sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, - NOV 7, 2012
50cl bottle, BB 02/2014. Dorée, col blanc épais. Arôme est houblonné bien fleuri et frais rappelant les pissenlit, malt dans le style très anglais. Palais est agréablement houblonné et fleuri laissant une amertume légère dans le style anglais ici avec le côté Goldings/Challenger pour ce côté frais agrumes. Légère se terminant sur une petite pointe biscuité.

Keg. Pours pale gold. Light hop aroma with touch of lemon and flowers. Light and crisp with mild fruity bitterness. Probably the best British larger out there.

WaddlingPlatypus (128) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016

Boxereddy (476) - BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2016
Helder goudgeel bier met een romige witte schuimkraag. Aroma van mout (enigszins biscuit) en hop bitter. Smaak is net als het aroma. Licht mondgevoel met licht koolzuur en een licht droge afdronk.

CraftBeerNick (1920) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle at home in the garden, 19th July 2016. Pours clear, dark amber. Aroma is yeast, hops. Taste is clean, hops come through, it’s highly drinkable, a hoppy style lager. Good

EugeneStraver (166) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
HOME 17062016 (33 cl bottle): A brilliant yellow coloured beer with a good creamy white head. Aroma of malt (somewhat biscuit) and hop bitter. Taste is like the aroma. A nice lager, but not too fresh, because of the somewhat malty taste. Palate is somewhat sticky, grain malt and light dry bitter.

DeanF (2348) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2016
Has a good sour and umami aroma, unique for a lager and appetizing. No head, but an okay gold body. Good lager flavours, again nothing to distinguish but quite refreshing. Crisp finish. This is a fine lager, highly drinkable.

Bottle from Morrison's, Fort William 160622. Medium golden clear amber, firm creamy white head. Malty nose. Nice crisp bitter resins with herbal notes but no citrus. Excellent lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: herbs and some pine. Appearance: golden color and white head. Taste: medium herbal bitterness, pine, flowers, heather, some malty backbone. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, herbal. Overall: Flowers and herbs, that’s all.

Lloydy (100) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
500ml bottle. Again, lager is not my favourite style of beer, but this is a good example of the genre. Miles better than mass market dishwater like Carling, Fosters, Cobra etc.
