Clean and crisp with a fruity aftertaste. The use of Saaz hops gives this lager a citrus finish that lingers on.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours pale gold, light haze, thick white head. Aromas of straw, lemon. Taste is dry,then lemon meringue. Sweet finish. This beer is about as good as the ’joke’ name, fit which I am deducting two points overall.

Cask at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. Pale straw with a tight white head; grainy aroma; grainy in the mouth with a sweet cream soda taste; followed by some straw bitterness, and a trace of citrus. Rather heavy and uninspiring.

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
Pint at the Retreat in Reading. Golden orange with no head. Light, floral hop taste, smooth and sweet golden ale. Pleasant, light hoppy aroma, smells like it tastes. A hint of yeast, smooth and pleasant. Overall score reflects that its better than the sum of its parts.
