Pours clear, golden. A finger of white head dissipated by the time I’m typing this. Smells like a lager---grassy, mostly. Medium body. Not all that much flavor. Finish is limp---neither crisp nor lingering. Not much here.

500ml bottle into a ’Cobra’ pint glass at home on 2nd July 2016. Golden pour, bright and clean: plenty of carbonation bubbles rising through the clear body to the snow white head. Slight corn and malty nose, the flavour more balanced with a semi-bitter hop presence alongside the mini-sweetness from the malt content. Decent.

First enjoyed in on tap at"The Head of steam"hostelry in leeds,enjoyed a little too much perhaps as several pints later i lost my metrocard ,and wasn’t exactly in peak condition the following day, rare for me to drink this much but it was very tasty.
Happy to find bottles in Booths supermarket. Nose is fresh with slight skunky notes,classic lager malt flavours (hay,corn )balanced perfectly by the saaz and perle hops . Really a lovely lager, true to the style without being bland ,top draw.

Sample at the brewery, st. Austell. Quite average bittersweet lager beer, medium bittersweet finish. Not bad though.

This is a good lager, well above average. Unlike macro lagers it has a beginning, middle and end. Lemony up front, unusually pale. Drier than most, nice lack of sweetcorn. Sharp, bitter finish.

Zlote z srednia biala piana. Raczej slodkie z miodowym akcentem. Oprocz tego owoce i ziola. Niezbyt gorzkie. Ok

500ml Bottle from Tesco, Gilesgate, Durham. Pours piss yellow with lively carbonation but no head retention at all. The nose is sweet and corny and as such indistinguishable from 1.000 other lagers. The taste is a little more complex than most though with a fair bit of bitterness up front that gives way to a sweeter, slightly buttery finish. Lively on palate. Not a bad lager but not a beer I would have again through choice.
