3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle bought at Food Wise in Shek Wui Hui, Sheung Shui.
Clear light blonde colour; One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Good sticky lacing with active carbonation; Slightly pungent and sweet aroma of Lager malt, with strong apricots, strong honey, floral, sugar, bread, light spices, lemon and strong grass; Medium sweet taste of Lager malt, with honey, strong floral, molasses, dry bread, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass;
Light body. Thin but slick palate; Mouth Feel is fairly good Lager maltyness in a watery but slick background. Strong honey and floral up front but ultimately dominated by strong glassy bitter hops, which balanced the sweetness nicely. Strong lemon to round. Slim but nice!... Hoppiness is strong apricots, floral, light spices, lemon and strong grass in nose. Strong floral, strong lemon and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent and bitter sweet finish; Fairly dry after taste. Sweet malty and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one is a pretty well-made Lager. Light body aside, it has good maltyness, nice yellow fruit and honey aroma, clean sweetness fully balanced by strong bitter grassy hoppiness. Well-suited as good light refreshment. Nice one!

Pours an almost clear yellow, vibrant with colour, with a white head. Flavour and smell fall flat, though still a refreshing drink.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Lightly hazed with an extremely thin head. Has a mild fizz in the palate with a crisp, lager-malt fruitiness, but not overly stated in the latter aspect. Blonde in colour, but not really in style.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit fizzy as you'd expect. Quite a flowery taste but hardly any aroma. Very sweet and tastes like sweet honey.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dissapointingly lacking in both carbonation and freshness. Never sure about Scottish breweries adopting a blonde. Improved slightly as the glass emptied - but expected better.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Bit wishy washy but did like it. Nothing spectacular but passable and would like to try in draught if done. No head retention. Lager lookalike. Bit floral citrus . Improved as it warmed

500ml, brown bottle, cork and cask. Pours light pale with a thin white head subsiding quickly. Scent is light pale malt. Taste is light lager, little skunk. Little bitter. Finish is little acid/vomit. Fine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @home. Pours yellow with a thin-ish white head. Almost wine like on the nose, odd, some grass/hay notes. Nice bitterness to the finish with a touch of caramel sweetness.
