2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden lager with a bright white, averaged life head. Aroma dominated by light malts and some noble hops. Malty flavour, with some doughy characters and apparent late hopping with nobles. Medium bitterness with a nice clean finish. One of the better ’Premium’ Lagers but a bit overrated as i dont think it is very different to many of the others on the market, just has classier reputation here in Aus.

Beaconstreet tells me this is, in England, like Budweiser is in the US, just all over. This was kind of skunky smelling...this was like Rolling Rock but slightly better

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light gold with lasting creamy white head. Not much flavor. Light and crispy beer. Hoppy. Slightly bitter finish. Good lacing. Not a complex beer, but still quite solid.

Good beer. Nice crisp, refreshing flavor and a good finish. Basically tastes like an American lager.

The 11.2 oz. bottled version pour clear and pale yellow in appearance with a medium bright white head. The aroma features straw and light hops. But, this beer is dry throughout--from initial palate to long-lasting finish. Mid-palate is unremarkable; yet, this medium-bodied Pilsner-style lager is refreshing and thirst quenching. A respectable offering in the right setting.

(Bottle 25 cl) Pale golden, decent head (for a pilsener). Dry, soft body. Pleasant alright with just the right dose of hops to distinguish it from the more bland macrobrews. An OK pils. 030897

I don’t know why I was expecting a Belgian-style beer. This reminded me of a macro German Pils, only not quite at even that level. Hoppy aroma, white fluffy head. Very carbonated with hoppy palate and dry finish. Very little to talk about here.

Very clean, drinkable beer. Light flavor, goes well with spicy or strong flavored foods.

Pale yellow gold hue, soft foamy white head, but falls quickly, pale malt, floral hop aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with pale malt, sweet corny note in a mild hoppy finish. A standard international lager
