Bottle 50cl @ Frankfurt airport. Pours hazy straw colour, small white head. Grass, malts, hay in the aroma. Smooth, grassy, malty flavor rich8880 (51) - - JUL 16, 2017
Bottled. Cloudy golden yellow appearance with plenty of carbonation. Not a strong aroma - yeast/dough dominates. I’m struggling to describe the taste - not pilsner, not weisse, not a sharp hoppy lager. Something in the middle - mild banana with a subtle bitterness. Nice on the palate but not overly distinctive.

Can from Waitrose, Rickmansworth. Hazy Lager, with a lot of zesty, fruity hops in there. Soft palate, and very drinkable. Surprisingly good. Towey1989 (2811) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2017
Can. Pours a hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon sherbet, slight grass, bready malts, subtle spice and some herbal hops. Taste of lemon, grass, grain, some bready malts, subtle spice and slight herbal hops. Light to medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, bittersweet, lemony, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Well hopped for a lager but also quiet sweet. Decent for its style.
