3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.05.2010
Aroma has English hops, some grainy malt and distant floral notes. Flavour is rather malty with grainy notes, English hops, hay, citrus and hints of biscuits. Not the most typical beer in this style but good anyway.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with a think white head which soon dissipates leaving nice traces around the edges, not much on the nose tiny bit of pils not much else, taste of fruits preserved in honey, surprisingly think full mouth full, nice but I won't go back for seconds

Draft at the Brussels Beer Cafe, Kuala Lumpur. Served cool, with a light amber pour, some froth with a little lacing... but what does it taste like? A weak aroma it must be said which leads to an incredibly malty flavour which sets this beer aside from other beers in this genre. It was probably served a little too cold to be honest because as the beer warmed a little,the flavours really came through. It reminded me a lot of the unfiltered Pilsner Urquell actually which isn't a bad recommendation. The Czech hops are very evident, but this beer is all about the malt. A very likable beer at the end of the day which really grew on me as it got slightly warmer.

Bottle. Standard lager appearance. Flavour is straight forward lager with a mild citrus flavour. I’ve had better ’craft’ lagers.

Chelmsford Winter Fest. Pale gold beer. Completely flat - not lager like whatsoever! Sweet fruits with a touch of honey. Nice flavour but zero carb in a lager? I ask you!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very pale golden body with a small, frothy, white, very short-lived head that leaves some lacing. Faint aroma that is very sweet and not that pleasant. Pale malts, cereals and... eh... sweetness. Moderate sweet taste with a light bitter finish. Quite faint flavours, but at least they are more pleasant than the aroma. In addition to the sweet malty parts there are some fruity notes. But where are the U.S. hops? Light to medium body and a very generous carbonation. Boring stuff, there’s nothing premium about this lager.
