3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Anchor Tap - Tower Brisge, London. Pours clear, pale yellow, highly effervescent with a dense, creamy and purely white head. The aroma holds dry cereal, mild straw, pale bread. Light sweet flavour with more basic cereal grains, white bread, hay, minimal bitterness. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. More simple pale bread and cereal on the finish, straw, mellow grains. Overall, it’s a quite relaxed, mellow and drinkable pale lager. And at this low ABV it’s the kind of thing you could sink a lot of. Enjoyable and very drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, herbal hops, straw, grass. Sweet malty flavour, light sour malts, hint of hops. Sweet finish, nuts. Not bad for a light lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Chandos, near Trafalgar Square. Straw, clear, with some forced carbonation coming through. Lemon/pear scent with a grainy note. Taste is slight, with sweet citrus and a short finish. Weak body but not as bad as you’d think. Refreshing and surprisingly decent for a low-strength lager.
