Keg at the Tivoli, Morecambe. Pours with a head. Aromas of chief corn, light herbal hops. Taste is more of the same. Crisp finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle. Malty aroma, smooth with minimal bitterness. Not too bad, won’t rush to drink it again.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
550ml bottle into pint glass. Beautiful caramel malt nose. Golden beer, medium carbonation, solid white head. Bitter, thin mouthfeel. Abrupt metallic hop finish. Slight very late sweetness. Interesting take on a lager. The nose is all malt but the taste is hops.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent lager, very idiosyncratic hoppy, lemony aroma, good carbonation, very refreshing, clearly English bitter or maybe pale ale influenced the brewers at Sam Smith’s when they came up with this. And an equally idiosyncratic label, too.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with next to no head. Aroma of apple cider and prunes. Tastes like lager with a stewed apple kick. Mediocre at best.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a pale yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is sweet cereal. The palate is medium thin body - lager body. The taste is light malt with some bitterness. So, it’s "organic" and then it’s pasteurized. How "organic" is that?

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Semi-sweet honey cereal without much hop presence; maybe a little lemony. Appearance: Still yellow pour with a ring of white head. Flavor: Sweetness pares back a little with slightly toasted honey cereal; just a little lemon towards the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Liked this alright, but actually preferred the regular organic lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very simple and average piwo with some yeast and rye upfront. Watery taste with nearly no taste. Some butter in the back rising the potential. Still a simple one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a clear deep golden colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of straw and hops. Taste of hops, straw, citrus fruits, hay, barn and white bread. Crisp one with a mild and boring finish. Average lager beer.
