From a bottle. Mild peppery malt finish is interesting, minimal head and a faint aroma biscuit. Not too bad.

In short: average lager.
Pours clear deep gold with white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Cooked vegetables aromas. Light body, average carboantion, crispy texture. Taste is malty, herbal, some off flavours.

foxo82 (763) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle at Handmade Burger Co, Birmingham. Looks headless and fizzy, like sparkling apple juice. Bitter bready malt but a short finish, lacking depth.

Bootlegger007 (91) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2015
Light perfume aroma with hints of bubblegum, clear golden colour with a small diminishing head, good balance of malts and hops, cerials grains leaving a light bitter aftertaste, refreshing medium bodied session lager

ShivanDragon (1951) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
helder gouden met minimale witte kraag. aroma van graan...héél véél graan en veel mout. smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bitter, sterk, matig fruitig, sterk moutig en granige smaak, medium body, nee vind dit denk ik één van de mindere bieren van deze brouwer

Bottle from tesco. Rapidly dissipating head. Light clear golden appearance. Wins on taste.

Cask. Pours golden with a perfect head. Hints of citrus and medium malt. Finishes a bit sour. Great.
