3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed this by the can many a time - mostly recently at the Covent Garden Odeon, last night. This beer pours pale yellow (I’ve poured it before!) and has a quick, foamy white head. The nose is crispy cereal, light metal, pale bread. Light-medium sweet flavor with with lightly biscuity pale bread, some simple sugars, mild grain husk bitterness, some hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty crisp to finish with some further bitter grain notes, cereal and biscuits. Solid available-everywhere pale lager.

Sampled from a 275ml bottle. Typical boring lager. Some malt taste, but very light. Also some grassy bitterness, but this beer is very standard and boring. Worth getting a proper German-made Pils if you are looking for this style.

330ml bottle complimentary in the boardroom at Sutton Coldfield Town FC - Yellow, fizzy, clear with a nice white head. A bit syrupy in the mouthfeel, but that actually gives a boring lager something a bit extra. Not much, but it is there.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very nice lager with a defined but balanced taste.
This was a ’passage of rites’ drink and was much more popular when I was a teenager.
It’s a shame it doesn’t seem to be so popular in the UK now.
On the plus side this also keeps the price down.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle bought at an international food store in Eastbourne, Seaside Road ( luckily it was available there as a single and not as a fourpack like at Tesco’’s). Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of mild hops, grains, bread, grass, citrus and basement. Boring and unexciting finish. Refreshing and drinkable though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought in a shop in Eastbourne and shared with McTapps. Compared with the german Holsten this one is quite dull and sweetish missing that classic bitter Holstern aftertaste. Some corn mixed up with a bit of malt and easy going finish. Not bad at all.

Can. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, light corn, and faint spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
