LazyPyro (487) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden colour with a nice smooth creamy white head, long lasting too. No strong aromas from this, just some malt. Flavour is much the same, mainly malt but quite weak really, disappointing. On the plus side it is an extremely smooth beer. Kind of floral aftertaste, light bitterness. Overall nice but disappointingly weak and lagerish.

Sigmund (6542) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 28.04.2014. ABV is 4.5%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of grain and dust, a hint of fruit. Fairly refreshing flavour, lagerish with a slight citrussy fruitiness. Will rerate when I have a fresher bottle.

shoestring (350) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Dark amber lager colour. Head retention poor on this pint. Low carb. Actually easily sunk. Mild orange bitterness. Dry palate in finish. Would take again for sure

blackradioboy (173) - SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle from Asda (£1.50). A few years ago at the Scottish Beer Fest in Edinburgh, I had a pint of CG and it was one of the best beers I've ever had. This bottled version is quite the let-down - pretty watery and feeble in comparison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
