Tap. Brown Bear, Sheffield. Kenny’s stag do. Clear, pale gold. Streams of bubbles. Frothy, bright white head. Nose has sweet, sickly, cereal malts. Taste is metallic and lightly bitter. Foamy mouthfeel. Fairly watery. Sam Smiths beers are generally better than this one. Sweet and buttery and thin.

Lagers don’t do very well here. Had a pint at the Chandos, and it was great. Fresh, clear, dry but with sweetness in the back. Some hops in there too. Just bloody good tasty lager. You can’t drink DIPA all the time.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
On tap at the King William Alehouse, Bristol February 2016. Pale gold in colour, with a big, white, head. Very gassy. Sharp lager, with a hint of lemon fruit, crisp cereal malts and a lingering, bitter, finish. A decent, if over-carbonated lager.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Keg at The Colpitts, Durham, £2.08/pint. Light golden beer with a big, white, ice-cream style head and furious carbonation. The aroma is muted with only light buttery and noble hop notes detectable. The flavour is bready and the taste reasonable bitter for a lager. Crisp and enjoyable pale lager.

On tap at Chandos, near Trafalgar Square. Why I’m in here drinking keg lagers instead of viewing one of the world’s great art galleries across the road, I’ll never know. Light yellow bordering of straw with a small but compact white head. Sour chalky smell: citrus, phosphate, urine. Taste is sweet, almost pleasant, but ultimately noncommittal. A suggestion of bitterness in the surprisingly long finish. I wish they did one decent lager as opposed to a handful of questionable ones.

Yellow-orange, with slight foamy head. Some caramel and biscuity aromas. Distinct lack of flavour profile. Rather watery.

allmyvinyl (9448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Keg at the Tivoli, Morecambe. Pours pale gold with a thin white head. Aromas are vegetal, cooked corn. Taste is similar, light sweet finish.

AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2014
On keg at the Swan and Cygnets in Durham. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head and ferocious carbonation. Nose - gentle citrus. Taste - lemon and lime, slightly confected. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - decent lager. Worth a revisit.
