Bottle from Harrods cons 2014-07-15 wee hotel outside Stanstead I asked the guy at Harrods why the didnít have moore beers in stock then the other 3 variants. But he claimed that there was a risk the beer might get old - and customers wouldnít purchase "olz beer" AR: bready, roasted malt AP: amber, frothy semi transparent white head F: bready, wee citrus, smooth

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 (4924) - 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 didnít go completely. The second and third pour did the same, so plenty of condition within the beer. The aroma wasnít 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 Iíve 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?

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 doesnít make it any better.

bhensonb (12449) - 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 itís a pale lager. Itís a nice drink.
