managed to get a pint of this before the last barrel went at Hyroyds WMC.
It’s been years since I’d had on of these and I’d forgotten how good it was.
straw/hay/grass aroma with a little lemon citrus. flavour is slightly malty with a hint of hop. prickly carb. slight bitter finish.
allegedly the 2.8 version tastes exactly the same. i’ll be on the look out!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Duke of Argyll, Soho. This is the one we tend to drink after work, as its cheap and goes down easy (is there a Soho joke in there somewhere?)
Pours a pale yellow, with a medium white head. Aromas of straw, low hop, and a touch of citrus. Taste is much the same. Plain, but a little different to other pale lagers

On tap the Princess Louise. Clear gold beer, very malty with a distinct caraway nuttyness. A bit different for a lager but would not want loads.
