Marduk (11112) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2018
Cask (Kingston Arms, Cambridge). Slightly hazy deep golden color. Medium size, thick off-white head, stays. Sweetish, grainy, light grassy hops in aroma. Light grassy hops and sweet grains in taste. Very nice, pleasant and balanced hopping. Very solid brew.

eastkenttom (164) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2017
Bottle from off licence. Lovely golden ale. Everything is right, the carbonation, mouth feel and taste. It's great. The perfect beer to convert lager drinkers. Thought the 5% abv might make it taste boozy, but it wears it well. This is highly sessionable, and I'll be buying this stuff often. 8.5/10.
