"the malt in this brew is pleasantly sweet, which just barely saves it from being yet another substandard entry in this catergory. small floral hop presence as well. nothing great, but not bad either."

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is on over ripped fruits. Aroma is on wet paper, very watery, dry toasted malt, boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Tesco. Disappointing. Nice mouthfeel, but thin on flavour - the cereal honey straw hop notes fade away to uncertainty almost immediately. How can Lion produce a world beating Stout, yet a below average Lager?

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp lager nose, pale yellow body and big lick of a white head. Decent enough carbonation helps carry a generous and dry amount of barley and crispbread across, but this just drys out to a manky malt and unremarkable finish.

From a bottle on the porch of the Galle Face hotel in Sri Lanka. Good clear golden lager. Light grassy aroma. Slightly complex sour corn and floral notes.A perfect accompaniment to super hot curry.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can off the coast of Mexico on 21st March 2014 (on MS Balmoral, a Fred Olsen cruise liner). One of many strange cans available at a ’beer festival’ on board the ship. Typical lager/pilsner: golden, clear and clean looking. Bright body with a white fading crown on top. Usual almost odourless lager aroma, some grains and hops maybe but it still gets a low score for the smell. Taste wise it didn’t do much, more malts than hops, refreshing but bordering on tasteless, certainly bland and lacking in flavour in my eyes.
