Keg at West. It pours clear pale gold with a small white head. The nose is fresh, doughy, white bread, grass and cream. The taste is crisp, creamy, white bread, grass, toasty grain and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Decent lager. Clean and readily consumable.

Its a really basic lager and, to be honest well below West’s usual standard. It’s fairly tasty, hoppy and crisp in the mouth but ends up a bit sickly after a few. Nice enough but unremarkable.

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
