Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 23, 2011
A very attractive looking drop with a nice golden hue and medium white head. The initial sips are refreshing with faint fruity notes, mainly ccitrus/lemon. As the beer goes down it loses a little of that zing for me. Would be a pretty decent session beer. I really like the appearance of the bottle.

kwik-lime (1558) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2011
Head disappears in no time at all - ridiculous. 1/5 for appearance. Taste is better but not much better, a thin lager with major hints of corn.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear golden, white fizzy head. Slight creamy, grainy grassy lager nose. Decent lager palate with dry grassiness and a touch of nutty malt. Thin finish. I like this actually, very refreshing.

5 june 2011, bottle. yellow, clear, steady bubbles. slightly skunky lager nose with some caramel malty sweetness. thin/med body and fairly fizzy. has more of a caramel flavour than most lagers. not very sweet and a bit of a bitter finish. decent enough.

AshtonMcCobb (4201) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a bright, pale yellow with steady bubbles and a decent head, some of which hangs around. The nose has a nice malty sweetness. the taste has some oatmeal, more of the sweet malt and there is a creaminess.The palate is light to medium in body, creamy in texture and with a long clean finish. Overall, I feel that in flavour, this has taken a small step away from lager towards a brown ale - nice!
