3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Morrisons, with a quid off. Clear, pale gold. Film of white head. Very sweet, lemony, grainy malts. Bit of a Belgian yeast thing going on. Taste is sweet, and light, spicy dry. Finishes light dry. Overall itís an oddity, and not a beer Iíd necessarily have again. Ok at best.

Large bottle from Tesco. Golden, lightly gassy, bubbly head. Malty, German hop aroma. Crisp, bitter and dry. Not bad for a strong lager. Better than standard Cobra.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely mix of malt barley and hops. Strong too at 7.5%. Easy on the palate and a nice bottled version of the brand. Recommended.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lacy head that doesnít stick around. Hazy colour. Mainly cereal, rice with a barley wine booze finish. Doesnít show many bubbles but the fizz is aggressive and harsh in the mouth and at odds with its creaminess and slick oil palate. Not all that pleasant. Can feel the ethanol kicking in already and shame to waste so much of this eveningís drinking capacity on the rest of this oversized bottle of plonk.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Nose is cereal, grassy, some fruity esters, the dreaded pilsner cardboard. Taste is cereal, some soft fruit notes, peach, marzipan, a creamy note which I guess was the rice, the a short herbal and grain finish. Mouthfeel is lager horrible.
Bought because it was cheap in Morrisons, I wasnít expecting it to have been brewed in Palm. In fairness itís much more interesting than the souped up macro-lager I expected, but is still not actually nice in a meaningful sense.
