Bottle had at Harrods. Pretty average lager. It is very clean so I’ll give it that. Unfortunately was the only beer on the list

Pours a clear and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and DMS. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a beer below average.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
From BA (Oct 2007): Bought as a present by my wife earlier this year, best before 1st Nov 2007, at a cost of £2.95 for a 450 ml flip-top bottle. Anyway this bottle was poured into one of my Veltins Pilsner glasses (two and a half times). The first pour, straight after the bottle was popped gave a two inch white head and a light golden, slightly hazy body with plenty of carbonisation. the head started to fall away as soon as I had a sip, but it didn’t go completely. The second and third pour did the same, so plenty of condition within the beer. The aroma wasn’t too bad for a lager, I have trouble finding any nose with this type of beer, but this one had a good beery yeastiness to it. The taste was better than a few lagers I’ve had. If in fact it is to be classed as an American Macro, then it is a bloody good one. I think this is actually a fine German Pilsner badged for the UK market as a lager. The flavours of light hops and malts came through, as did the yeast. As with all lagers, the lightness prevents a great or amazing mouthfeel, but this had enough about it for me to enjoy. No metalic or tinny aftertaste, no huge dryness, just a pleasant feel to it. An OK beer, the price (well it is Harrods) is a bit over the top, I wonder if it is available under a different name in Germany at a more realistic price?

worldbeertaste (1599) - AUSTRIA - MAR 18, 2012
Golden orange look with a lasting thin light head. Light sweet fruity, and honey smell some straw. Grainy Brief taste of fruit juice, straw and hop bitter finish. Some tosted roast with a dry earthy finish. Honey sweetness? A strage lager but drinkable.

wheaty, clear, plain junk lager. The harrods on the label doesn’t make it any better.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Flip-top bottle from Harrods. Purs light amber gold with a 3 finger whitish head. Light malty aroma with a little grassy hop. Flavor is a bit different. Hop seems more fruity than grassy. The malt is quite tasty, though a bit bready. Tastes much better than I would have thought, considering it’s a pale lager. It’s a nice drink.

flying_pig (898) - SCOTLAND - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle (500ml): Amber with an off white head with bubbles that lasts not to bad although shrinks slightly. Hops, malts & grain all detected here with a faint pine smell as well. Has an oak/wood like taste with a strange bitter aftertaste that is quite dry. There is also some hops apparent here & some malts. Light with decent carbonation although it wasn’t the smoothest of beers. A okay lager that just wasn’t to my taste. I enjoyed it to an extent although wouldn’t drink it again. (/)
