Palme (4065) - Bergen, - OCT 4, 2012
On tap @ Bayswater arms. This is a clear golden one with a small fading white top. The aroma is light malty with a tone of cellar and smoke. The last part could easily be the guy smoking just outside. A bit anonymous, boring and definitely low. It’s soft on the carbonation and it has a thin almost watery body. Mild malty flavor, some leafs perhaps? Not really much going on her. Low on the bitterness as well. No, this was not something I have to try again, even if it wasn’t any bad flavors here. 20.07.2012

nazzty (1256) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
Weak and watery at first, but the aftertaste is actually the one that lifts this one up over approval. Nice and crispy and overwhelmingly refreshing.

MiP (15247) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle, 4.8%. Weak bready aroma. Clear golden colour. The head is white and frothy, but stable enough. The flavour starts off surprisingly malty. Then comes a more bready note, a bit like lager. The finish is nicely bitter, slightly creamy, and has a mild floral aroma hop.

DraftDodger (1035) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 11, 2016
Copenhagen 11/4 2016. 50 cl bottle from Føtex. Silhouette of London and a golden goat on the label. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam - almost transparent. Aroma is malty sweet with a little wet cardboard and a little sourness. Pretty strong carbonation for an English brew. Taste is medium bitter with a little sweetness for balance. This is not horrible or anything like that - but it actually reminds me more of a standard German pilsner than an English beer.
