3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Morrisons - Looks really good with the crystal clear yellow body, fluffy white head, and dancing carbonation. After that it is pretty much just a bog-standard lager, albeit a decent one. But... for a quid a bottle, what can you say?

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Green half-litre bottle from my local Morrisons Supermarket: BBD 18 Sep 14, poured into two Veltins Pilsner badged glasses on 2 Nov 13.
Looked like almost every other Czech lager/pilsner on earth: golden, clear and bright. Usual no show of a lasting head too.
Gets my regular score of 3 for an odourless pilsner/lager: although this did have a slight metallic hint with a grass stain on it.
The taste was neither here nor there: grains rule overall, some sweetness at first, then a dry hop finish ensues. Refreshing enough, but not the best lager/pilsner in the world, that’s for sure.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bought from Morrisons at Bilston. Bronze with a malty aroma. Maltiness dominates producing a flavour that sems stronger than its real strength. A good Czech style lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from Morrisons Scunthorpe. Deep gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Solidly grassy hops initially in the nose with a background of delicate honeyed malty sweetness, quite dry in the mouth with a persistent hop note and low maltiness, lingering restrained hop bitterness in the finish, very drinkable for its strength.
