3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1st bottle in my random lager night and I really enjoyed it. 330ml into a Veltins badged stemmed tulip on my patio after working in the garden all day. Reminded me of Andechs Vollbier Hell in looks and smell, a bit more citrusy in taste though. Refreshing, clean and thirst quenching with that citrus bite to give it a better overall depth and character. One of the best lagers I have had for a while. Hope the next two on the planned tasting are as good.

Bottle, 0.33l. Clear straw color with medium creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, other tropical fruits and cereals. Taste starts with light sweet maltiness, follows by pleasant fruity and grainy acidity, mouthfeel is a bit spicy, while finish is medium bitter. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Beer Lord, if you insist we drink lagers, please serve us with such hybrids :)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Harpenden Arms, Harpenden. Mid to dark yellow, small white head. Scent of orange/lemon and hay. Balanced. Taste is just the right side of sweet without being cloying. Also just the right amount of carbonation to pep up the mouthfeel. Light grainy hops in the aftertaste. A good beer on a summer day.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Another well established brewery trying to act like craft. Golden and clear. Dry but not a lot of flavour. The word average was designed for this beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in the Holly Bush NW3. Light golden colour, high carbonation. Very clean crisp lager. Successfully avoids the grim chemically feel of a standard lager, but is somewhat lacking in hop flavour.
