn’t really work for me.

Disappointingly ’commercial’ might be the best way to describe this beer. Some faint applause for the lowish ABV but otherwise a beer that shows boring Super Dry like tendencies. Some orange peel on the nose but otherwise very bland and slightly sticky with a sweet corny finish. Might appeal to the rank and file.
