FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Sampled on draft at Pipers this beer poured a dark amber color with a large creamy-fluffy white head that lingered forever and left incredible lacing. The aroma was faintly tangy and sour with hints of citrus and bread. The flavor was tangy and sour with some citrus, a bit of bread and a touch of perfume. Short finish. Medium body. Meh.

jamestulloch (1316) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Keg at The Ball Room. Clear yellow-golden body with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of pale malt and faint notes of metal and corn. Flavour is exactly the same as the aroma - it’s not inoffensive, but there’s just nothing to it. Thin body with a watery texture. Overall, this is just a standard macro-brewed Lager. The only real plus is that it’s Scottish, which is why (most of the time) I’d choose it over the equally bland usual suspects such as Stella Artois, Fosters and Peroni.

Can from Total Wine in Orlando, FL. Pours gold with a slight white head. Meh sweetish aroma. Flavor is not much. Not gonna drink it.

b3shine (5304) - Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks decent; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells skunky with notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with what seems to be a hint of corn as well. Average on the palate. Tastes like a domestic adjunct macro lager.

Keg at the Guildford Arms. Fizzy and golden, harsh metallic nose, fizzy, cold, light toffee, harsh.

Cinctus (161) - - DEC 14, 2013
Rather light sweet tasting with some hay and grass. Nothing terribly complex but thats not what I want from such simple lager.

ContemplateBeer (1525) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Aroma: Hay, light grassiness, a touch of pear. Appearance: Gold body with a white head that dissipated into a thin film. Flavor: Loses some of the decent pear character and exchanges it for more hay; not as grassy as the nose would suggest. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Maybe a few small differences between this and the big boys, but not enough to set it apart. Went fine with my smoked salmon pate, however.

Sussexblue (2) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013 does not count
Looks and pours well, to start with. Head doesn’t last long, gas however builds up. Very thin texture with over average carbonation. A bitter finish. Golden and sparkly in colour, very dry after taste.

dynamiteninja (1487) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Gold body. Thin white head. Nose is corn, wheat, lager malts, alcohol, red fruit, spice, banana. Bittersweet. Dry finish. A respectable enough mass produced lager.

Can - small foamy head, clear pale straw color, sweet corn aroma and flavor, pretty basic pale lager, on the sweet side ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
