3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours polished pale yellow, mediocre head - I usually pour straight down to get what is there but this was not all that excited to be there - and mediocre lacing; the hype - bursting with hop-fueled taste? These guys brew Mayhem and Armageddon. Who do they think they are kidding? OK, not wild. Tart-ish and sem-dry; nose has hints of fruit and earth; medium body and slightly oily
Mayhem and Armageddon are hard acts to follow - especially in the IIPA starved desolation of the Long-ish White Cloud. But this is a decent Pale Lager. I’d call it a good session beer - there are trains home and lots of taxis

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.

Nice clear pale appearance and moderate aroma, fairly yeast and malt dominated with some hop coming through. Mild bitterness and smooth mouth feel. An enjoyable easy drinking lager.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s a lager but a very well made lager. Subtle all round. Some pleasant biscuit come through with a nice amount of sweetness. Great clear amber colour. Refreshing. A nice well made lager but have a epic pale ale straight after and you wonder why lager has been the most popular style for so long.
