worldbeertaste (1741) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Golden creamy and light with hints of fruit in the taste. As pilsners go it’s nice and easy to drink with no real negative comments except that it’s boring.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle from Arden Wines watching England on the box. Deep gold finely crowned. Lightly buttered digestive, fennel and orange nose. Floral juicy satsuma flavour drizzled with honey. Sweet and lady-like with gelatinous wine gum and perfumed herb. Buttered rusk. Too floral and buttery for a lager but a worthy effort.

Light copper hazy, thin white head. Smell of caramel, hay, hints of grass and light malts, maybe a touch of cooked corn. Light sweet, crisp, dry, hints of caramel. Moderate bitter. Quite ok

Garrold (2603) - 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.
