2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
25cl stubby from Sainsburys. Best before 27 December 2007. Consumed in January 2010. Styled as a French beer but actually made in Germany. Gold with some odd floaty bits in suspension. Rather papery aroma. Surprising amount of remaining hop bitterness. Not too compromised by the age. Doubt it would have been much better when fresh.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Golden colour with funny stuff floating around. Small white head. Aroma is cardboard, some grains and mild strange notes of mould. Flavour is quite much the same along with some sight fruity notes as well.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle sourced by The Jenners. Pa Jenner was topping his Winter Hop up with it, and I had to look away. Mushy sweetcorn, grass, rubber and almond aroma. Pale pissy fizz with a white rim. Buttery popcorn, hay, maize, hutch. Notes go on a bit of a rant about adjuncts, then I come on RB and find out it’s German. Either a very crap advert for the Reinheitsgebot, or a very good one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 25cl. Pours a good dark golden colour with a thin white head. The aroma is very yeasty. The taste is very clean with a hint of bitterness. The finish is very dry.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Stubby green bottle from Sainsbury’s. A clean, refreshing pale lager with sof tbiscuit malt and just enough hops to provide bite and a pleasant finishing bitterness. Not a great beer, but certainly drinkable, and better than the average global pale lager.
