Tap @ Oliver Twist. Clear pale yellow with small white head. Fresh fruit and earthy yeast. Pale malts, hops and yeast. Light palate and lightlyvfizzy texture with long hoppy mouth. I wish all lagers were like this.

zimbo (754) - SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Sweet and sour with just a trace of that honey coming through. Golden with a short lasting head. Built like the Rana Plaza factory. Needs character.

nihtila (1727) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
23.10.2014. Clear golden. Aroma is a bit different, grain, malts and butter of lager but also some saison style yeast and citrus. Taste is also similar but a bit milder. Although different it still feels somehow unbalanced and strange. However, considering the abv its quite good.

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Keg at the Grain Store, Cambridge. Pours basic yellow with a respectable but not overblown white head. Citrus and vinegar funk in the aroma. Taste is much meter: sweet and clean with a minimal stroke of bitter citrus on the finish. Nicely carbonated palette. Ok.

17Beer (113) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Mild aroma of grass and hops with some sour notes.Pours golden with a persistent rocky white head. Light lacing. Tastes of grass and a sour lacquer taste. Nice fizzy carbonation and long sour finish. Well made, reminiscent of classic mass-produced German lagers, not my favorite

Garrold (2607) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Hazy, straw colour. About three bubbles doing their best to form a head. Light lemon. Bit of pineapple. Grainy malt. Taste is much the same. Dull, flat palate. Finishes dull and flat. Brewing beer using organic ingredients is very admirable, but when it turns out like this, I don’t want to drink it.

gegwilson (2104) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Pours blonde with a frothy white head. A little sweetness and citrus. Not bad for a lager style beer.
