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.

Clear straw yellow, decent white head. Aroma of some caramel and wheat. Taste is citrus, caramel with a medium bitter finish. Slightly spicy aftertaste. Refreshing and tasty.

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.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with fairly thin but tight head. Aroma is strong malty sweetness with hint of fruit. Taste to follow, it starts with an almost banana bready sweetness balanced with a slightly tart bitterness. Quite unusual for a lager, and very tasty.

Live Rating. Served cool in a straight pint glass - no frills. Beautiful looking pint. Bright gold with a thin dense white head, leaving lacing down the glass. Honey and new mown hay aroma. Flavours of lemon cheesecake, floral hops, and some nuttiness. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Superior example of a ubiquitous style. Very superior. Benchmark superior. Recommended.

750ml bottle. Clear, straw colour. Thin, bubbly white head. Grainy, lemon, some peach, maybe. Hint of toffee. Taste is malty sweet, then a touch of yeasty sourness. Medium body, light carbonation. Light, bitter finish. Poffed (real word) the lot, in about 10 minutes! Nice beer.

750ml bottle from Marks & Spencer. Rich golden amber, good head. Corn resin malt aroma. Tropical fruit and grain flavour, bitter aftertaste. A hybrid between a golden ale & lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle as a present:
Light caramel and some sweetness on the nose upfront with touches of butter, some bread and a little biscuit too. There is some citrus hints and a little bitterness too.
Amber with a thin and slightly foamy looking, white lacing for a head that stays consistent throughout.
Medium bitterness with some bread, sweetness & some butter too. There is a hint of vanilla, some caramel and a little citrus but all of these are quite light.
Medium with an almost thick feel that is slightly creamy. There is medium carbonation and a bittersweet finish.
Not a bad lager really and whilst similar to Schiehallion, sadly this one isn’t quite in the same league. Still quite drinkable and one that was enjoyable.
