BeerNinjaUK (163) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle from Ocado. Aroma of damp cardboard. Pours pale yellow with ever so slight cloud (just a slight blurriness) and very little head. Taste malt forward, crisp with slight earthy beetroot but not much of interest. Good carbonation and refreshing, but otherwise uninspiring.

Erzengel (7274) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2016
*Old rating. Best before 10.08.11. Nice fresh grainy beginning. Smooth and grainy with nice floral hops. Moderate bitter finish with a nice floral aftertaste. Nice for a Pale Lager.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Keg at The Market Tavern, Durham, £4.80/pint. Standard looking amber pale lager with a foamy white head and lively carbonation. The nose is sweetish and slightly buttery. The taste is overly sweet and reminds me of beer that has been left in the sun too long and takes on an unpleasant flavour. I don’t see why this is ranked as a top class lager.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Pale straw golden, decent white cap. Nose is grainy sweet, more straw than grassiness but fairly crisp - as is the initial taste. Damp bread, softly sweet and crisp enough crusty malt to soak that up. Not overly firm carbonation, as much as you need, and a lean veggy/herbalised finish to round things off. Not a world beater and I’m having it "fresh from the source" but normally if somewhere is serving this alongside other less illustrious pale lager company, they’ll have some Williams Bros options tucked away too.

Keg at WEST Brewery, Murray’s Stag, Glasgow

MrHangover (3765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma has some skunk in there, light grainy base and not much else. Flavour is light sweet, thin and fairly uninteresting. Short, almost no aftertaste. Light prickly carbonation.
