2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Found this as a lone bottle in the bottom of a local bottle shop-- bad omen? Standard lager appearance and nose, and fairly standard palate too. Overall better than the macros, but not very distinguishable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Seemed to sought out this lager, tucked away in the back of the fridge, amazed at my difficulty anyone bought it at all. Sharp spicy hop aroma, reminds me of a tropical fernery. Crystal clear gold body, with a short soapy white head. Flavours of sweet malt upfront, bitter grassy hop sides and a very clean, bitter swallow and short clammy aftertaste Nothing offensive, very clean, but heavily unbalanced. Above Oz’s norm, but still bog standard.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yellow Colouring with a small head which doesn’t last very long. Watery, bland, mild, bitter, fizzy flavour. A hint of being a bit woody. Think I’ll pass on this one in the future.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Presented as premium but at this ABV they are kidding us surely. A typical attempt at presenting a beer that is inoffensive. Offend me please.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought this beer was a good quality quite well made lager. Sharpish aroma, well balanced. Clean and pure and it finishes a little dry and bitter.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Standard hop aroma, very little head that doesn't last,as for the taste I thought it was bland and unappealing.

An ok brew but not a beer I’d pull of the shelf given a choice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Well, I kinda like it. Not loads, but it’s ok. Maybe excessive exposure to the CUB stable lowers the expectations.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Medium pale gold clear with a small white shortish lasting head. Faint sappy/woody hops and faint stale nectar aroma. Some vinous sherry hints when warmer. Very mild bitter and light fizzy sweet softdrink style palate. Too Bland and too watery for my taste.
