2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
24th Jan 2015: a country tick I thought I’d never get. Cheers ’Scopey’ for bringing the can to the Cotteridge Wines meeting. Pours your normal lager/pilsner look: clear, clean and bright golden, usual white fading head too. Weak aroma with mild light malt and straw notes (maybe). Fairly sweet but not corn syrup style, grainy, yes. Leaning towards a dry bittering finish and on the whole one of the better ’lager/pilsners’ brought to the mega session.

Can share. Cotteridge Beano. Clear gold. White, bubbly head. Corn. Sugar. Bit of dry. Not bad, but nothing to write home about, either. Could be one of any number.

Can shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2014. Big thanks to Paul via Bunce. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a frothy white crown. The beer actually smells alright, with notes of biscuits and hay. Light sweet flavor with pleasant dry pale bread, mild bitter hay, lemon rind. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish with further biscuity pale malts, straw. Solid. Quite impressed by this one.

Many thanks to kevnic2008 for sharing this can! Mild-grainy beginning. Fresh, crisp. Not too deep but nicely bittered. Fresh, slightly grainy, nice. Nice and crisp and quite bitter beer. The aftertaste is not too sweetish, malty-crisp, hints of grain. Round and nice! For a Pale Lager great!
