Yeah.... so, no winner here. If the description starts talking about malt sweetness you know it won’t be great. Neither is this one. Bottle from Drank van Nap on Woerden.

Godfather50 (73) - SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Crate bought at brewery by my darling Fiona. Pours with a thin head wich quickly disappears. Aroma very light flowery hop. Taste of light pilsner malt with more wheat body. Nice balanced bitterness. Sweet dough and apple strudel. Lovely oily mouthfeel with light to medium body supported by excellent carbonation. I am thrilled that Glasgow has a locally produced lager of such quality. Refreshing change.
