Hmmm... Somehow, I expected this to have been rated a little higher by other raters. It’s been around for ages, and seems fairly well thought of locally, in the North East of England, with beer people I talk to. I just never got round to it, not finding it on draught until installed at the Fat Hippo in Newcastle: I had a pint and a half there last night. Beautiful bright gold, with a white head that faded to leave lacing around the glass. Digestive biscuit and floral aroma. Well balanced bitter-sweet flavour, again with floral notes. Definitely crisp and refreshing, and fuller bodied than most pilsners. Given my affection for this style of beer, I found this an unalloyed pleasure, but I can understand others might be a bit more critical, and underwhelmed.

A pleasant lager, It’s aroma is a little bitter, but it’s taste is very crisp and refreshing. Grzesiek79 (4435) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 15, 2016
Dobry pilsner w stylu czeskim z chmielami niemieckimi. Piana sniezno-biala, trwala, barwa jasna zlocista lekko mglista. Aromat melona i ananasa. Przyjemne lekko slodowe i srednio nachmielone, dobrze zrownowazone. mr_h (5943) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Cask, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled at Kay’s Bar, Edinburgh on 18 Aug 2016, sour cereal aroma, pale golden with a thick creamy head, grassy, cereal flavours, creamy, moderate sour finish. gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2009
Pours carbonated clear copper with a pure white foam head. Aroma is bitter hops and straw/wheat. Tasts is very similar to a czech style pilsner lager, plenty of bitter herbal hops, straw, grass and a dry bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Pretty tasty, and unusual to find such a well made lager.

Porter, London. Slightly hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, vanillaish and mildly vanilaish. Flavour is being quite much the same in a nice balance. Is this really a pils? Tastes more like a golden ale to me.
500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Lime, biscuity malt and grain in the aroma. Lemon, lime, tea and some earthy notes in the taste. Drinkable enough, but I feel it’s lacking something overall.
