2.8/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pale yellow colour, just over one finger of white head, lots of lace on the glass. Smell is lightly grassy and floral, but everything else suggests malt sandwich, grainy with some graham cracker as well, some earthy hops as well. Taste is fruity and malty, a little on the sweet side, light lingering bitterness in the finish, biscuity and grainy aftertaste but slightly bland. Medium to high carbonation, light-med body, OK feel. This is a little better than some examples of style but nothing impressive here to say the least.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

(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

Serving type: on-tap
