1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml can at abv 4.5% bought at CR Vanguard in Pratt Avenue, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear dull golden colour; Less than one-quarter head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small lacing with quite fizzy carbonation; Very light aroma of malt, with icing sugar, glucose, lemon soda, corn, light yeast and faint grass; Mid to light sweet taste of thin malt, with light cardboard, light corn, lemon soda, shandy, light lemon, very low bitter hops and faint grass; Mid to light body. Fairly slick palate; Mouth feel is a bit thick and sluggish soda or shandy with macro Pale-level thin maltyless. Some chemical, light corn and wet paper in background, though not that annoying. Otherwise shandy-like all the way. Very empty… Hoppiness is very light lemon and grass in nose, with a bit more of both in taste. Bitterness is close to negligible for a cornish, slightly teeth-rotting sweet finish; Slightly dry after taste, Soda-ish and fairly easy to mouth.
Comments: As a Macro Pale, this is better than Biere Blonde de Luxe and Blonderbrau, but it still bear the hallmarks of Saint-Omer’s mediocrities – malt is minimal, sluggish body, dusty teeth-rotting hidden sweetness, and no hops or finish. Easily drinkable, if only in a slightly marginal sense.

A great budget lager. Similar to carling except for more flavour and doesnt send you to the loo every 2 minutes. Excellent for summer
