prawlie (1205) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from the Grumpy Goat in Reading. Lightly gassy, amber, with little head. Sweet with a hint of bitterness, and some light malt. Inoffensive but no taste sensation. Not for me.

The_Osprey (2156) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Keg at Rising Sun. Short review, social. Pale yellow, clear, sparkling, small white head. Body is medium, slightly foamy, medium carbonation. Taste is light malt, metallic, soda water, slightly floral, light bitterness. A bit too metallic and watery, which makes it a below-average lager for me.

ForlornHope (117) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Malty aroma with some slight musty apple. Pours from 330 cl bottle with very little head and quickly goes flat. Orange gold in colour. Taste is sweet maltiness with very little bitter balance. No real carbonation and abrupt finish. Overall, not unpleasant but not that good either.

Rob_D_UK (1024) - Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. A touch of floral hop in the aroma and a crisp taste.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Bottled 19/07/14. A golden beer with a little white head. A bit of lychee in the hopping. Malts have sweetness but the fruitiness in the hops are overcoming that. Doesn’t have massive depth but it’s pretty nice.

JorgeLee (1294) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
On tap in the Kings Head W2. Light yellow colour, white head, decent carbonation. Very nice modern lager, quite crisp with a floral hop bitterness. Very moreish and refreshing.
