1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This was picked up in my local Tesco after being reduced to clear, Iíd seen it on the shelf a few times but not being a great (mass produced) lager drinker, and it being a 6pack, I left it where it was! In the past however, I rather liked Tennents Gold Bier, and I kinda miss it, "This could be the same thing relabelled at a slightly lower ABV" I thought ...thatís why I bought the reduced pack!! This isnít Gold Bier :( itís pretty much a slightly fuller bodied version of the bog standard "lager" produced by Tennentís, and as I REALLY donít like that, I cant say I took to this! The only problem I have now is how to dispose of the other 5 bottles...I hate waste, but this may just end up down the sink!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is grainy with a hint of skunkiness which is probably due to green bottle. Appearance is clear golden body, fizzy, with a white head about an finger height which does linger for awhile. Taste is a sweet grainy malt. Feels light and wet.

Bottle. Clear light golden pour with a soda-like white head that dissipated quickly. Grain, floral, perfume. Light crisp body. Sparkling water like finish. Easy to drink

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml can, clear yellow color with thin weak white head. first taste are light hoops with medium bitter. taste are light hoops with some kind hidden corn sweetness. aftertaste are light hoops with mineral watter and some kind metallic taste. probably metallic taste is from can. i think in bottle should be a bit different taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 3/31/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with very poor strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Pretty clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes in the aroma and flavor. Medium carbonation and light-medium bady; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml can. Filtered yellow-tan body. Foamy, thin white head. The aroma is kind of shabby...earthy garbage macro-corn tones. Has a touch of skunky noble hops, which make it slightly drinkable. This is still a weak, poor offering no matter how you slice it, a beer made for bums with no taste. Wouldnít get this one again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the 500 ml. can with an expiration date of 31 Aug 2015. Itís a lager so it pours golden yellow with a highly carbonated overzealous white foamy head. Not a whole lot of aroma. Vague grain, vague pale malts, and thin bittering hops. Light to medium body. The taste is slightly sweet, toasty, grainy, and has a balanced clean hop finish. Nothing that puts this ahead of other beers in this style. Easy drinking.

Btl pours clear yellow with fluffy white head small amounts of lace on glass. Smells of corn and grain. Tastes of sweet malt , vegetal and butter flavors.Light body,Medium carbonation,watery mouthfeel and a semi dry finish. Extremely boring and unappealing Scottish lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quality pale lager with a nice balance between malt and hops, good body and clean, refreshing finish. One of the better brews of its kind.
