2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold, thin head. High carbonation. Nose is Reminiscent of the first grass clippings of spring. Starts with a bland bitterness finishes a bit sweet, not a lot going on. I have a fonder likening for this, compared to other industrial swills (the Irish clearly make a better industrial swill than us Canadians). I would certainly drink it again, but have a hard time giving it anything higher in the scores.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sandy-colored beer with a fizzy white head of varying sized bubbles. Weak musky nose of generic-smelling hops and not much else. Flavor has a slight bitterness offset by a crisp effervescence, which is really this beer’s best quality. Quaffable on a hot day, but standard and totally unexciting.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden yellow pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is cardboard and wet hay. Tastes like a more flavorful version of the American massed produced crap. Corn, malts, and hay. It’s not terrible, but it definitely tasted better when I had it in Ireland. I should have probably left the experience as just a memory. I’ll take it over a Heineken.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hey guys, it's imported! Transparent golden color; fizzy white bubbles all around. Smells like corn and disappointment, and the taste follows suit.
Palate is about right, tbh. Tastes boring and sweet and corny, absolutely nothing redeeming here. Do people actually like this?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear light gold with a thin head that falls fast but tired to leave some lace. Sparkling with bubbles rising upwards. Nose is light grain sweetness and fresh cut hay. A bit of floral but not too much and maybe a small whisper of the lemon peel. Sweet grains make up most of the palate and the hops offer a gentle bit of sweet grass. Some tart and weak lemon in the background. Drinks crisp and clean with a bit of bite on the tongue from carbonation and nice drying to the finish.

Aroma is light malt, slight gum and adjuncts. Very light color, crystal clear. Flavor is very light with some malt and yeast. Light body, easy drinking.

Crisp and sharp at first, malt only arrives after beer warms, opens up and goes flatter.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pint (draught) from the Gall Bog Bar near Banbridge, County Down.
Probably one of the lightest mainstream lagers available in Ireland, fairly small frothy head. Tastes as light as it looks, a bit of bitterness but not very much of anything else, slightly malty. Available on tap, in bottles and in cans in Northern Ireland - and occasionally as Harp Ice Cold, which I’d probably recommend if you insist on drinking Harp.
Drinkable but excessively bland, on the lower side of average.

Ok, not the best beer in the world to be sure, and I don’t like Lagers to begin with unless there is something interesting about it. Nothing interesting here, bland watered down lager that has a "fat" mouthfeel to it. Gave me a headache.
