1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at home from Marks and Spencer Euston. Clear pale yello straw colour with a fleeting thin white head. Aroma is grainy corn, and slight acidic apple edge. Flavour is watery carbonic acid bite. Slight metal. The palate is watery gassy and really thin. A very disappointing beer. Could not finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden lager that looks the part but with no head. Has a sweet aroma like most other beers but little flavour to it, although the dominant feature is its great texture, the pure spring water gives it an exceptionally smooth feel in the palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml from M&S Banbury. Gold with fizzed head. Light, slightly flowery, fruity lager, a touch flabby rather than crisp I would say, but reasonable enough. Some lemon though. It’s ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, light yellow-gold with a small, foamy white head. Dough, cereal and light hay in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, cereal, hay, light zesty citrus, faint grassy bitterness. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Crisp finish, lightly sweet with mild cereal, dough, faint straw. Very basic but pretty refreshing. Kind of watery but yeah, pretty easy drinking.
