Had on keg. A mate convinced me to buy this beer (I try to buy mostly cask ales), and I was certainly not disappointed. Such character for a lager! So many citrus fruits and summer flowers. Not in the least disappointed I had a half.

Gold, thin head. A lot more citra hops in the aroma than in the taste. Crisp, clean lager. Not bad for the style.

Scopey (6714) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Keg at Euston Tap. It pours clear golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is orange squash, grapefruit, grass and leaf. The taste is orange, grass, leaf, dough, straw, hay and metal, with a crisp, dry finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Clean and crisp; a very good pseudo-lager.

BenH (2258) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2012
Keg at York tap. Golden with a proud white head that doesn’t budge. Big citra aroma, lots of grapefruit, some guava and distinct citra aroma. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma but still very hoppy, some caramel malt flavour comes through, lots of grapefruit. Cold and refreshingly fizzy with a crisp clean finish. Really enjoyed this

Draught keg at Pivo, York. Gold body. Large white head. Hoppy, aromatic flowery hops, pine resin. Bitter. Dry finish. Probably wouldn’t have guessed it was a lager, seemed more like a golden ale.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Keg at York Tap. Pours a clear orange, finger of pillowy head. Aroma is juicy citrus and breadiness. Taste is similar, with a bit more bread. Crisp, dry, very refreshing. Not outstanding, but perfectly good. I like.

Keg at York Tap. Slightly hazy orange with a big fluffy white head. Big Citra nose, grassy hop, passionfruit, big lemon. Juicy front, very prickly carbonation, passion fruit juiciness and a mild, rounded hop bitterness. Not bad at all.

Off cask at the Sheffield tap. Not a lager I’m used to. Lots of citrus and in no way too fizzy. Very nice.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Clear, rich gold with a slight head. Huge, pungent hop aroma, orange, grapefruit, heavy resins and pine. Pretty sweet, rich flavor, some honey maltiness, and tons of hops, heavy pine, earth. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Semi-sticky hop finish, deeply resinous, some nicely toasted malts, bread, a little salt and citra come through. Brilliant stuff. High marks. Would never guess this is a lager. (For the record, I love lagers.)
