M&S are using some excellent brewers for their bottled range. This is a gorgeous lemon citrusy beer with a fine biscuit background. Grassy, fresh and with a great bitter zing on the tongue. Veers towards a good quality Czech lager at times. Really enjoyed this.

omikr0n (692) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma is grassy and spicy hops and a bit of malt. Flavor is bitter, quite similar to the aroma. Quite light, but very refreshing with nice biterness. Very enjoyable.

Borresteijn (4541) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
50cl Bottle from M&S A’dam. Clear pale golden colour, thin white head. Aroma of floral hops, almost soapy, like lavender or rosemary, honey, some sweet malts and sweet lemon. Flavour is much the same, nice floral hoppiness, soft sweet honey, subtle bitter finish. Light-bodied. Nice.

Clear, straw colour. Thin, lasting, white head. Lemon zest. Tinned pear. Something like vanilla. Taste is dry and light bitter. Fresh palate. Soft carbonation. Long, light bitter finish. Easy drinking.

leaparsons (7923) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Light gold with a white foam. Aromas are marmalade with toast malts and nice fresh grassy notes. Jammy with candy sugar and mellow grapefruit. Flavours are sweet, jammy lemon and apricot with a fairly restrained grapefruit and lemon bitterness to finish low toast malts with some residual sugar. A decent hoppy brew.

Clean golden color, small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, malt, some spice, floral and grassy notes. Taste is similar with notes of peach and melon, dry sweet with medium bitter hoppy finish. Light body and lively carbonation. Quite decent and refreshing ale.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Thought this was JHB? Last sampled for breakfast on the back seat of a National Express between Heathrow and Gatwick. This bottle back to back with a Kernel. Slim-lidded lager gold wafting with pine, white musk and mandarin handwash, boiled flowers. Decent sweet brittle (lightly buttered) pine, lime and crackers flavour possibly mildly damaged by bottling. Buttery grass bitterness and lime finish. I probably shouldn’t but prefer this to the Kernel.
