UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Keg at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Clear golden colour with creamy white head. Aroma is sweet cereal malt, citrusy lemon peel and grain. Taste is citrusy lemon and well balanced with sweet malt, little buttery too. Light bodied and smooth texture. A bitter, citrusy finish. One of the better lagers from a good brewery.

Aroma: grain and cereal malts, some floral hops. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light to medium bitter. Palate: bitters become quite pronounced, floral hops dominating the usual grain malts. Overall: surprisingly nice Pale Lager, indeed quite hoppy in plate and aroma. Bottle at Pachamama, Marylebone.
