harrisoni (13710) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2007
500ml bottle from May’s Organic shop in Lewes. Gold colour with thin white head. Fairly awful to start with but the hop on the finish does come through. Bit toasty on aroma, bit thin and tinny in mouth. As a blonde ale, it might work, but as a lager, apart from that decent hop finish, there isn’t too much.

Maria (10149) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2007
This straw colored lager has a nice color and head and the aroma has notes of malt and hops. It is quite uncomplicated, easy to drink and the flavour is quite Ok with notes of flower, malt and hops, that leaves a nice, light bitterness, that lasts through the rater long finish.

johndoughty (3979) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2005
Golden appearance with a crisp edge to it. After this its all downhill.For an organic beer it tasted quite stale even though well within its use by date.Some traces of flora but really quite a boring beer. I felt quite let down after trying this one.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2005
Bottle. Pale still lager with little head. The aroma is very light, hardly dry and very slightly malty. The flavour is very weak and watery with only a hint of dry and bitterness. Overall a very disappointing beer.

I just look at my rating style and think, i wonder how many beers iv rated : 6 3 6 3 12. Well its a good way to discribe a medioca beer anyway. Aroma has malt and corn kickin about. Taste is smoother, though minimal, with bbother aromas having a wee say.
