pivoveskotsku (201) - - SEP 21, 2012
Light pale yellow lager colour, slightly grassy aroma and quite hoppy. Taste is very much like a grassy lager which has been hopped. The "hybrid" label is a tiny bit misleading as it’s essentially just a hoppy lager. That said, I think it is very tasty and I very much enjoyed it. Brilliant name, too!

spacecube (1082) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
500ml bottle, pours light straw gold with a fluffy white head. Nice hoppy bite with notes of mango and grape. Light bodied with thin texture, dry crisp fruity finish. Lively carbonation.

Tap at Bert’s Bar, Edinburgh.
Clear pale yellow beer with a small lacing white head. Aroma of herbs and fruits, light grass. Easy drinkable one with a fine hop flavor of fruits and herbs. Some character of lager yeasts.

Decent 'hybrid', nice taste but not much in the way of head. Not the greatest beer but definitely not one of the worst either.

spartakbarnsley (64) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 22, 2015
Disappointing! I was really looking forward to trying this, but to all intents and purposes it just tastes like a decent lager with a slight bit of hoppy spice and bitterness at the end. Also contains slight metallic notes that you’d expect from a macro lager. Not awful, and would probably be decent on a hot day with a barbecue - but could have been so much better. A rare miss from Williams Bros.

tiong (4147) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2014
500ml bottle from S-Market Ykkösrasti, Kuopio

BBE FEB 2016 - Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma of grass, hay, bready malts, lemon and citrus. Taste is smooth, crisp and grassy with loads of hay and hints of bready malts. Finish is sweetish, grassy and herbal with some hay and earthy notes. A bit stuffy and sweetish.

Veeery disapppointing. It’s like a nice IPA watered one to one. The hops are noticeable but they don’t save the beer this time
