Cask at Counting House. Hazy pour, though it does clear. Golden colour and thick white head. Light citrus smell. Flavour is crisp, sour lemon, hops and as mentioned in other posts an almost earthy, smoky taste underneath all that too. Quite a creamy mouthfeel too. Nice, interesting lager.

Cask at Ship Inn North Berwick. Lovely and smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. I agree with comment about subtle undertones of perhaps smoke. Few went down well

Surprisingly smokey aromatic undertones, given that this isn't a dark. Syrupy on the palate and quite smooth.

Cask at the Stein Inn, Isle of Skye, Scotland. Pours orange with very small white head. Malty and lightly hoppy. Looking other ratings there is a chance something was wrong with this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 20, 2014 - handpull at Craft Beer Co (Islington). Deep clear refractive gold with a very small bubbly off-white head. Light and somewhat fruity aroma with some light green not-very-acidic hop bitterness, not much alcohol - sort of grassy, but sort of not; has a bit of a "tang" to it Taste is simple - grassy, slightly tart, with a hint of green apple and a slightly larger hint of appleseed. Light, slick body, building bitterness, a little still, nice dry and somewhat bitter longish aftertaste. I quite enjoyed this.

Smooth malty beginning. Fresh, grainy, smooth with hints of lemon. The aftertaste is smooth, malty-grainy. Nice.
