flying_pig (905) - SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle from Asda, Enniskillen:
Clear and light coloured beer with a golden yellow colour and a bubbly, white head on top.
Sweet and with a helping of citrus and some grassy hops as well. There is also some light malts and a few light floral notes thrown in for good measure too.
Citrus and some floral hops upfront with a few sweet malts as weel but these are not as strong. There is a little honey and butterscotch around the middle too and overall it is a pretty sweet tasting beer.
Light-medium in body with lively carbonation and a slightly bitter finish.

A pretty average pale lager/helles beer with a taste that was beer than that of a mass market, industrial produced beer but it wasn’t quite craft lager either; well not in my opinion anyway. It was drinkable and pleasant enought but at the same time it wasn’t great and one bottle was enough to do me.

Theydon_Bois (7941) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle at (parent’s) home - 25/08/12 - thanks to Steve ’beers I’ve known’. Pours a clear pale golden colour with a thin white head. Lively carbonation evident from the appearance. Pale malts, straw and a little honey and orange on the nose. In the taste, sweet malts, grassy, a little wheat and grain, a pinch of citrus and a little spice culminating with a bitter crisp finish. Medium bodied with a good level of carbonation. Well poduced lager.

jaghana (3750) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle 50cl. A cloudy golden beer with good head. Nose is honey and grainy like. Aroma is grainy, hopy and honey like, caramel notes with malty and floral touch, very nice hopy and honey like beer, not filtered quite nice.

AshtonMcCobb (2372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2011
50cl bottle, thanks to Dan. Pours a hazy, pale, lemon colour with a decent head, some of which hangs around. The nose has raisins, hay and then oranges. The taste has more raisins and cereals. The palate is medium-bodied and textured with a dry finish. Overall, this is not a lager in my mind, maybe somewhere between a pale ale and a saison. My least favourite of the 4 I’ve tasted from Whitewater, but a good standard overall.

Light golden lager with frothy white head. Clean floral ssaz aroma with resinous tones. Pineapple and light malt body with steady stream of bubbles. Bitter moreish finish.

TimE (3108) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 12, 2011
Light mildly sour, corn and grain. Nothing special, but a step up from the average mainstream lager

Bottle - slight malt aroma with some floral aspects. Sound malt flavour with a hint of hops, nice finish.
