A – Light golden colour with heavy carbonation and a finger of white foam head. The head has low retention but does leave light cover and there is also evidence of CO2 in the glass.

S – A sweet mild malty nose with a light hint of apple but no real hops aroma to be found at all.

T – Very mild and easy on the pallet with sweet malts, a tiny bit of apple but this apple is very light. Then the whole thing is finished off by a nice little hop back end but again this is quite light.

MF – Really very smooth. A little dry at the finish and maybe slightly thin.

O – This one goes down very easy and I am now a fan of this. I would probably not drink this regularly at home in Ireland but in the summer or when in southern Europe if this is around I would be very happy to order it and even happier to drink it.

A typical pale lager appearance. Similar colour to a Czech pils. Head didn't last long and lacing was present but weak.

Aroma is grainy and could be described as a fairly generic pale lager aroma. OK.

The taste has notes of apple skin and is fairly sweet. There is no noble hop flavour or German pils style bitterness but a pleasant grainy sweet flavour with a touch of mild bitterness.

Overall, this beer is more tasty than Heienken or Stella and has a slightly fuller body perhaps due to the slightly higher abv. It is a very cheap widely available option that suffices well in many situations. I would place this on a par with Zywiec.

75/100

Picked this up a few weeks back at Stew Leonard's in Clifton in the closeout" bin, having never had this before. I'm not a fan of this style but for some reason, I didn't mind this beer that much. It was enjoyable, easy to drink, and more filling than I anticipated and it even surprised me that this was distributed by SABMiller. Just goes to show that I still have a lot to learn!

The appearance of this beer was what I expected it to be - clear, golden, a good amount of carbonation, and a nice head that settled fairly quickly. There was a fair amount of lacing left as I worked my way through this, with a few thin rings being visible in the middle of my pint glass. Not much of an aroma to this but the taste was much better than I anticipated. No indicating of sourness, filler, or "skunk". Not a dry mouthfeel to this as the consistency was quite wet while still being grainy. Lots of bread here with a hint of grain, but this wasn't too filling enough to be a stylistic misnomer. Maybe, there was even a hint of wheat?

The alcohol was where I expected it to be and there wasn't a point where I could feel it in the taste. This was much better than other examples of the style that I've had and should I find it again, I''d give it another go. This will be on my list of "guilty pleasure" beers, like Pabst Blue Ribbon and Miller High Life and sometimes, it's good to have something light that's also refreshing and enjoyable. For me, this certainly fit that bill.
