1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light golden color with a white head. The taste is a thin grassy and earthy body. Watery and boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 Pours a light yellow color. Has a musty, skunky aroma. Seems highly carbonated. Flavor is watery and a little skunky. Very boring brew.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, in Geneva.
Yellow with white head. Aroma and flavor of malt and hops with a fine bitter finish. Well-balanced.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Clear golden colour. Frothy head that wasn’t too tough. Non-noxious aroma is always a good thing. Very smooth..could it be nitro or just the beer itself? Mediocre and inoffensive.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. I have to say I was suprised to see this beer rated so low en masse when I got around to rating it. I didn’t like the beer all that much myself, especially the thin palate, but found some characteristics to redeem it. The nose is grassy and grainy, like a lager should. Nothing in the flavor suggested the commercial faux pas of the macros (chemical flavors, acidity, sour aftertaste). In fact, I discovered some caramel, bready flavors with the neverending carbonation. My bias against lagers holds this one down, though.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. eh... golden piss lager color...small head, ok lacing, skunky (in a good way) typical lager taste. All the Essex lads love this lager but hey I’m just not a lager guy. Plus this brew kinda sucks. No offense to you rude bhoys out there at the Red Lion in Romford.

Here in Belgium , this beer tries to compete with the likes of Tuborg and Carlsberg, but doesn’t get anywhere near.
It’s not bad, but there are a lot of other and better beers around.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A decent pale lager. Big, persistent white head on top of a pale yellow beer. Decent biscuit taste with no bitterness, but no crappy cardboard flavour either. There’s better, but there’s also much worse.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2005 Had this on tap and it truly sucked!
No head and slightly skunked. One would think it would take effort to make beer taste skunky out of a freshly tapped keg.
