Helder goud. Tja, na alle ola dubhs is dit natuurlijk niet geweldig. Maar ja, de rest was op. Later nog maar eens reraten want het smaakt nu nergens naar.

The_Osprey (3841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
330ml bottle, 4.8% BB Feb 2017. Orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is a little papery and metallic but there’s demerara sugar and pithy citrus in there too. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation, just slightly foamy. Taste is semisweet, straw and some thin syrup, nice crisp finish, dry but not really bitter. Pleasant lager. You could drink tonnes of this without noticing.

77ships (5900) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
330 ml. bottle. Purchased @Malt Attacks. BBF 12/2016. Back of the label actually calls this the “Champagne of Lagers”. Hazy apple / stereotypical golden, small solid white head. Nose is vegetable, vegetable & floral bitter, weeds, the main note is vegetable, light white pepper. Taste is lightly milky, touch butter, vegetable bitter, weeds, floral, light grass, milky cooked vegetable / cabbage quality, some wet paper,… There are definitely some hops here. Some milky creamy character. Too vegetable & vegetable bitter for me. I sort of hoped for me. Step above your average pale lager, that isn’t much of a compliment I suppose.

ThirstyBird (2258) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Pours a clear golden yellow with a pillowy top. The smell is grain, grass...smells crisp and clean. The taste is grain and grass...some bitterness in the middle lingering and combining with dryness on the end. Light+ in body with fine, active carbonation. I think it will go well with the burritos on my plat!

On Tap. Nice grassy aroma, bitter small, but well-hop feel. Pleasant refreshing in hot weather.

eastkenttom (109) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Not into this at all. It’s way to bitter on the palate. Trying too hard to impress and leaves a twisted tang on the middle of the tongue and roof of the mouth. 5.5/10.

fredfa (118) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - JUL 20, 2015
Estava ansioso em prová-la já que é considerada por alguns como uma das melhores lager do mundo. O aroma é maltado e gostoso bem acima do padrão do estilo. Já o sabor, apesar de ser acima da média, não tem nada de excepcional. O ponto forte é a harmonia. Amargor na medida e é bem refrescante. Minha expectativa foi em excesso. Também não se pode esperar muita complexidade de uma lager. É uma boa breja que cumpre bem o seu papel

jjsint (1556) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants (Kings Parade). Dark deep yellow, quite fizzy with a loose white head. Aroma of grass and lemon, some tangerine, the tiniest hint of astringency. It has an excellent taste, however: sweet and refreshing with a bitter/herbal balancing note. The bitterness is more obvious in the finish. Orange peel in the finish and aftertaste. Nice.

ManVsBeer (6244) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Pale golden with a very light carbonation and next to no head. Has a very floral nose that’s not overly pleasant. Some lager malt is evident whilst retaining an ale-like texture.
