Old Rating. Bottle. A pointless sweet lager without any hops. Really one of the worst lagers that could possibly be brewed but in fancy packaging. BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2011
[330ml bottle, Waitrose, Edinburgh] Like Christmas when you open this, with the paper covering. Pours clear gold with a pillowy white head, which reduces very quickly to almost nothing. Thin, slightly soapy on the palate. Some grassy hop but really not much else. Slightly fruity, almost banana-like aftertaste, but really not that dominant a flavour  DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle from Waitrose at home with mesandism. Alround rating: Thin, sweetish, poor quality malts, little hop character. By the time iv finished my quarter of the bottle it was completly flat. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Tom. Spewed out of the bottle with considerable force. Pale gold with a thin white head. Full on corn and cereal aroma. Similar flavour with a hint of germoline. Thin and lifeless. Dull as hell and I really don’t see the point of the posh packaging and the fanfair description. Blah. peter48er (186) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2008
Bottled. A nice refreshing lager type beer with a very short lived white head. OK if you like this sort of thing and I’m sure would be very enjoyable in a normal English summer (whatever that is)!! Not really my thing but no worse, and probably a little better, than the other 2 beers I’ve drunk & rated whilst cooking this evening.

Bottled. A pale gold coloured beer beneath fancy "boutique bottle". A decent white head, but it’s short lived. An above average lager, but then Hepworth know how to brew. Some fairly nice floral hops and some grainy sweetness within a creamy texture. Had this staright after mowing the lawn - what a cliche - and it went down nice for that, but it’s not a World beater. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2008 What exactly is this? Boutique Beer? Elegant black and gold wrapper encloses a 330ml bottle of fairly ordinary lager. Bright gold, white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma. Sweet taste. Sharp bitterness. Presumably Waitrose believes there’s a market for this oddity. rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle, Waitrose Lincoln. Gold, thin white head and low condition. Gentle fruity grain and slight herbal hoppiness in the nose, a little thin in the mouth with some delicate dryness and a little flowery hop note, gentle dry bitter finish with a trace of grain sweetness lingering.
