Remarkably smooth for a full-flavoured beer. Our founder’s intention was to combine the refreshing taste of a German lager with the distinctive taste of an English Ale without blending the two.

Bottle. Pass it up! The deScription says "smooth for a full-flavoured beer" - well the flavor police must’ve stolen the goods outta my bottle! Head was weak and fizzy. This was a pale lager-like beer with a pissy taste. All that was missing was the aluminum taste and it could’ve been a Coor’s product.

the slight creaminess prevents the score from being in the 1’s, but this is pretty much a fail from start to finish (which I did not).

Can from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale golden in colour with a thin white head. It has a malty and slight grassy flavour with a delicate creaminess on the bitter-sweet fruity finish.

egajdzis (5654) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Amber color with a small, quickly dissipating head, no lacing. Aroma of toast, sweet cereal grains. Taste of much of the same. Nothing offensive, but nothing to write home about.

Yamato (37) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 3, 2015
Golden color. White head disappears quickly. Hoppy, no special aroma. Gentle smoothness. Watery. Light body. Little taste. Is this ale? Filling. Not again.

D’un doré étincelant, la bière supporte une mousse moyennement épaisse qui ne disparaît pas rapidement. Céréales sucrées. Insipidité. Pas crémeuse du tout. Très bonne avec du Clamato. Non. Pas vraiment plus dans le fond.

Pratiquement de la même couleur que ses consœurs. Un nez de malt et de sirop quelconque. Un goût de malt, alors qu’une effervescence passe au travers une texture soyeuse. On a l’impression qu’elles toutes du même brassin, avec une étiquette différente. (1308-241014)

allmyvinyl (7028) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2014
355ml can shared with jeevan, cheers (I think!) Pours clear gold, thin white head. Grain and metal aromas. Taste is lager-like, more metal, astringent finish. Not great.

Travlr (16925) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Sample at Atlantic Beer Festival Moncton. Bright clear neon yellow color, cocoa-cola head. Aroma of corn and cereal. Taste is light cereal.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3443) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2014
Can from Marche 54. A pale cream with a big fluffy head of foam that leaves great lacing. Cream and light biscuit and fruity sweet. The beer has a medium body and a malty  sweet flavor with some cream soda notes. A solid light beer.
