worldbeertaste (1548) - - OCT 20, 2012
Clear pale thin light goldish orange with a white soapy thin lacy lasting head. Smells stale, with light hops, citrus, flowery and malt. Medium to full thin body. Tastes of sweet grape, light chewy malt, hay with a soft hop bitter finish. More complex than it seems. With some melon and a bit of corn. Decent and interesting.

miquelcrush (40) - Granollers, SPAIN - APR 14, 2014
Molt bona lager, molt bon aroma i molt bon gust. És una cervesa que acompanya molt bé amb qualsevol tipus de menjar. Muy buena lager, con un buen aroma y gusto. Es una cerveza que acompańa muy bien con cualquier comida.

allmyvinyl (2173) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2014
500ml bottle form Tesco. Pours clear gold with a short-lived white head. Aromas of cereal, grains, hay, lemon. Taste has more of the same, light bitterness. Medium bodied, clean finish. Not bad.

tomekk1978 (272) - POLAND - APR 12, 2014
Barwa: słomkowa, lekko zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, niezbyt ofita, szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: słodowy, zbożowy, z akcentami chmielowymi (grejpfrut, owoce tropikalne, zioła). Nieco bardziej łagodny niż w Bitter & Twisted. Po chwili jednak wyczuwalne lekkie nuty utlenienia, obniżające wrażenie ogólne. Smak: słodowy, owocowy, całkiem rześki. Dość lekki, przypominający czeskie czy niemieckie piwa. Goryczka poniżej średniej.

Mr_Pink_152 (274) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
330ml bottle from Waitrose. Pale gold with a fluffy white head. Nice lager some some hops in the aroma and flavour.

ericdevin (591) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle from John’s Market via Phil. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, little to no head. Bread, citrus in nose, slight. Body soft, with a citric pie crust bitterness in the finish. Plenty enjoyable, would be better on draft?

HeistAlmighty (1042) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
500ml (I think) bottle. Moderate sticky head, blond colour, slightly hazy. Herbal hop aroma, apple lager malt. Hopsy for a lager, slight cardboard and grain. Crisp body. Overall, a very well made lager, much more flavourful than a macro lager.

mr_h (2437) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2014
500ml bottle at home - clear deep golden, thin off-white head with small bubbles, pale malty, yeasty aroma, no lacing, corn, mild yeast, very high carbonation, malty and metallic aftertaste

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Pours golden and clear. Hoppy nose with a hint of caramel and sweet malts. An earl grey tea herbal/perfume going on with the palate with a passion fruit/lychee tartness. One of the best lagers in the market place.

gegwilson (621) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Bottle from Booths Ripon. Usual golden looks of a lager. Reasonably flavoursome for a lager, but still pretty bland to me. Refreshing, but unremarkable.

jaghana (3500) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is cereal and malt and alcoholic like. Aroma is on light caramel, nutty, metallic, water, medium bitterness, finish is slightly fruity and honey hints.
