look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
On tap served cold (as opposed to regular, per the bar maid) at The Horseshoe Bar, Glasgow, Scotland, April 20, 2009:
A: The beer appeared a very nice clear golden color with a very nice white head with active carbonation streaming to the top. A thin layer of the head was retained throughout the beer.
S: The beer gave off a nice sweet, grain aroma with a hint of bread or biscuit to it and a very light hop hint. Very well put together.
T: The taste is good and way better than anything that BMC could produce (and I am really starting to dig the lager again. Honestly, I don't think that it gets the credit it deserves). The taste has a nice grain/malt quality to it. You also get a little sweetness and a touch of the hops, but very much in the background.
M/D: The beer has a light body to it, but clean, crisp and very refreshing. The beer is very smooth and very easy to drink. I probably could have sat there for awhile and had a few more (but there was more of Glasgow to see and more pubs to hit) Overall, a good beer and one I would order again.
Serving type: on-tap

(on tap at Victoria Freehouse - served in a 20 oz proper pint)
A: pale gold color, nearly perfectly clear... open-structured white foam on the pour, quietly settles out to barely an outer ring, little lacing...
S: not much to excite... flowery notes, final mash runnings... water from an old, rusted (iron) faucet... perhaps a touch of dinner roll crust... maybe it's the glass, but I can hardly smell a thing
T: foundation of mild, fresh pale malt flavors - I wouldn't be able to suggest any complexity to the malt flavors other than to say it tastes like dried-out pils malt - no "bready" or "biscuity" or other qualities of the like... perhaps a slight earthy hop presence... mild mineral and hop bitterness to balance... doesn't taste watery or watered-down, doesn't have any discernible fruity character - but the overall intensity of flavor, even as it warms, is very mild
M: around light-medium bodied - on the lighter end between thin and medium, slight roundness... crisp, clean, without any fizzy bite or malty roll
O: had this last about 5 years ago in the UK - that was the "velvet" lager (nitro?) draft offering... this isn't all that bad, it's serviceable - thankfully has some malt flavor, to provide a modicum of interest
