Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are grain with citrus and sugar. Zesty and fresh. Flavours are light caramel malts with sweet, sugary grain. Dry and toasty with an almost champagne like character (almost). OK, if a bit too sweet for my personal taste.

5l mini cask, bought at the brewery. Clear deep golden colour, large and creamy head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, intensively malty with good aromatic hop flavours. Very slightly fruity. Smooth and velvety mouthfeel, a pleasure!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 The Lure:
A filtered bronze hue is topped by a majestic, lingering head. Fine grainy malt and its honeyed counterpart befriend mild spicy and earthy hops.
A caramel suggestion flurries through a subtle hop tingle. This citrusy and grassy hoppiness, helped by some neighbouring herbs, eases the quaffing. This is a very drinkable lager, bordering Bohemian-style, which gets better and better as the pint is downed, demanding bigger and bigger gulps.
Teasing a sunburn.

I thought it was a tasty lager. The smell was actually the best component, floral with some nice fruitiness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Grainy malt aroma - lightly sweet. Amber color with minute head. Rather weak flavor - mildly sour malt intially with sweetness coming out in the middle and the merest hint of hops at the end. A good Vienna but nothing to set it apart.

Dry hops, grainy malt, some nuts and lots of metal in flavour.
Metallic flavour is quite disturbing.

Bottle, craft beer advent calendar day #8, shared with my wife. Deep golden colour with a puffy eggshell head that retains nicely. Lovely bready aroma and flavour, light caramel. The finish has some oxidized papery notes, but this is otherwise quite pleasant.
