2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Flat pale malty and minimally grainy aroma, cautious bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, mild bitter hoppy overtones, a minimally grassy touch, cautious hints of lemon. Not bad considering style and provenance.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle in Waitrose, Cavendish Square, because of the World Cup. Bit soapy, low on hop, some sweetness. Not totally unpleasant but very unsatisfying too.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from bottle at Edmonton Craft Beer Fest ’14. Clear yellow with a thin white cap. Sweet nose, grainy, some lemon. Taste has sweet grains and lemon notes. Probably not something I would drink again, though it is better than most domestic pale lagers. Tick.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not unpleasant, little carbonation, a bit watery but refreshing. Had this in summer to food in Greek style (tsatsiki etc.), worked well.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce twist top bottle. That in itself is interesting because most imports are 0.33 liter with a pry off crown. Pours clear gold with a nice white head. Taste is kind of thin with a sweet aftertaste. Pretty good lager for a hot summer´s day, but obviously made with some kind of adjunct. Finishes clean and refreshing. Not something that stands out in a crowd, but still far better than a lot of North American lagers. Nice unassuming thirst quencher.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Malty aroma, sweet, watery taste. Ok, unspectacular, drinkable

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
coffee, nuts, skunky, golden, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, light body, thin feel. Nice malty, slightly skunky aroma. Unfortunately it’s all smoke and mirrors, as it tastes of sweet cardboard and little else. Very thin and it ~might~ hit the spot after a run on a hot summer day. Not something I’m looking to try again however.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another lager that pours clear golden with small white head.
The quite malty aroma dominates the nose, as does the taste really, which is sweet, light and too watery.
Still, it was drinkable because it was ice cold, but nothing special about it.
