Appearance – Clear golden colour, good frothing of a white head but this does not last long and soon dies to a finger nail ring that leaves no lacing.

Smell – Light almost undetectable nose of malted grain followed by an odd stewed leaf smell and a sort of musty element.

Taste – Crisp and grainy, rather smooth and pretty refreshing. The malts are pretty sweet overall if a little mild there is a slight biscuit flavour in here and the slightest hint of hop.

Mouthfeel – Light to moderate body. Slightly astringent. The linger is not amazing but for an adjunct Lager this is to be expected and even pretty on style.

Overall – A Pretty straight up beer. Nothing huge in terms of flavour but bearing in mind the style this is to be expected. So this beer is doing what the style asks of it and it is doing it better than most in the category.
