4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a small, white foam head. Some lightly sugary pale malts in the nose, subtle dough, straw. Light sweet flavor, mellow straw bitterness, a bit more light dough malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, clean finish with a very restrained character overall, just nips of dry straw and faint, white sugar and dough. Quite a nice little pale lager, this. Exactly what I want after a strenuous gym session.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
300ml. Eponymous with a slim fine collar. Lemon, almond, slight pine aroma...beneath the regurgitated buck’s fizz. Thick, snot-laden palate with notes of glue, lemon and card spread with dog food. Not a personal favourite.
