3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Chandos near Trafalgar Square, tick, served in a flute. Clean pale yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of grassy and spicy hop, slight floral, slight grainy malt. Low to medium bitterness. Quite crisp and clean. Soft carbonation, bit thin bodied. Very comparable to a fresh Heineken and pretty good actually.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-13-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a large thick white head. The head has great retention, fading slowly over time to give a decent level of lacing.
Smell- The smell is of a bready and grainy aroma mixed with a grassy hop smell mixed within. With these aromas are some lighter citrus and caramel aromas as well. Overall it has a rather crisp smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a grainy flavor upfront which creates a base flavor for the entire taste. Upfront there is a very light caramel flavor as well as a citrus taste that are mixed with the grain. The bitter citrus keeps strong as the taste advances with some flavors of a grassy hop note coming to the tongue as well. In the end a crisp and clean lightly hopped malt taste is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is light with a carbonation just above average. Very appropriate for the style as it enhances the crisp and simple flavors of the brew as well as creates a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – While the bitter is possibly slightly a little too intense for a lager, the flavor transitions, look, smell and feel are all quite nice. Not bad.

550 ml bottle from the Bishop’s Cellar. Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is doughy with light honey and hay notes. Flavour is nice bready malt with a little honeyish sweetness and a very gentle floral hoppiness. Average body. Quite a nice lager.

Bottle pour. Pours super light with a mild, yet refreshing malt aroma. This one really surprised me. Didn’t know what to expect from this, but it has a really nice flavor to it. Nice mild malt flavor. A little rice. Small hops to it. Drinks super easy. Really enjoyed this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a nice light colored clear yellow with streams of carbonation rising at a decent pace to fill a one and a half finger white foamy head. The head dissipated within less than about forty seconds and graced the glass with a nice speckled lacing.
The smell had some subtle biscuit to breadiness rolling under my nose and allowing a nice sweet honey coated hoppiness.
The taste had a nice sweet fruity character over top of some light breadiness. There was a quick dry and crisp finish.
On the palate, this beer was about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation finishes fairly smooth.
Overall, in my opinion, this was a good beer to have again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Apple-ish English fruit; Sweet malt, subtle biscuit, and a honey-like character.
Flavor: Fruit character is really dominant. A character I would expect from and English ale--so that’s surprising. Also some vegetable lager yeast flavor, and a little malt in the background.
