sm89walt (1932) - 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 (6382) - 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.

kerenmk (3910) - 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 (1173) - 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 (1021) - 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.

Very cloudy and slightly yellow tinge. Fruity and lemony with a very bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheAleMale (31) - 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

harrisoni (16849) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. Some butter on the aroma some noble style hop too. Light diacetyl on aroma only really. Some toffee in the mouth . Is this a lager yeast? Not awful but not really good either. Does feel like an ale yeast though. Butter toffee for me.
