Bottle - 330ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Golden body with a fading white bubbly head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with strong herbal hints. its good malty/hoppy taste carries herbal and bready notes. Ends with a relatively robust bitter/herbal finish.

Godfather50 (43) - 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.

Mild hoppy aroma. Smells like creamy cheese. Overwhelming taste of cowsheds but not in a bad way. Not unpleasant but more fizzy than I was expecting. Medium gold colour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
330ml Bottle: BBD 7th May 14, poured into a Veltins badged stemmed tulip during a lager/pilsner tasting session with the wife, this was the last of the five beers we tried. Pale yellow to gold with a mini haze, the head pure white that started deep and even began to fade instantly before settling down as a wisp and collar. Mild aromas, mixed esters from both grassy hops and semi-sweet malty molasses: had to sniff deeply to find anything. The taste was a pleasant blend of lager-like flavours: malty front with a more bitter, dry hop finish. Nothing special about it, but better than all the mass produced beers around the world in this style. Nicely carbonated, appeared fresh and scored well compared to some on the night.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma of lager yeast, straw, citrus. Malt is apparent in the taste, some straw, yeast, grains and citrus finish. Quite a refreshing beer, not bad overall.
