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.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Fruity, grainy aroma and a sweet light hay taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

RichardGretton (4177) - 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.

leaparsons (7801) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2005
Bottle. Lost half of this beer upon an explosive opening. What I had left was golden with a bubbly white head. Aromas are butter malts with grain and some fruitiness, floral in its hopping and quite dry. Flavours are soft, sweet biscuit malts with peppery hops and hints of fruit. Surprisingly floral in its hopping with a dry aftertaste. A little thin in body but refreshing. A decent UK lager.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Oddly enough this comes in a bottle of German-/Czech-style. And to add to its multinationalism its brewed with organic hops from New Zealand! Amber-coloured, slightly hazy, decent head. Fresh and very fruity without much bitterness. Some underlying tartness. Reminds me of a good brewpub-style lager. 010104

Looks good, clean & golden good steady bead, head is a bit thin but it lasts well. Aroma is slightly fruity...not much else to say about that really. Soft malt dominates the palate, hops only noticable with a hint of citrussy fruit on the finish. Overall a fine lager, lacks a bit on the hop front tho. This was bought at Moffat Wine Shop not that far from the brewery( bbe march 2006 if your interested) Label is a bit of a departure for this brewery.

(on bottle) My fav Pale Laer, witch is a style with alot of baaaad beer in it. This is a easydrinkable, full, well hopped lager. Has a hint of cardemmome in the nice malty nose. fat, full motuhfeel and a good carbonation. Im gonna hit my lager swilling pals with this one for sure.
