2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
28th September 2012: dodgy lager/pilsner tasting (at home).
0.5 litre bottle purchased in a local Lidl store: best before 05/2013, the bottle was poured (three times) into my lovely old DAB funny shaped mini tankard.
Mid-range pilsner gold; clear, clean and bright. A full crown of white foam capped it off nicely, sadly in typical pilsner style that head soon fell away to a thin wispy covering and a collar.
No aroma at all, gets my standard 3 score for a non-smelling lager/pilsner.
This is a dry, refreshing and fairly bitter pilsner and not bad at all: would never have known it was a cheap supermarket brew unless I’d bought it myself.
Pleasantly surprised by the quality to be honest: it was up against a can of ’Galahad’ and a bottle of ’Fosters Gold’, I told you at the begining it was a dodgy lager/pilsner tasting!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. Pours clear sparkling golden with a large frothy white head that is quite steady. Aroma of grassy hops, hay, grain and some sweet maize as undetone. Taste of a bit cloying maize, sweet malt and hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and oily texture. A bit of cloying maize in the finish as well. Rather balanced basic lager. Good price vs quality ratio.
