2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. It pours a quite pale golden, clear body under a small white head. Pale malt and a distinct fruity sweetness, as well as a surprising touch of alcohol in the aroma. Fruity-sweet flavor, almost like syrup from canned pears, with some malt and a little alcohol. Not much bitterness, but some in the finish. Medium mouthfeel, slightly papery. Sure, it’s drinkable for sure, serves it’s purpose quite well, but it’s a boring one. A bit on the sweet side too. (080618)

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: The pour is a clear golden straw with a small white head.
S: Same pruney, cloying sugar smell as many other lagers from the region. Horribly sweet with a little bit of metal and bleach. Apple juice and corn syrup only add to the problem.
T: Sweet corn syrup and cereal all the way. Mild malt flavor gives just a bit of bread. No hop character or bitterness at all. Straw flavor is pretty much all the contrast you get from it.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: I don’t think I’ll be repeating my purchase.

Tin, 500ml from Grosik Euro Supermarket, Banbury. Pale gold with fizzed short head. Quite a sweet, grainy, corn like malted beer. Slightly glutinous in character, very few hops for me. Not great.
