Let me preface my comments by stating that I drank a pint of this immediately following a pint of Newcaste Brown Ale. This tastes like watered down Budweiser. Don’t pay the extra $$$ when Bud is so much cheaper and tastes better.

Along with Carling this drink is amongst the worst I have tasted. A metallic lager with a definite chemical aftertaste. And I live in Scotland. This beer is regarded here as ’the poor mans drink’ or ’the alcoholics drink’ due to its low price and, frankly, awful taste. Nasty. And it’s rapidly losing pump space to Stella and Kronengbourg 1664-thank God. McAwan’s went the same way 5 yrs ago. Scotish lager is CRAP.

Rerate#3. Sweet honeyish delight. Slightly grassy, and pumpernickel bread tones with strong leather dubbin in the finish. Too smooth for a garage beer, but enough funk to pass flavour test. Fast becoming fave lager too quickly. Brillo!

Light maltiness, subtle bitterness. Nice medium body. Not bad, not great.

Not impressed, some off flavors. Sweet yet balanced with carbonation. There are other lagers that far outshine this one.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2002
Head is initially small, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (light bread). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very simple aroma, but pretty good balance on the tongue.

Tastes like a pale ale without the heavy hop character.Nice and refreshing.Flavor is pretty light ,but nothing repulsive about it.
