ManVsBeer (7846) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
Clear golden lager that looks the part but with no head. Has a sweet aroma like most other beers but little flavour to it, although the dominant feature is its great texture, the pure spring water gives it an exceptionally smooth feel in the palate.

imdownthepub (12688) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from M&S Banbury. Gold with fizzed head. Light, slightly flowery, fruity lager, a touch flabby rather than crisp I would say, but reasonable enough. Some lemon though. It’s ok.

tommann (3217) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours bright gold with a medium head. Aroma is grassy hops with a little lemon. Taste is grassy to start. Some minerals. Medium bitter finish.

Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, light yellow-gold with a small, foamy white head. Dough, cereal and light hay in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, cereal, hay, light zesty citrus, faint grassy bitterness. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Crisp finish, lightly sweet with mild cereal, dough, faint straw. Very basic but pretty refreshing. Kind of watery but yeah, pretty easy drinking.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2011
Pale yellow with a undulating white foam. Delicate herbal hop and honeyed biscuit aroma with hints of chamois leather. Fine soft taste without adjuncts or flaws; clean shrubby German hop, cut grass, thistle, hay mellowing into bread and honey. Top lager than wouldn’t embarrass itself in Munich.

Gary (1800) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 (500ml ,pasteruised bottle) Ok this shit is ok : its headless and soulless but it retains a nice buttery, bready sweet palate , with herbal hop bitter notes; its not too dismilar to a Helles .

sm89walt (1912) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2010
500ml bottle. Poured with a mostly lasting, creamy, foamy white head atop a yellow-orange body. Standard lagery grain aromas but a nice crisp hoppiness and sweetness. Delicate hop flavour profile, some grainy sweetness and a dryish, subtly bitter end. Light, moderately carbonated body with a short finish.

johndoughty (4772) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle. Golden and low on carbonation with a small head. Medium body with some sweetness that lingered. Pleasant but a little overdone on the sweetness for my taste.

Rune (10703) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2010
500ml bottle bought from a M&S food store at Leeds City Station. One-Finger, loose white head. Straw-golden body. Vaguely smell of dry malts, hay and water. Cheap malty flavour in the direction of cardboard. Crisp, oily and lively carbonated (hotel room, 11.07.2010).
