2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Two bottles bought from Lidl. Having read some ratings I wasn’t expecting much. Well, It poured bright gold with a dense white head that lasted all the way through. Sweaty aroma and a yeasty, metallic taste with a bit of cereal that wasn’t unpleasant. Tasted more like a lager than a golden ale however; The major issue for me was carbonation. Really gassy, I was struggling with the second bottle.
