COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Galloway's first Lager - This abounds with fresh taste. Best lager and wheat malts, with continental Saaz hops are utilised in the brewing process. This plus Galloway's renowned soft water, ensures a most refreshing drink which leaves a hint of citrus on the palate.

Golden beer with a foamy head and takes a moment to clear. Very light fruit scent. An initial sweet fruit flavour settles into something slightly sourer and hoppier. At first I found the sourness a little off-putting but after a few mouthfuls that aspect of it dulled a bit. Quite drinkable.

Scopey (11785) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2016
Cask at The Globe Inn Dumfries. It pours hazy golden with a thick, foamy white head. The nose is sweet, soft, white bread, cereal and grass. The taste is bitter - sweet, fruity, white bread, grass, straw and grain with a sweet finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Far too sweet for my liking...

shoestring (347) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Surprised labelled as pilsener. As said below, light like Czech hops. Nice thin head atop gold fizz. Oranges lemons- citrus to fire. Touch of marmalade. Lovely refreshing and dry finish.

jjsint (2126) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Keg at the Sulwath Brewery Tap, Castle Douglas. Bright yellow, darker than straw but lighter than gold. Light lemony aroma, pure but hard to detect. Tastes lovely though... citrus bittersweet married with a sweet/savoury malty backbone. Perfect amount of carbonation.

thmsboyd (193) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle BBE: 19/6/15. Well-chilled. Crystal clear golden body with quickly-diminishing, soapy off-white head. Cereal aromas with a hint of ripe banana and a honey sweetness on the nose. Medium sweet taste with a little ripe fruit sourness and gentle bitterness. Apparent woody flavour. Low carbonation, medium body, flat texture. A decent beer in there somewhere, but not a good example of the style.
