Fancy can from the One Trick Pony, Moseley. Rather a stable, solid, quite plain, sticky, clean Lager. Nothing out of the ordinary, but quite fine.

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 29, 2014
355 ml can from Beer Up. Pale gold, slightly hazy, with an average, creamy and moderately persistent bright white head. Lots of bubbles streaming up. Typical helles aroma, definitely sweet, slightly nutty, some dark bread/biscuit notes, as well as herbal hops. The taste pretty much follow suite: sweet upfront, mild herbal and malty bitterness, slightly buttery/soapy taste, a hint of yellow fruits too. Solid dryness and excellent drinkability. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. May not be very fresh, but it’s still OK.

Can at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA. Golden / bronze body. Clear with a small white cap. Aromas of pils malt, a hint of sweet, fruity notes. Grain and bread with distant floral notes and a clean feel. Easy to drink. Not too sweet. Light Saaz hop character. Solid.

jgb9348 (4923) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Crisp, very golden coloured body with a clear glow and a thick, four centimetre tall white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, lemons and a bit of funk. Light-bodied; Strong lemony flavour up front with a hint of bitterness, some very light hops, a crisp apple flavour and the very slightest hint of metal. Aftertaste shows very light and airy flavours with the malt and lemons commanding the most taste. Overall, a nice and very refreshing and easy-drinking beers that still shows a lot of character and depth, especially for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Lebanese Taverna market in Arlington, Virginia sampled at home in Washington on 27-September-2014 - Thanks Kevin!
