Well bottom Line here is they use a very pale malt, minimum hops and a decent brewing process. A clean taste but low on it. Very low malt flavor at all and not much in the way of hopiness. Kind of lame compared to Haper lager or real continental lagers.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Bright golden color with a thick head that would not go away (even 30 minutes later) and leaving laces, to make any true Pilsner envy.
Very light aroma of bready malt and very distant floral hops.
Sweet flavor of pale malt and corn with floral and herbal hops. A little cardboard on the finish.
Light body with good carbonation.
An adjunct lager a bit over average.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

Appearance: Bright yellow, 1.5 finger white head, slowly receding.
Smell: Does this smell like cabbage? Or am I prejudiced because it's an English lager? Not something I like anyway.
Taste: Malty… cabbage something. With a very light touch of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light body, light to medium carbonation; watery texture with an slight oily aftertaste. Water and oil DO mix, it seems!
Drinkability: To some people this would be a sessionable beer; these are not people I would want as friends...

Serving type: can

Typical British Lager. Load of chemicals to give a truly bad taste. Avoid it like the plague. I used to drink it where there was literally no choice. With old age has come wisdom and now I just refuse to drink it. It is just as bad in can and bottle.

It's hard to find anything good to say about this stuff. It is almost completely without taste, odour or colour.

Yes I know it's only a Pils, so just what do you expect of it? But there are Pilsen style beers that taste like some hops have been waved at them at some point during the production process. There are Pilseners that show some care and skill in the making of them. This is not one of those, however.

It says a lot about the power of advertising that this rubbish sells in such vast quantities. For me, it's tasteless, vapid and pointless. An utter waste of time and money, to be ranked with the very worst Australian lagers. Avoid at all costs.
