Cask at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardener. Aroma of cream, spice and vanilla. Tasty but lots of minerals and metal distract in the finish. Still nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, purchased relatively fresh from a new beer store. Pours a clear, light yellow color; fluffy, bright white head with excellent retention and medium-bubbled lacing. Crisp, clean aroma: minerals and citrus; a touch of dishsoap. Lively carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: dull citrus, minerals, and a touch of sugar; good presence in the mouth; just a touch boring, with scattered bitterness. Light-to-medium finish: citrus, minerals, and a touch of bread; ends dry.

Pours with a very thin, frothy, white head. Body is a fizzy, clear yellow. Head lasts about 1 minite 30 seconds before reverting to just a ring. Slightly fruity smelling lager with grassy hops. Watery and grassy till the end which is a bit metallic. Watery and fizzy mouthfeel. Not bad, but overall quite boring.
