500ml bottle from Fire & Ice, Narberth. Pours hazy gold with good bubbly white head. Clean, balanced Welsh lager. Smooth finish. A real thirst-quencher.

Not overly flavoured, gold, clean and a bit under powered as far as the hops are concerned. A bit gassy too. Screams quality though.

Bottled. Clear golden, coarse head. Fruity viola aroma. Fairly sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied. Rather malty. Low bitterness. On the sweet side.

(Bottled) resembles a germanic pills in color , more bohemian to drink ; good fruity saaz citrus vibes intertwined with a sweet palate , i got subtle toffee pudding notes , grainy dryness. Nice quality.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle from Brewer’s Droop, Bristol. Deep gold in colour with no head and slight carbonation. Sweetish, marmalade malts, a touch of leafy hop and bitter finish. As said below, an ale rather than lager, but drinkable enough.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle at thewolf’s Kolding tasting, 15 May 2008. Rather surprised to come to a tasting in Denmark only to see a whole bunch of bottles that I could have bought from the organic food shop at the end of my street at home (but hadn’t). Perhaps one might expect this to be a grown up version of the Lambs Gold tasted immediately before. Well, it might have a little bit more weight, as one might expect, but the overall impression is still gold, clean and insubstantial. Perfectly drinkable but seemed underpowered and under-hopped to me. Almost certainly an ale made with lager ingredients rather than a true lager.

From the Bottle at Chris O’s 05/08/2009 Hoppy aroma. Golden and slightly pale with some alcohol present. Crisp and bitter malt finish.

Bottle at the legend of chriso’s pre GBBF09 tasting. Alround rating: Very yeasty, nutty pale malt, the yeast is like some mildue covered ornage. Which isnt hot.
