2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the local Waitrose, pours clear golden color with an off-white head that totally dissipates. The smell is wet grain, some toastiness and sweetness. The taste is crisp at first then some toasted malt, a touch of sour mash and a bit of fruitiness then ending dry and slightly bitter. The body is light+ with mild carbonation. Some glimmers oaf a decent beer but also some faults which make it merely drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from, guess where? Lager gold, very little head. Lemon, some caramel and a grainy note to the aroma. Tastes sweet with a tangy and slightly astringent bitterness in the finish. Carbonation is spot on but body’s a bit thin. A good honest pils, certainly worth a try.

Bottle from the Waitrose on Gloucster Road. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is mildly spicy, with a touch of grass? Near med body. Flavor is mildly noble, somewhat bready, and finishes lightly bitter. Urquel it’s not, but it will do when the alternatives are tasteless macros.
