stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 5, 2013
Keg @ DooíCot Edinburgh [280513]
Very light blonde, fizzy white head, lots of streaming carb, some lacing
Aroma - very light pale malts, hint of corn, very little aroma
Taste - Thin light corn malts, hint of cereal hop, slight buttery slickness, watery, no nasty off flavours but still bland
Palate - High carb, light body, slightly oily. Finish - hmm...cold and fizzy
Overall - I thought this was going to be rubbish - it wasnít too bad as a weak lager. Iíd certainly drink it over Carlsberg or Fosterís as it didnít taste terrible - just wasnít much going on at all

Old Anchor, Tower Bridge. Bright clear pale gold beer. Tiny white head. Palate is light and crisp. Surprisingly flavourful for itís abv and colour. Light caraway creamy malt. Mild tang and a trace of citrus. Semi dry finish with minerals. Not bad at all!

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Draught at The Princess Louise. Pale yellow, small White head. Aroma and taste of sugary heather with some dry weedy bitterness - light body, okay carbonation and a quick finish, leaves a hunt of harsh sweetness behind. Tick.
