Nothing amazing but decent for a lager. Better then many other beers on tap in England. But found it was a bit pricey on tap.

Bottle at level 39 canary wharf. Middle of the road lager. Not much going on. Yellow small white head. Clean pilsner malt carbonic bite, very little hop.

4.5% on sale at 250 yen from Rakuten. Decent mild fruity grass aroma on a clear straw colored body with fluffy white foam. A clear lager with a tiny bit of a bitter finish over a medium body. A good palate cleanser but boring to drink all the time. But a pretty decent lager, not exciting but palatable.

I always dread the experience of trying a new pale lager. Even more if it is from a brewery that produces some great beer. So this London Lager was a lovely surprise. I loved the fruity nose behind the normal skunkiness of the pale lager. A bit sour, something like a strawberry or raspberry. The beer is well-balanced, sweet with some tart bitterness, crisp and pleasant. A rather shy english version of Moa Breakfast.

Clear golden yellow with small white foam head. Aroma is bit weak, little sweetness. Taste is sweet to, little bitter, little flowery. Aftertaste is long, not the usual British beer. (London 201305)

Anything with the world "lager" in it tends to disappoint, but then again if you weight it with it’s peers this is not a bad beer, just not very exciting.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear dull golden colour; Razor-thin head and residual white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Almost no lacing with notable carbonation; Aroma of malt, bread, hint of butter, and slight straw and hay; Minimal, almost no sweet taste of malt, with light bread, faint citrus and light grass; Light body, with rather watery thin and empty palate; Taste profile is macro pale lager base without adjuncts and sweetness (good) but otherwise really thin and empty, with malt, bread, citrus, grass tastes all in short supplies; Hoppiness is really weak for a premium lager, not enough to contribute any decent finish; Slightly dry after taste, extremely easy to mouth.
Comments: A disappointing premium lager, with paper-thin body, empty maltyness and hoppiness. Its only saving grace is no sugar and grain tastes. In truth, better than macro pale lager is not enough in this class. Not worth the US$3 I paid for.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle. Very slightly cloudy straw colour with a small head. Generic lager aroma. Pretty generic lager flavour, too. Perhaps a little more yeasty. Certainly better than commercial European and American lagers but nothing special.
