First brewed in 1938.
It is a light alcohol drink with not too strong bitterness but rather soft taste; therefore, it’s easy to drink it up.

Brewed for US market at City Brewery’s Latrobe plant since 2012.

From a can. An odd one for me this one. It has a strange, cheapish cider taste to it. That would put me off buying it again. On the plus side, it’s not too watery and I can see how it could be refreshing on a warm day. Overall, very standard other than the strange taste.

Bottle to English pint glass. Pours clear straw yellow, quick white head, no lacing or retention. Aroma of hay. Taste is sweet. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, soapy mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of grass, corn, skunk and bread. Just slightly better than the TV beers.

Not much new going on with this Pale Lager. It’s not bad, rather refreshing but nothing out of the ordinary.

zacgillbanks (2909) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle from b&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Pale yellow, almost clear in colour with a sugary sweet fruity flavour, slight soapy notes and a very dry finish. Not very nice at all.

For average, this is actually good tasting and overall a good beer. Has a yellow-golden color, maybe a hint of red. Decent amount of carb and head. Appears like a typical lager, but has a decent taste, which is mostly barley, light malts, with some minimal spices. Definitely a couple notches over budweiser and company.

484ml can. Drank with Jamaican food in Great Moor, Stockport. Hoppy/malty nose. Light carbonation but quite zingy on the tongue. A few hops upfront, then it’s the sweet, sweet train all the way home.
