2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Complete crap. I’m a fan of British beers, but this is just crap. Taste like no lager I’ve ever tasted. Strange after taste. When in London avoid at all cost.
Golden, small head. Aroma is floral and from toffee. Toffee comes back in the flavor together with some bread. Bitter finish, a good lager. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2004
Yellow/golden, smalle head. Aroma is clearly malty from toffee and butter. Flavor is malty with floral touches. Buttery palate and a somewhat bitter finish. This was a nice surprise to me... fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2003
Young's Export Premium Lager, KegSilkTork (5855) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2003
Pale color. Undistinguishable aroma. Light taste, but with an original flowery note (elderflower). Dry.
On Tap, The Courthouse, Dartford. Slightly fuller bodied than the Pilsner with a more prounced malt presence and a better balance with the hops. Remains good tasting for longer than the Pilsner. Salty finish.

I had this side-by-side with the Young's Pilsner. This had just a wee bit more head than the pilsner, but not enough to discount the possibility of just two different glasses. Perhaps it is a faint shade darker (more orange) as well, but close enough to make no odds. You really wouldn't necessarily pick these two apart by appearance. Grassy, dusty aroma, with a pretty ugly similar flavor. At home this would have been a drain pour, but at the pub it was just the better part of a half-pint left on the table as I left.

Sampled on tap in London. Pale, glowing golden. Thin head but tons of lace. Malty nose with a hint of hops. Very flavorful--lightly fruity, prefect hop bitterness in the finish. A damn fine lager. boto (2263) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 18, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2003 Draught: I had this on tap at a pub called the Spread Eagle in London. The beer was a nice golden color. It had a little head, with not much carbonation to it. There was a slight hop aroma to it. There was also a similar mild hoppiness to the taste. This had a good bit more of a malty body than your typical lager. Very smooth. I'm guessing that it is very different in bottles than on tap, based on other reviews of this beer. ravidesai (979) - Bombay, INDIA - OCT 25, 2002
