BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Half-pint (Keg) in the Cittie of Yorke, Holborn on 12th Sep 2014. Usual lager/pilsner look: golden, clear and clean with a white head that did not hang around. Sweeter than Sam Smiths other lager offerings and a bit ’grainy’. OK but not enough hop content for my idea of a good Pale Lager.

Tap@Princess Louise, London (RBESG 10/08/2014) - golden coloured pour with a white head. Grassy and floral aroma and taste, crisp biscuit malts, light wheat and corn nuances. Easy drinking lager, very nice.

kwik-lime (1312) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Keg from a SS somewhere in Soho, fills a good gap for them now Alpine is only 2.8%. Not complex in the least but one of the cleanest tasting lagers I’ve ever had, very nicely balanced and the sort of refreshing, easy-drinking beer that you could quaff all day. Like.

Leighton (11023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Tap at the Princess Louise - London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a foamy, white head. Lots of biscuity, pale bread in the nose, mild hay. Light sweet flavor with pleasant biscuits, minimal bitterness, light dough. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nicely balanced to finish, similar traits, more crispy biscuits, mild dough, straw. Extremely drinkable.

Aroma of slight grassy spicy hop, touch of cardboard
Taste of very light grassy spicy hop, extremely light malts, watery, slightly bitter metallic
Palate - High carb, thin body. Finish - dab of bitterness, bit metallic
Overall - I remember other Sam Smith’s lager better than this. Almost nothing here.

Anchor Tap Sam Smiths, Tower Bridge. Keg. Clear paleish gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Very light pale malt. Mild carbonated bite. Very light touch of citrus. Finishes light. Fresh and refreshing with bready burps (thanks to DruncanVeasey for the notion of rating burps). The old lager swigger in me enjoyed this one.
