Hippoman (530) - 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.

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 (4436) - 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.

Malty bright yellow lager. Body is extremely lively. Taste is malty sweetness and caramel. Head is typical of a macro - artificial. One is OK but no more.

Very well made and crafted brew, Sam Smith is a very good brewery and this is one of their best. Great full bodied beer and nice malted mix.
