Specialty bottle Christmas set: 2 glasses and 1 champagne-like corked bottle.
Appearance is a pale straw colored beer. Medium carbonation with a 1 ½ to 2 inch white head. Surprisingly nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma is rather boring. I primarily get grain. Definitely get the skunkiness due to the green bottle.

The beer tastes like a macro-lager. A tad bit better than an average macro-lager however. I primarily get the nose in the taste: grain and skunk. Rather watery in my opinion with a lesser amount of carbonation than expected. Dry biscuity notes. The beer is pretty bland. I almost get a corn flavor, which may be the yeast or the grain. Strange hop flavor at the end. No bitterness, rather just an off-flavored hop presence.

Overall, this beer wouldn’t be terrible to drink at a hockey game. There is much more hype about this beer than there should be. The glassware however is pretty cool! I would pair this beer with something salty – typical pub fare anything from mixed nuts to wings to popcorn. I give it a 68/100.

Drank cold straight from 284ml green bottle.

Once considered a premium beer in the UK, continuous reductions in strength due to taxing have left it instead as a fairly solid standby beer when nothing else takes your fancy.

S) Slightly skunked, dank hops.

T) Bitter Saars hops take the forefront. Only light bready malt flavour if any back it up. Some metallic flavours.

M) Light and very fizzy - would be refreshing if it were not for the slightly bitter aftertaste.

O) Still a much better beer than the other standard UK lagers (Carling, Fosters) etc.

This is my wife's favorite beer, so we almost always have it in the house. It's very drinkable and significantly more enjoyable than most lagers out there. Recently we have been enjoying the 14.9oz cans poured into Stella chalices. The combination of the can and the chalice provides a nice lasting frothy head; nose is slightly sweet with a slight but not unpleasant “skunk” smell; mild hop flavor with some grain, generally very enjoyable. Drinks like a light beer, but tastes and has the ABV of a “real” beer.
