Keg, Bulls Head, Youlgreave. Pale gold with carbonation. Aromas are cereal grain with crisp lemon and some nuttiness. Toasted with hints of mandarin. Flavours are grainy malts with a nutty lager like character. Lemon with dusty, peppery carbonation. It’s only keg but I quite liked it.

Keg at Henry’s Green Park. Bright golden colour with a creamy steady white head. Fine carbonated look. Light citric nose and subtle hoppy flavour. For a lager very enjoyable.

Keg at Wetherspoons (under Central Library), Birmingham. Thought I’d rated this ages ago. Quite pleasant sweet lager. Lacks a bit of lagery hop bite, but it’s ok.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light fizzy golden body with creamy head. Aromatic hops, crisp malt base, light yet pleasant. Light bitterness, enough malt base. A good step up from a mass market lager, as a beer geek not spectacular. But well made and a good idea. Cheers! (Half pint at The Star Bishop’s Stortford)

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint on draft. Crystal clear straw colour with a good white head. Very light floral aroma. Honey, light spice, floral notes and a lightly bitter finish (though still more bitter than might be expected). Not a bad effort for a craft lager. Marston’s attempts at craft beer have been generally disappointing to date so I hope this marks the beginning of an upward trend. Interested to try the Saison and wheat beer in the series.

Keg at the Moon Under Water, JDW - London. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Aroma has notes of sweat, bread and cereal. Light sweet flavor with melon, plastic, grapefruit and mild bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Slightly crispy cereal to finish with sugary bread, a but more plastic, dough, vague citrus. Not awesome.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The White Swan, Solihull, 06/04/14. Chill-hazed brilliant gold skimmed with white. Dank mildewed old lemon and lime aroma. Dirty mildewed citrus taste with salvaging cashew and biscuit. Some really rank bean sprout, mould and mushroom off notes. Not clean. Served in cleaner nick can imagine it being decent. Hints of soapy flowery Cascade. But this sample undrinkable. Rerate pending....
