1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This was picked up in my local Tesco after being reduced to clear, Iíd seen it on the shelf a few times but not being a great (mass produced) lager drinker, and it being a 6pack, I left it where it was! In the past however, I rather liked Tennents Gold Bier, and I kinda miss it, "This could be the same thing relabelled at a slightly lower ABV" I thought ...thatís why I bought the reduced pack!! This isnít Gold Bier :( itís pretty much a slightly fuller bodied version of the bog standard "lager" produced by Tennentís, and as I REALLY donít like that, I cant say I took to this! The only problem I have now is how to dispose of the other 5 bottles...I hate waste, but this may just end up down the sink!

Pale straw color with good head.
Mild bitterness with slight body but a clean finish.
Nothing spectacular here but OK as a cheap quaffer.

500ml can into shaker. 5%. Bought from bottle shop near Broadway, Sydney. Nose is cardboard, tin, bread, bubblegum and pepper. Crystal clear golden amber with two fingers of frothy white head.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours clear blonde with a fine white head. Nose is a mix of sweet bread and European hops that lean slightly skunked. Flavor is fairly sweet for a pale lager with decent balance. better than most American pale lager but that isnít saying much.
