2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wheat, fucnky aroma on this clear golden beer. Minimal carbonation and white head that dissipates. Wheaty, bitter flavour. Quite watery. Not great, not at all. But I have had worse.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Brown color bottle that looks nothing like the clear one in the photo here purchased in Perth, Scotland. Pours clear and golden with a fat and good lacing white head. Body is medium and mouthfeel good for a lager. Nose is caramel malts and floral hops. Flavor shows light bitterness and the finish is dry and bitter. Very nice lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Morrisons (is this really different to the Export?). Pours bright golden with a steady stream of carbonation and a tall, uneven, generously lacing collar. Clean honeyed aroma with hints of herbs and lemon. Opens slightly soapy (aloe vera?) in an almost Kingfisher-esque way , but otherwise crisp and uncomplicated; good grassy hops, breadstick, shrubs, biscuit and honey. Some paperiness as it warms, but my fault for not drinking it fast enough. Tasty lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty straight forward premium. Lots of grass and gas, thin bodied and unappealing.

Amazing. A pale lager that actually manages to deliver. It manages to provide across the board a drink that is neither vile or bland. It is a decent beer that delivers a satisfying aroma and flavour, that is crisp and clean on the palate - one of few pale lagers that actually deliver that elusive promise. While it has no extraordinary characteristics, what it does deliver is satisfying and worth drinking. Kudos.
