jjsint (2833) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Keg tap at the St Radegund, Cambridge. Light yellow with a little white head. Pee, metal and grass aroma... Not as bad as Ive made it sound but not great. Taste is actually sweet and refreshing, an improvement on the smell. Heavily carbonated refreshing palate. Ok, not a great beer but Ive had worse lagers and it is certainly drinkable. And it seems to get better as it goes on, which is always a good sign.

Keg in the Ship, Dunwich, Suffolk. Straw with a light layer of white froth. Not much aroma. The taste is citrus with light spice and spome pleasant bitterness. Good lager.

Gluepot (593) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
This rating system really conspires against a beer like this, but it is a success nonetheless. The taste is lead by bready malt, with grain and light caramel sweetness following soon there after. Elements are well balanced and round out nicely as the taste grows in your mouth. Better than the numbers show!
