imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2011
Keg at The Three Goats Heads, Oxford. Pale straw with white head, carbonated. Sharp crisp lager, some tinnyness perhaps, but a reasonably neat Lager. Sharp malt note on the close. Reasonable.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2010
Tap at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. Clear yellow pour, super bubbly, with a foamy white head. Pale malt nose with straw hops. Lightly sweet, bready flavor with some cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. More cereal and bread in the finish with crispy bitters. Not terrible, just a bit bland.

JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2010
Draught at Robert Raikes House, Gloucester - 30/10/10. Little nose. Hoppy palate but not that strong tasting. Cold and easy to drink.

Frovigalning (2884) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at Princess Louise. Very weak smell and taste on this one, even for a lager. However it didn’t have any off flavours and was fairly easy to drink. As I sat at the pub on Friday I noticed it was one of the more popular brews.

blipp (5857) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Cask. Pours gold with a thin white head. Pale malty with some lighter sweet notes. Not bad.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2010
Cask at Anchor Tap. Golden body with small head. Hoppy nose. Hoppy taste. Nice, creamy.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 17, 2010
UPDATED: APR 19, 2010 17th April 2010, at The Swiss Cottage. Standard lager looks, golden with a little white head. Plain and lacking in flavour. Inoffensive is the word that comes to mind.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010
[2715-20100119] Tap. Not much aroma, a little straw. Clear, light yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Little straw continues in the flavour. Light-medium body. Not wonderful but interesting to try.
(@ The Cardinal; near Victoria Station, London)

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2009
Tap Three Goats Heads Oxford. A light straw gold coloured lager with a whitish head. A more than decent English lager with a nice bitter taste. Quite light in the nose but smooth and tasty. certainly better than average.

kwik-lime (1241) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2009
Good pale lager for a session, nice balance, right level of carbonation, decent hop character. Usually a good price as well!
