Bottle at The Black Swan, Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, bready malts and subtle grassy hops. Taste of grain, bready malts, slight cardboard and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, bready malt bitterness in the finish. A bog standard malty lager, decent body, that’s all.

Somewhat more solif wheat/gold color with medium white foam. Aromas of malt, green peas, wheat, straw and quite generic. Palate, Lightish body with oily, thin texture and turns into waterish taste quickly leaving mild wheat aftertaste. Taste wise it is bit try and yeasty/malty on the tongue, taste of wheat. Overall, generic nothing special lager (meh).

Bottle. Golden and gassy. This isn’t particularly impressive. It just tastes adjuncty. I can’t recommend this, its poor.

500ml can from the local offy. Clear yellow. Decent head. All you’d expect it to be, aroma, and taste wise. Pounded it down, whilst the missus turned her nose up, telling me how much it stinks. So I did the same with the next can. Probably won’t bother with a third, though...

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
English lager with Danish pedigree apparently, can from some nightshop in London. Medium thick, off-white, irregular head initially sustained by fiery fizz rising up through a deep ’old gold’ colour, clear beer, but dissipating after a relatively short while to almost nothing. Aroma of dry and sourish grains, apple peel, old cookies, iron, bread crust, touch of grass and something faintly chemical (glue). Expectedly spritzy in the mouth, grainy sourishness paired with a light bready, even somewhat biscuity barley sweetishness, thin body with a metallic ’zing’, late and brief, shy grassy hop bitterishness showing up somewhere in the finish but fading quickly, leaving the ending a bit watery, with a certain degree of chemical wryness, fortunately only mildly so. Bland, but I had worse lagers than this and it does qualify as a premium lager due to its somewhat higher barley malt content, visibly, aromatically and taste-wise.
