Stumblor (64) - - JUN 19, 2013
Pours clear pale yellow with a decent head. Smell slightly bitter, with a very lager aroma. Metallic almost. Taste is bright and lemony, grapes, but not particularly flavorful. Pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DanielBrown (3717) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Hand pulled at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Golden. Drying flavour - like flayed skin resting on the back of a barn door in Poland. A ’UK’ flavour hops wise, which means a bit of flecked fruit skin, with some calligraphers’ handbook. OK. Outflanked.

Yeasty, bitter and slightly unpleasant on the palate, in fact it gets worse the further down the pint you get
