2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught @ The East India Arms. Typical fizzy yellow beer, golden with a fluffy white head. Grainy and slightly sweet with mild hops. Nothing special but served it’s purpose and was better than oranje-bum on the day.

Keg at the Kings Head, Hythe. A fairly basic lager; gold with a white head and light carbonation; rather sour aroma; fruity and creamy in the mouth, but quite acidic; and a predominantly acidic finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Quite good, fairly nice for a lager. Light amber in colour and fairly carbonated. In the same mould as Artois, but more refreshing. Probably in my top 510 beers of all time!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned. A pale gold coloured lager with a thin off-white coloured head. The aroma is skunky and corny with some buttery nasty unpleasantness. The taste is sickly and corny. A thin lager lackiing quality.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly confused. The keg version is a refreshing, thinly headed sweet malty lager bearing little resemblance to its German namesake. The 4.7% bottle I have in my hand has an unappealingly rusty nose, but pours with a well-retained snowy white head and has a slightly smoky malty graininess that is not at all unpleasant. If your (generic UK draught lager) options are limited at the bar, you could do much worse.
