3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl can from M&S Camberley. A fairly standard lager - better than some with a reasonable weight and a malty body, and a clean citrus finish.
