Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Many thanks to Cuso! Pours clear, bright yellow-gold with a fine, white foam head. Nose holds a bit of papery pale malts, light cereal. Light sweet flavor, mild hay, more papery malts, some light grains. Light in body with fine carbonation. Pretty crisp to finish, light lemony citrus, mild cereal malts. There’s a slight lemony tang here that stands out. Otherwise, pretty acceptable.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2003
Golden straw colour, with just wisps of foam; Medium saaz aroma with bready pale malts, a hint of grassiness and I might be fooling myself but bitter orange rind as well in there. Palate is malt-accented, starting off with a sweet, slightly oily, malt note that borders on being sugary. A slight hit of sour apple segues this beer into a hoppier finish with the grassiness picks up, the bitterness shows a bit more, the sugariness drops out and the palate goes semi-sweet but tasting more of saaz. The finish is kind of watery, which underscore the importance of a good finish - a long dry finish really elevates a pilsner like Bitburger but a watery finish hobbles a pilsner like Topvar 12.
