Difficult to give an accurate deScription of the beer fresh out of the liquor store; as this was cellared for close to two years before I got to it. Pours golden with a loose white head. Contains flecks like a trappist beer but that may be due to age. Sweet, fruity malts with grains blended in nicely. Lightly hopped. Thick, creamy palate is the way that a lager should taste.

The best beer that was on offer on a day of bad beers while watching the darts at the Lakeside. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Some caramel and biscuit malt flavours and some citrus on the finish. This is quite flavoursome for a lager, but it’s still a bit on the bland side. OK but i’d hoped for something more.

On draft. Golden pour with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malts with mild hops. Flavor is crisp, clean, with a slight hop presence towards the back end. Light to medium bodied with above average carbonation. Overall. Nice.

willisread (1603) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
Tap at the Aldgate. Sweetish malt nose with some light pepper and slight fruity esters. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Prickly bitterness on the finish with pepper and a hint of lemongrass.

0,5 l Flasche. Kräftiges Aroma, malzig süß, hopfig. Erscheinung: Dunkelgelbes Bier, flacher, grobporiger Schaum, der schnell abbaut. Geschmack: Süßlich, säuerlich, dezent bitter, recht weich. Nachgeschmack: Leicht wässrig. Gesamt: Gutes Bier, ich bin in Relation zu seinem Ruf aber etwas enttäuscht.
