Bottle.Orange and clear with a small head. Bit of and industrial taste with no real outstanding flavours. Not very inspiring.

Biroholik (821) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle to snifter @ White House, Luton
Kolor złoty, zamglony. Piana biała, kremowa, lekka. Drobne pęcherzyki, średni lacing. W aromacie słodowość, karmel, trochę kwiatów i ziół. Bardzo subtelny cytrus. Lekki diacetyl w tle. W smaku słodkie, słodowe z akcentami dojrzałych owoców. Chwilami metaliczny posmak w ustach. Goryczka niska do średniej, chmielowy finisz. Lekkie do średniego ciało. Słabizna. Ni to Pilsner, ni APA, ni Lager. Nie warte polecenia.

sm89walt (1937) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle. Clear, effervescent golden colour with a small and fading white head. Citrus, grass, straw, grain and pale malt aromas. Clean, crisp and fresh. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a soft to moderate length and intensity pithy citrus and grassy bitterness to finish.

Sigmund (6642) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2016
330 ml bottle at the Flying Horse, Gatwick Airport. ABV is 4.5%. Golden colour, large white head. Aroma of flowers, toffee, honey, hay and dust. Surprisingly malty flavour, again with hints of honey and toffee, and a sharpish hoppy bite in the finish.

Citrus and fruit aroma. Golden colour. Fair strength. Toffee hints in flavour with slight treacle hints. Not bad.

kerenmk (4032) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle at the Crown Rivers, Heathrow airport, 20.4.16. Clear gold with a white head. Hogs shit and margarine in the nose, lots of margarine and sweetness in the mouth. Medium body, fizzy, buttery finish. Appalling.

Grumbo (1219) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle at the Wetherspoon’s in Stansted Airport. Pours a hazy pale gold with a lasting white head. Aroma of hop, floral, with a hint of mint. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Finish has a lingering bitterness and lasting creamy feel. Enjoyable ’new English lager’.

ianwelby (1070) - SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Clear golden beer, lively white head. Light citrus smell. Taste is a touch hoppy, a splash of lemon but there’s a slightly unpleasant, mettalic-y backtaste. Okay but great.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Very cloudy and slightly yellow tinge. Fruity and lemony with a very bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheAleMale (33) - Worcester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle from the Brunnie. Pretty good for a Lager. More like an American Pale Ale to me. Very sweet also. Deserves better than the current average rating on here! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
