2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly darker gold, thin ish head, aroma slight sweet citrus fruit/herbal. Tastete to follow fairly bitter finish. Strong flavoured lager ale cross over type thing. I wouldn’t neck loads as strong on the flavour but Nice and bit different.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle @ JDW Montgomery’s Tower, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy orange, white head. Sweet marmalade nose. Continues to the taste with a sweet marmalade character. Doesn’t really appear to be standard lager. Bit too bitter and sweet for me. Couldn’t finish. Don’t like marmalade either.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from my local Wetherspoons on 10th March 2016. An average try at a Pilsner/Lager styles beer: looked fine, golden, clear and clean with a small white head. A little hop aroma and taste, but not a lot going on really. Hoped for better from a brewery I have praised before.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a clear amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grass, some orange, subtle bready malt but slightly husky. Taste of caramel, some bready malt, slight mineral, a little grapefruit, maybe orange and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, crisp, slight orange and grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Weird aroma but the taste is actually quite nice. Sweet malts and slight citrus and grassy hops. Ok.
