The aroma is predominantly cereal but the flavour combines a nice sweet barley malt with noticeable wheat and light hopping. Not as crisp as it claims but this is a very nice lager. Hazy pale gold colour with a white head which retains well.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle at home, 25/06/16. Very light haze on a golden orange pour with a decent off white head that dissipates in time to a swirl and well bubbled edging. Nose is airy malts, caramel, orange zest, straw, light bread. Taste comprises tangerine, toasted grain, citric zest, caramel, biscuit, soft bread, floral notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent drop - not very lager like mind!

The_Osprey (5742) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Distracted review in company. 750ml bottle at home, 4.5% BB Aug 2015. Pale orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is softly bready, yeast, dust, fabrics. Body is medium to light, soft carbonation. Taste is a little sweet and biscuity, touches of quenching citrus, dry and softly bitter finish. Decent lager.

ManVsBeer (8270) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle from Marks & Spencer, Birstall. Golden-yellow with a small head. Ale texture with really fine lager malts that create a very smooth tasting brew.

750ml bottle from M&S, Marlow. Straw with a billowing but fast fading white head; grainy citrus aroma; soft citrusy taste; and a clean finish. Rather good, particularly with a curry.
