Poured from a bottle quiet lively. Quite a nice taste but not something I would stock up with to many.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle from a Selver in Tallinn, Sept 2014 (€ 1,99). Pours a clear pale amber with a big persistent white head. Some lacing too. Nose is mild with grassy malts most apparent; sweeter and fruitier aspects when warmer. Taste similarily grassy and malty, very neat and clean, slight autumn fruits note there too. Medium body and average carbonation; palate a bit watery, finish is fairly bitter and dry. Not offended by it, not impressed either. Went down easy, forgot about it just as well...

Bottle. A simple and easy drinking beer. Not badly made but it’sa beer not really designed to excite.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and straw with some barley hints. Taste of hops, straw, mild flowers, mild nuts, barley and light malt. Easy drinkable and refreshing, yet nothing special.

A store nearby sells this for Ł1.39 per bottle and in recent weeks my girlfriend and I have had quite a few bottles of this. A great session ale, nothing to blow you away but a very refreshing golden ale with a clean bitterness to it and very quaffable indeed. Slightly biscuity malt profile along with medium bitter grassy hops and a mildly dry finish. Yum!
