1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, light gold, with a large white head, which dissipates rapidly but does leave some lace. The aroma has some faint grass and white bread, with a bit of a metallic scent to it. Wet grass up front leads into some very faint caramel and much stronger cardboard, with a metallic aftertaste. A distinctly uninspiring lager, definitely not recommended.
