mighty_meadow (303) - 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 (2110) - 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 (1150) - 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 (3906) - 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 (3227) - 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.
