2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml can. A clear golden colour with a lasting, creamy-frothy white head leaving a soapy lace. Aromas of grain, sweet-accented pale malt, citrus and grassy hop. Similar to taste with a firm, light- to mid-weight palate and a soft to moderate length and intensity hop bitterness to finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml can at home in Richmond as ’HOBO Beer + Co Craft Czech Lager’, 5.1%, BB Oct 2016. Celebration beer. Translucent orange, sparkling, foamy cratered beige head. Aroma is wet cardboard, soapy water, cereal grains, papier mache. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a little frothy. Taste has more cardboard, tangy metalics, corn, thin malts. It may be made in a more interesting way than most modern pale lagers, but the end result is more of the same. Grew on me.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Something odd about declaring yourself a craft beer... anywho, pale straw pour with slight foamy head. Some reasonably sharp hops here, fairly clean tasting, gets a little acidic at the end. Hardly a winner, but not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Prince Regent, Cambridge.weirs heavy yellow-orange colour. Goes flat quite quickly. Peach, citrus, cereal in the aroma. Taste isn’t bad: sweet and malty without much of the sickly flavour that comes with mid strength lagers. Ok, the taste is little sickly. But all and all refreshing and not as bad as most lagers. Not that I’ll be having another one.
