2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Dark yellow with big proud white head. Lively carbs. Smell is a bit skunky. There are some nice grassy hops mixed in but they can’t rise above the skunk. Taste is overall bitter with fleeting specks of fruity sweetness. Bitter as hell finish in the back of the tongue. There isn’t a whole lot to separate this from some of the better US/UK macro lagers. I can’t recommend.

Can at Samuel Peto Spoons Folkestone. Clear gold lasting ivory head. It’s a thinnish metallic lager. Some odd lemon. Hmmm this isn’t great. Not sure I would want to drink this again. Odd lemon lime flavour. Not much hop. Too carbonated.
