June 2016 - Can share in deepest Croydonia as ’Infamous Hijack’. Thanks to Leighton for supplying the goods. Dark yellow, clear, still, dense foamy white head. Aroma is airy, light malt, nothing really going on. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is watery, light and clean, sodawater, cracker malts, thin malt sugars. Nothing to see here. Someone has replaced my beer with sodawater. (2.3)

Scopey’s grand vertical. Thanks to Leighton for this Can. Light haze on this paleish gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Light malts, yes some CREAM, light floral sweetness. Mild lemony citrus. Whisper of candy fruits. Not bad.

dlihcsnatas (624) - Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Hazy yellow brew with nice fluffy head. Looks good but smells like one of those sour beers and the taste is very tart and leaves a bad aftertaste. Another beer that wish I had found it in a single so I wouldn’t have 5 more to drink.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains with light bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with cereal grains. Pretty one dimensional.

Draft at the source. Clear gold, soft carbonation. Aroma is light grain, nothing more.

The body is light with a mild grain bill. Sweet grain and honey. No hop bitterness as Most in the style don’t have. Easy and straight forward.
