at_the_hop (109) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Lacy head that doesnt stick around. Hazy colour. Mainly cereal, rice with a barley wine booze finish. Doesnt show many bubbles but the fizz is aggressive and harsh in the mouth and at odds with its creaminess and slick oil palate. Not all that pleasant. Can feel the ethanol kicking in already and shame to waste so much of this evenings drinking capacity on the rest of this oversized bottle of plonk.

Hanoi (922) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Nose is cereal, grassy, some fruity esters, the dreaded pilsner cardboard. Taste is cereal, some soft fruit notes, peach, marzipan, a creamy note which I guess was the rice, the a short herbal and grain finish. Mouthfeel is lager horrible. Bought because it was cheap in Morrisons, I wasnt expecting it to have been brewed in Palm. In fairness its much more interesting than the souped up macro-lager I expected, but is still not actually nice in a meaningful sense.

Looks like a normal golden piss coloured larger. Smells wheaty. Clear rice taste with barley tones and malt finish. Refreshing and deceptively strong.
