2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap....Pours with a large, foamy white head. The color is a light amber in which you can see the amount of carbination. It’s aroma is somewhat hoppy with a hint of spice. It tastes more spicy than hoppy. Overall for a somewhat mass produced lager, it really isn’t that bad

Allright I admit it I drink this all the time, though I never thought to rate it. And it was actually better than I thought it was going to be. Pours with a very large head that settles after awhile, clear light orange coloring. Almost no aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is slightly watery with some sweetness (that was a surprise) and some spice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber in color pour. Small white head, not bad. Taste is less hoppy than aroma, but I have had fresher bottles with more hop presence. Slight malt character, a little metallic. Just ok.

Tastes like home. But seriously, this is just a good beer. Great with a steak. Nothing special about it really, just tastes right and it’s better than half the beer at the supermarket.

Honey coloured body with a medium sized white head. Metallic hops on the nose and in the taste, good lacing, lemon sweet and a medium body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A darn good effort, although I have sampled some with a slightly metallic taste to it. May be a bit hoppy for some, but not overwhelmingly so. Cook a steak on the bar-b and enjoy.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Safeway, Shirley, West Midlands. A toasty, rosy lager colour. Reasonable bubbly head, with some pristine white lacing. Very sweet and malty beer. Light, crispy, but not too much depth. Sharp in the finish and slightly metallic. This is OK, but lacking smoothness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful golden Amber colour with little to no head. Excellent Robust Hop Aroma. Not full mouthfeel but good mouthfeel. Not much lacing but then again it just came out of freezer that may have something to do with its appearance and flavour. Some evidence of Hops and some roasting of the Malts also appears. I have had better but have certainly had worse. I always have a six or two handy for when I have to share by Stash. You can't go wrong with SABL. Its definitely worth the 5.29 I paid. A damn good Lager. CHEERS!

Bold, hoppy flavor. Slightly sweet and dry at the end. Golden color and nice white lace when finished. Great beer, best lager.
