That’ll be me 20K then! @ ChrisO’s. Can thanks to Dan the Man. Bright clear paleish gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crispy. A fairly floral lager with a nice touch of lemony citrus. The light dry finish brings a touch of citric peel . Not bad at all!

Leighton (18010) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Can shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting - London. Pours with almost no colour, just a slight yellow tinge, and a creamy, white head. Lightly sweet, with notes of dried cereal and straw. Light in body with average carbonation. Drying on the finish, with some papery notes, hay, cereal. Quite basic.

harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2015
Can from Prince International Supermarket, Ashford. Pale gold lasting white head. Some lemon on the aroma. Bit thin in the mouth for sure. But no off aromas or flavours. It’s very light, bordering on the light lemony water. Not any real bite on the finish. Nothing wrong with it, perfectly fine. Creamy mouthfeel.

Koelschtrinker (16422) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Süßlich-getreidiger Antrunk. Leicht würzig, frisch. Im Mittelteil angenehm herb, mild aber noch ok. Im Abgang bitterer werdend, pricklend und grasig. Das Bier ist hier kräftiger, mittel-würzig aber eher weich. Im Abgang weitet sich der Hopfen etwas aus. Ein normales Pils, für Rumänien ziemlich gut! Test vom 13.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,9,9,9,8,9 - 8,85

Pale yellow color, small white head. Corn-malty, skunky nose. Fizzy. Corn, skunky hops, grainy notes. Not much else, a bit like a tropical lager.
