GoufCustom (1531) - HONG KONG - APR 26, 2016


330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Clear light golden colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Pungent aroma of Lager malt, with grains, floral, light molasses, biscuits, lemon and light grass; Light sweet taste of fair Lager malt, with light grains, floral, molasses notes, herbs, very light spices, dry biscuits, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body. Slick palate; Mouth Feel is fair Pils maltyness in a fairly thin but slick background. Then dry maltyness taste come full on with floral hops. Low sweet, strong herbal and light spicy. Good lemon to round. Pretty good!… Hoppiness is floral, lemon and light grass in nose, and same in taste with strong herbs and light spice; Bitterness is fairly strong for a lasting, mid-astringent herbal bitter finish; Quite dry after atste. Biscuity and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: On the surface, this one feels like a regular macro Lager, but its taste is where it shrines: strong maltyness, low sweetness and strong herbal lemony hops. Enjoyable, through not very crafty. Okay.

good for a lager...crisp feel with light corn, grassy hops and a touch of sweet citrus perhaps. OK feel that finishes so so.

johndoughty (4874) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle. Yellow and very clear. Small head that quickly turns into no head. Quite interesting flavours at first but soon degenerates and becomes quite boring. Expected better.

Bright clear gold beer, good white head. Palate starts smooth but has a fine minerally crispness on the back end. Light pale malts. Hops are mild to medium citrus with smooth pine and a little hop spice. Smooth dry finish. Nice but could be a tad crisper.
