Garrold (2271) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Clear gold. Bubbly, white head, that doesn’t hang about. Bit of a syrupy, custard thing going on. And that’s how it middles, and ends, really. Not great.

olliejobbins (1261) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
my favourite local "lager" for availability/price. clear gold pour with thin white head. aroma is weak citrus fruits, quite floral and crisp hops. smooth refreshing hoppy taste with a slightly citrussy after taste. yeah it’s not exciting but very easy to drink and refreshing.
