look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a light yellow color with a small head that fades to no lacing.

S: Aroma of malt sweetness, grain and bit of citrus in the background.

T: Taste is similar with some malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a quite dry finish.

F: Light body, crisp and refresing.

O: Reminds me of a run of the mill Euro Lager. Drinkable but there are much better beers available in NZ.

330ml Bottle from The Cave, Glasgow (£1):
Clear, pale straw colour with a foamy, quite thin white head on top that holds pretty well.

Corn and lager malt aroma that has a touch of grassy hops and a skunky bitterness to follow this up. There was some grain too and a very small hint of sweetness but other than that there wasn't a whole lot going on really.

Bland with some corn and cheap malts. There is some grain and a hint of sweetness with some grassy hops that makes it come out a lot like the nose but other than that there isn't anything to say about this one. Not offensive just bland and basic.

Light, smooth and clean taste. The beer is pretty bland with some touches of sweetness and as a result of this the beer is quite easy to drink. There is some bitterness in the crisp, dry finish.

As expected to be honest, a basic and cheap lager that isn't quite as bad as some of the mass produced ones I've tried over the years. It's not great but it is by no means the worst and it was pretty easy to drink. Definitely not one worth picking up but not quite drain pour either thankfully.
