AshtonMcCobb (2465) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle at the Lochview Motel. Pours lemon with some head. The nose is mostly pale malt - like porridge oats in a way. The taste has more of the pale malt but with a citrus zing on the end. The palate has a light body, with a creamier than expected texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall, this was better to go back to than I expected.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 Too dry for my liking and average at best in the falvour department. Iím not really a pilsener fan, I had no other choice. Didnít like it much but I did get to stare at a fit chavvy lady while I drunk it. And United won.
