3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Yellow, golden, clear. Nice nose. Has a bulk-lager yeastyness, but also soft green grassy hops, freshness. Soft smooth body, good soft bitters. Somewhat pale, honey, malts. But good vibrant flavours. Hasn’t anything really special, but still an enjoyable and entertaining drink. Much like a nice homebrew lager that’s been properly hopped.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nose is grain, wet cardboard, malt. It fades very quickly. Looks like a larger. Taste: Lovely full bitter taste, lots of malt initially leading to grapefruit, then fading bitterness leaving a dry grapefruit finish. Mouthfeel is silky.
It’s a good larger with an awful nose. Taste is not especially complex, but that’s the nature of the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle, exp 09/08/15. Golden color, thick lacing white head. Sticky, glueish aroma with yeast and distant fruity notes. Flavor has citrusy fruitiness, grassy hops, malt and alcohol, especially when really cold. Bitter finish. The flavor saved this beer as the aroma was quite off somehow.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Undated 330ml bottle says 5.3% ABV, served in a lager glass.
Poured a hazy golden-amber with a large and moderately durable off-white head. Lots of sticky lacing left on the glass, and a layer of dark sediment left stuck to the bottom of the bottle.
Plenty of sweet malts in the flavor, but enough hops to nearly balance these.
Medium body with a smooth feel and fine, soft, medium carbonation.
O: a solid beer that doesn’t really fit in the pilsner category.
