look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden body with lots of rising bubbles. A white head recedes to a film with no lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts interrupted by green bottle skunk.

Taste: A more grainy body than the aroma indicated, a touch of skunkiness before a subtle sour hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and dry.

Overall: If I'm going to drink a green bottled lager, I'll choose any beer but this one next time, if there ever will be a next time.

Only reason I would ever drink this crap is because it is the only - blind - option on tap at Bengal Brasserie, Wetherby... I felt sick from the oily old hops... beer does go with curry: ipa perhaps I am told, but this does nothing to support the dishes at all.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with about two fingers of white foam that soon settles down to only a small patch.
There is the basic malty and grainy aroma, easily picked up.
The taste starts sweet. It's followed by a neutral body, finishing with a slightly metaly bitterness. Slightly watery.
OK and drinkable, but not much taste there.
