kajser27 (639) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 2, 2015
Yellow to golden colored, small white head, good lacing, decent lasting. Aroma is malt and grains, bit fruity and some herbal notes. Taste is low to medium sweet malty, quite grainy and cereals, some caramel malt, decent herbal and lemony hops, hay, low+ bitterness. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation. A decent lager, but still a pale lager... can’t expect much more than this. (on tap, Earl of Lonsdale, London)

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Keg at Glass house Stores. It pours clear gold with a thick white head. The nose is soft, sweet, white bread and a touch of cornbread. The taste is smooth, doughy, mild grassy notes, straw, paper, rich tea biscuit and cereal with a smooth finish. Medium body and soft, foamy carbonation carbonation. Not a whole lot to it, but it is well rounded. Good for what it is.
