Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - golden amber with a decent head.
Nose - citrus and some cut grass. Some sweet malt in the background.
Taste - citrus but mostly toffee.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown 500ml bottle: BBD 5th Apr 14, poured into a straight sided pint glass (Fosters logo’ed) @ home on 5th Nov 13.
Plenty of bubbles rising through the clear golden body: the head a lot deeper and denser than your regular European lager/pilsners and it stayed.
The aroma was a blend of mild citrus notes and light maltiness with the taste following on along those lines. Suited the ham sandwich and olives I had for lunch with it. drying hops appear towards the end of each sip giving the beer a fine, refreshing feel.
Good body depth for a lager based brew: makes a change for the head to stay until the end of a lager too (even with olive oils on my lips).
Recommended if you like to try different lagers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Live rate. 500ml bottle from Rhythm N’ Booze, Cleethorpes. Pours brilliant yellow gold with a pillow of white head. Nose lime and curry leaf hop; CO2, thistle sap. Proper Yorkshire watter indeed; JHB-like soapy lime and sap; bready undercarriage, clean bitter finish. Just the right balance of fizz and malt slickness. Way too much citrus for a lager but I’m not complaining. Impressive.
