2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
June, 2003 5.5% abv. Yellow can. Supported in 2003 by a TV ad campaign of Who’s The Daddy? Stewed hops with a vague malt base that gets nastier as you drink. No matter how many times I drink this, it doesn’t get any better. [1.2]
Dec, 2012 500ml yellow can. 5%. A clean and drinkable lager. Moderate sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Watery texture. [2.3]

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Jan 2007: Small brown 275ml bottle, 5.0%, brewed somewhere within the European Union for ’Carlsberg’.
Looked good, crisp, clear, golden yellow with a head that was whiter than white (as the Daz adverts used to say).
Do lagers smell of anything really? No, this one doesn’t either. Just a beery, yeasty, hoppy, malty, weak mix.
Fairly dry in taste, I drank this while making a Beef Lasagne, this is a kitchen drink, not for serious supping. Can’t get excited about it, but it is not bad enough to slag off, all in all, a typical European fizzy lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the Lochview Motel. Pours lemon with some head. The nose is mostly pale malt - like porridge oats in a way. The taste has more of the pale malt but with a citrus zing on the end. The palate has a light body, with a creamier than expected texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall, this was better to go back to than I expected.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottle at the Hook & Tackle, Reading] 275ml bottle with yellow label at 5% ABV. 20 years ago, all UK pubs seemed to sell this, but now you rarely see it. I vaguely remembered it being one of the better mass-market lagers at the time. So... how does it taste nowadays? Well.. pours the usual gold with a small white head; soft carbonation. Slight sweet, grassy aroma. Dominant flavour is honey; there’s a slight bitterness in a muted, leafy finish, and an oddly cloying coating is left inside your mouth. It’s certainly a little different to the other mass-market lagers in that it actually has something of a distinctive flavour and character. It’s probably this fact that it’s not crisp and clean (ie not tasteless), combined with the dated-looking packaging, that has caused this lager to decline in popularity. For my part, I thought it was OK as lagers go, but with the sweetnes and cloying mouthfeel I’m not sure I would have wanted to drink much more of it.

I am pretty sure it was in a yellow can? Not sure when it had a silver can or am I reviewing the wrong beer. Anyhow, nasty aftertaste and generally nasty taste in general. crap lager.
