McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Peppery, dry lime. Piss pale golden very little head. Chewy, pathetic slap of malt. Wayward dry punches on the finish. Not terrible for an own brand.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Ok, slightly bitter, slightly lemony, this is a standard Czech pilsner, it does everything it says on the bottle but nothing more

Bottle(@Waitrose, Cromwell Road, Kensington):Golden, small white foamy layer, no carbonation visible, pale malty to bready nose, shy peppery hops in the background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, malty base detectable, light bodied; slightly lingering lemony-hoppy finish with a pale-malty touch. A bit weak, but still an authentic czech Pilsener…
