1.1/5  rDev -62.7%
look: 1 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Terrible looking in almost every respect. Light amber coloured & clear with tonnes of large bubbles rising to the surface in what can only be decribed as an aggressive fashion. It forms a thumb sized, bubbly white head that disappears almost instantly & leaves a fine film around the brim of the glass. Truely shocking looking, I can't think of a worse looking beer.

It smells like a pale lager but without any of the positive aromas that come with the style. A bad combination of grain & bread here that makes me wish I had avoided this particular beer.

I wouldn't have though it possible but it actually tastes worse than it smells with the taste consisting of nothing but grain & corn. This is finished with a musty, off tasting flavour that lingers for far too long despite the beer still being well in date.

Rough on the palate & kind of musty. Despite the huge amount of bubbles rising to the surface the beer was still incredibly flat & generally terrible with regards to mouthfeel.

Truely one of the worst beers I have ever tasted, the only good thing about it was that I wasn't physically sick after taking a sip & it didn't seem to hurt my stomach as I drank it (or the three mouthfulls I took anyway). Avoid this one at all costs, it is shockingly terrible.

Coming in a slim 500ml brown bottle, BB May 2012, served chilled in a pint-size pilsner glass. NOTE: this lager is brewed using Maris Otter malts.

A: burnished golden hue, coming with a fluffy off-white beer head and abundant fizziness.
S: lightly dusty, sweet orangey hops plus English pale malts (with that stinky edge, yes, not lager malts), plus salty-sweet yellow prunes and a touch of caramel; a clean edge of saltiness typical to a lager beer is apparent in the background, but not assertive. The overall impression of this beer reminds me of a lot of golden bitter/ales these days actually.
T: far more English pale-malty than any other continental lager on the palate (again, the pale malts with that stinky edge), coupled with boiled taro, caramel, orangey and grassy hops with rough bitterness lingering in the end; a flow of nice grainy note seems to linger nicely as well, adding extra pleasure in the aftertaste.
M&D: not so fizzy on the palate as in appearance, this medium-bodied lager beer is really like a golden ale, maybe due to the flavour profile defined strongly by the English ingredients. Although I can't easily compare it with any other continental lager I've tried, I have to say this is not a very bad product, either. Quite drinkable.
