2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the Craft, Brixton, 18/01/13.
Lightly obscured pale golden with a thin white head that goes straight to the edge.
The rather subdued nose carries pale malt, light hops, touch of grass.
Taste follows, rather bland mix of pale malts, faint hops, grass, light sugars.
Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation, dry in the finish.
Way better than a macro lager but no thanks all the same!

On tap. Classic lager. Pale gold with plenty of carbonation. Thin white bubbly top. Mild rice malt nose. Nice crisp bite to the lager. Really pleasant. Not much kick, but not expecting much. Refreshing.
