Niall73 (1659) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Tap at Sam Smiths Cock Ravern, London. Pours a clear gold with a good amount of carbonation present. Aroma has a hint of bread an a bit of corn. Sweet, with honey and a little lemon. A little bit astringent but it's OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheShepherds (54) - chapel hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Not what I was expecting. Really rather dry. Not tasteless but just dry. Okay for a quick, cool me down summer beer but really too expensive for that. Not going back to this any time soon.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at The Chandos. Gold clear lasting white head. Now that is a decent 4.2% abv lager. Even some hop sting on the finish. Pretty decent. Ok malts decent hops. Drinkable

flying_pig (932) - SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Pint on Tap at The White Horse, Soho, London (£5.50):
Corn and lager hops with some sweetness and background fruits, mainly apple smelling though. There is some light citrus and overall the beer is quite weak on the nose.
Golden straw with a 0.5cm foamy white and holds well. The beer is clear and leave some lacing on the glass.
Bland tasting with some light fruits, some corn and a medium bitterness running through it. There is some apples and a few basic hops but not much other than that.
Grainy on the palate with some semi-bitterness coming through on top of a relatively bland mouthfeel that starts sweet but quickly fades. The beer has a medium to light body and moderate carbonation.

A poor offering here and this one was especially given the reputation of the brewery and the fact I was expecting a lot better. This one was a very average beer that had nothing memorable about it and didn’t do anything to grab my attention.

Fairly crisp lager, decently hopped with a good balance and some sweetness in the finish. More than decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bronzan (124) - Windsor, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Pretty average lager, but it hit the spot after a long day of walking through London. Fairly crisp and clean. Enjoyed at Yorkshire Green pub. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 3, 2013
Keg @ Doo’cot, Edinburgh [010713] 4.5% alc
Light golden, big bubbly fizzy head, lots of streaming carb
Aroma - faint lager spicy hop, pale cereal malt
Taste as aroma, light sweet pale malts, dab of cereal, very soft spicy hop
Palate - High carb, fairly thin, bit oily. Finish as main flavour, some more cereal
Overall - Better than the macro lagers it is supposed to imitate and its cheaper too. Most lagers are dreadful but I wouldn’t mind drinking 2-3 pints of this.

RichardGretton (4237) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Cask@Swan and Three Signets, Durham. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is yeasty and dry, the flavour is yeasty and bitter. Overall a reasonable bitter and yeasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
