A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Aroma: grains, cereal, bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, medium frothy white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malty sweets again, but indeed, notes of floral hops. Overall: actually quite a nice Lager, very nice aroma and palate for this style. Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Kensington.

Smooth and tasty lager from England. Serve chilled, not cold. One of the nicer lagers out there.

Poured a pale straw color with a tall, foamy head. The head disapated quickly and left a bit of lacing. Citrusy aroma from the mug I poured it into. Pleasant taste -- malty with a crisp, wheaty finish. Excellent palette ... creamy and smooth. I would stock up on this one if it wasn’t quite expensive ($4+ for a 550 ml bottle).

Thick 1.5" white head, low-moderate lacing. Strong hops aroma -mostly fruity, and low-moderate malt. Clear, pale golden color. Nice balance of sweetness of malt but with lager flavor, low heat and style of hops. Good body, finishes very clean. I enjoyed the little extra malt sweetness and body with the flavor and easy lightness of pale lager. Would like stronger hops aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (5972) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
pours clear bright yellow with a small white head, some retention and lacing. crisp pale fresh cereals, grainy maltiness, faint fruitiness - lagering notes indeed thoughtouch of corn maybe, dry herbal-grassy notes, hint of sulfur, chalk, faint lemons. moderate carbonation, light body - not watery, dry and a bit bland herbal-grassy finish. linear but quenching. enjoyed with my dinner.

MunBro (843) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours light gold color. Head dissipated as fast as it poured, all fizz with no lace. Almost no scent, and almost no taste. This might be the weakest, most flavorless beer I’ve had. Tastes of hops, some floral notes but extremely weak and watery tasting. A disappointing beer.
