From can, pours a bright golden colour with a head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of grain and a slightly fruity. It was definately a nice flavorful brew

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Never really felt like a lager to me, which was a good thing. Had to much taste to be a lager. Had a nice pale malt taste to it with bread and hay. Aftertaste was of mild hopping and was very refreshing on my parent’s veranda, but most beers are. Impressive for a lager to say the least.

Not terrible? Pretty great for a Pale Lager if you ask me. Not much to say, inoffensive and hugely preferable to most offerings of the style to be had around here. It has sweet honey, corn, grass, hay and cereal going for it. Crisp feel and lively carbonation. This lager has more positives than most lagers can claim.

Draft. Pours blonde as the name would suggest. Thin fizzy white head. Mild malt aroma. Taste is fairly thin too, malt, some hay and cereal. Body is a bit watery.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Nose and flavour brings out biscuity notes, sweet cereal malts, and a mild floral hop content. Easy drinking, but pretty weak. Decent.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is pretty papery. Honeyed grain. The taste is of white grape, some bread slathered in honey. fizzy light body. A touch tinny. Overall, not completely offensive.
