Plechovka 0,5 l z Marks and Spencer Nitra. Svetlá farba, jemná biela bublinková pena, sladová aróma. Nižšia rezkosť, plná sladová chuť, jemne alkoholová dochuť. Dá sa to vypiť.

Can at home in London - sourced from the Paddington Station M&S (so, basically right at the brewery). Pours immaculately clear pale gold, lightly effervescent, with an impressively resilient white froth head. The nose holds some lackadaisical grainy pale malts, hints of hay, orange rind, cereal. Light-medium sweet flavor, a little bit crisp, with some pleasant lagery cereal, pale bread, mild bitter hay and straw, impressions of citrus, just suggestions of paper. Light bodied with average carbonation. The finish ain’t bad, just some further dry cereal, other grains, hay. A pretty basic cheap lager but it totally gets the job done. Solid example of the style.

500ml can at home. Good boost anf a a London Tick! Crystal clear pale yellow coloured pour with a lasting frothy white head. Looks ok. Aroma is sweet, corn, light diacetyl that blows of quite quickly, tart apple, rough lager yeast. Flavour is composed of watery light grains, tangy apple, considerable adjunct, rice. Palate is light, bit watery, high carbonation. Lingering tangy apple and grains.

500 ml can. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. A very generic lager with mild malt, sweetness and a hint of grassy hops. Blah...

500ml can BB July 2015. Clear yellow, sparkling, decent foamy off-white head, sparse lacing. Aroma is biscuity malt, background orange and baby food. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is light malts, touch of varnish, warm water (even though it’s cold). Crisp peppery finish, light bitterness. Decent lager.
