rosenbergh (7764) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
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...

The_Osprey (2499) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
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.

Nice golden classic lager colour. Aroma kind of sweet/strong Overall flavour is a nice malty/grain and dry bitterness/ to balance. Pretty good lager.

berkshirejohn (4903) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
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.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
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.
