3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dry tasting golden coloured pils. Not bad-not good and wont try again.
Surprisingly lacking in body considering its gravity. Didn’t know that the brewery was owned by SabMiller but can see the atraction to the accountants.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper in colour and well carbonated. A little bit of grassy hops and skunk on the nose. Cereal malts, herbs, and subtle spice flavors are apparent. Thin bodied, and a short finisher. A fairly average and drinkable pilsner, but it needs considerably more bittering, flavoring, and aroma hops to be of any interest.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
standard euro macro. Inoffensive but doesn’t make you want to make the effort to try another. Light malty aroma. Cornish middle. Microscopic hop finish.

Bottle BBE 05/06 (08/08/05). Slight peary appley fruit. Sweet malt sugars high carbonation and quite stingy with the hops. Perfectly acceptable to wash down a sandwich whilst sitting in the park.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a medium foamy white head, fast diminishing. Sweet malty nose. Initially slightly sweet grainy malty taste turning into a bit unbalanced sharp bitterness. Not very remarkable but somewhat drinkable Pilsener.
