COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The BEST session lager in Glasgow. An easy drinking lager with a mellow malty finishthat compliments the citrus background.

mighty_meadow (207) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2014
On tap at Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine, Scotland (HAC Bar). Nice and refreshing as far as lagers go and far superior to the mass produced lagers ubiquitous to other pubs in the town. Very decent lager.

on tap at the mercat in edinburgh. a decent approximation of a helles - pale golden with a thin but enthusiastic head; metallic aroma; light bitterness with a hint of grassy hops, though a bit thin in mouthfeel

jamestulloch (1406) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Keg at West Brewery. Clear golden body with no head, carbonation or lacing. Light fruity aroma with a faint yeasty note. Subtle grapefruit flavour - nicer than St Mungo (the filtered version of this). Thin body with an oily texture. Nice fizz. Decent, but I remember it being more cloudy/unfiltered/tasty last time I tried it.

flying_pig (946) - SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Pint in Lebowskis, Glasgow:
Light with some basic but nice lager malts and a touch of grassy hops. There is some corn but not a lot else other than some mild skunk right at the end.
Golden with a clear body and a small amount of white lacing in lieu of a proper head.
Light lager malts along with some citrus and grassy notes. There is some grain and corn with hints of water and bread although again there isn’t too much going on really.
Light medium in body and with carbonation just on the high side of medium. There is a lively feel to the beer that finishes with a smooth dryness and a crisp end.

A fairly basic lager but not necessarily a bad one, it just seems slightly watered down when compared to the breweries main lager & it’s not as exciting either.

AshtonMcCobb (2601) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2012
On tap @ Teuchters, Edinburgh. Pours golden with steady carbonation and some head, some of which hangs around. The nose is distinctly citrus against a gentle pale malt background. The citrus is confirmed on the taste and in fact, we’re talking sweet citrus, almost lemonade. Again there is a gently malt profile. The palate is light to medium in body with a long tangy middle and finish. Overall, a very good effort.

JanLaursen (3127) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
Tap at the Red Squirrel, Edinburgh. Clear pale with a frothy, but diminishing white head. Grassy aroma with some grainy nores. Taste is sweet malty, rather light, and grassy hoppy. Some resin in the finish. Clean and crisp. High drinkability, ok carbonation. A cut above most British lagers.

[keg at Red Squirrel] Relatively new lager from WEST. Looks and tastes very much like St Mungo, not sure about the degree of differentiation. Clear golden, nice white head. Slightly grassy, slightly sweet aroma. Pretty clean tasting, and decent enough on a hot day – but I’d file this under St Mungo and way beneath their unfiltered lager [20062012]

[keg, WEST brewery, Glasgow] On tap at a scorching day in Glasgow. New beer by West. Reminded me very much of St Mungo – clear golden pour, decent white head. Bitter biscuit aroma, slightly metallic. Some grassy hop in there. On the taste too, but it’s a straight up drinker’s lager – dry, zingy and slightly sharp. Noble hops do their best, with what they have to complement [27052012]

Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2012
Half from keg at the West brewpub. Pale golden body. Faint white head, lacing the glassware. Aroma of dry fruity hops and pale malts. Flavoured with sweet noble hops and pale malts. Dry aftertaste. Clean tasting and foamy in the mouth. Mild oily palate. Refreshing. Above par for the style (Glasgow, 13.04.2012).

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 Keg @ West Brewpub & Lewbowski’s. A new lager which they plan to push as their main product. Pale golden yellow colour, good head. Biscuit corn aroma. Dry biscuit grain corn & malt flavour. Sharp like a typical lager. This is a good lager but not a great beer.
