3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hmmm... Somehow, I expected this to have been rated a little higher by other raters. It’s been around for ages, and seems fairly well thought of locally, in the North East of England, with beer people I talk to. I just never got round to it, not finding it on draught until installed at the Fat Hippo in Newcastle: I had a pint and a half there last night. Beautiful bright gold, with a white head that faded to leave lacing around the glass. Digestive biscuit and floral aroma. Well balanced bitter-sweet flavour, again with floral notes. Definitely crisp and refreshing, and fuller bodied than most pilsners. Given my affection for this style of beer, I found this an unalloyed pleasure, but I can understand others might be a bit more critical, and underwhelmed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours carbonated clear copper with a pure white foam head. Aroma is bitter hops and straw/wheat. Tasts is very similar to a czech style pilsner lager, plenty of bitter herbal hops, straw, grass and a dry bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Pretty tasty, and unusual to find such a well made lager.

Cask@Market Porter, London. Slightly hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, vanillaish and mildly vanilaish. Flavour is being quite much the same in a nice balance. Is this really a pils? Tastes more like a golden ale to me.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Lime, biscuity malt and grain in the aroma. Lemon, lime, tea and some earthy notes in the taste. Drinkable enough, but I feel it’s lacking something overall.
