2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml can BBD end of Jan 2015, shared with my father on 25th May 2014 during an afternoon of lager/pilsner comparing. This faired a lot better than some of them! Light golden and showing all the usual lager/pilsner attributes in looks, the white head even gave off some lacing which surprised us both. Spritzy and crisp in nature with no real aroma or taste. Neither sweet nor bitter it was a ’middle of the road’ lager based beer that didn’t offend or excite the taste buds or any other of the senses.

Canned: a dull ass beer, it was nice enough to take my attention away from the fat couple eating Big Macs opposite me _ : a basic lager : some light malt and dry grassy hops.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 500ml from M&S in Banbury. Pale gold with short white head. Grainy, slightly fusty flavours from the thinnish malt, there is a CO2 edge, damp cardboard and a tinny note. Some mild lemon notes with a malty sweetness later. Not one of the better canned beers around at present.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw colour, bit corny and heavily carbonated but with some decent hop character to give it a crisp-ish finish. Reasonable.

Bottled (thanks SADESAs and CueSheets father!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is mild herbs, not very interesting and also has some light starch like sweetness to it. Flavour is quite similar. Bland and watery.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml can (Marks & Spencers Kriistine, Tallinn)
Very typical pale lager aroma, bland and a little sweet. Pale, brief light head. Very metallic and fatty hoppy palate, quite astringent like an ESL, but without any of the body of an ESL. In fact it’s quite watery. Not very pleasant, but not a disaster either.
