2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
28th September 2012: dodgy lager/pilsner tasting (at home). Blue 500ml can (no mention of Export on it) of GALAHAD Premium lager (3.9%): best before 02/2013. poured (three times) into my lovely old DAB mini-tankard.
Golden, bright and light: it looked every inch a lager/pilsner, even down to the typical disappearing head of pure white bubbles that turn into a collar and wisp before your fist sip.
No real smell, some grainy traces maybe but otherwise odourless: gets my standard 3 score for a non-smelling lager/pilsner.
The taste was crisp and semi-sweet: a long way from good, but also a long way from being bad. This is just a cheap supermarket brew (Aldi) and if treated as such doesn’t disappoint.

Upon opening my can, I was hit by an EXTREMELY unpleasant smell, the lager tastes, watery? and there isn’t really any distinctive flavouring. Can looks neat though.

This might be the best beer I have ever had. It is the closest thing to urine that I have ever had. Absolutely SOLID FOUNDATIONS. Turned Ed and Matt gay!

I won’t lie I’m a Galahad man. Always was always will be. The aroma of Galahad makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Its appearance isn’t perfect. Light gold and losses its head quite fast. But its taste and palatability are second to none. Can’t beat a cold wednesday afternoon sittin down watching Batman Begins or The Hangover with 12 tins of galahad tucked in beside me. My idea of paradise. As Little Tommy Browne Hawaii would sing"Gala, Gala, Galahad"(Played to the music of Robbie Williams song Paradise).

Clear golden, flat headed supermarket lager. It has a very sweet taste and aroma to match.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cans bought at Aldi UK. Aroma of citrus fruits, colour is golden. Strong taste of German Pilsener; citrus fruits, refreshing with a medium-balanced bitterness. Okay, but nothing too good.

Can from Aldi. Pours in golden with huge and stable head. Simple aroma, bit grainy, maybe some malt. Taste is alright. A simple and watery lager. Could be Carling or whatever. Drinkable.

440ml can. Pale straw colour, white head; aroma of damp straw; thin, sweet and grainy. A marginal improvement on tap water.

The only unrated beer I could find (or was willing to pay for) within a 1hr striking distance of my house this evening in preparation for the Portugal Vs Spain semi. 500ml can. Wet, gold, thin head. Meaty, vegetable stock, rotting hay aroma. Flavour soluble painkillers, the back of stamps, citronella wax gnawed off an envelope. Somebody else should be paying me to drink this shit. Should have stayed at home and had an Orval.
