Smells a bit stale even when itís fresh from tap. Tastes a bit weak but refreshing.

This beer lacks any real flavour, even for a lager. After my first couple of sips, I thought that the bar had watered it down. Iíve tried it again since - no difference. I prefer lagers with a little more body.

Re-rated. Iím not sure quite sure what I ever saw in this beer. It has to have changed somewhat dramatically, or I have...and seeing as how Iím one of those who likes almost everything...I dunno. Either way, this is a very non-special lager. Totally ordinary in basically every way. Oh, well. Thereís lots more to choose from...

A nice and crisp lager. Did I say crisp?

Eh. Some decent bitterness, but no maltiness or tasty hops to speak of. Too mellow and thin, not enough character or body. Largely forgettable, but not actively bad.

Lightly sour. But fresh and just a bit better lager.

My favorite pub beer. Out of the tap, it canít be beat. However, it tastes much different out of the bottle - not as good by far. Stick to the keg version, and youíll find a nice mellow taste that goes down, at times, way too smoothly.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 A decent beer with an average body & mouthfeel, nothing too special, it's drinkable
