PanMarek (459) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2017
Slightly cloudy golden pour with scant white foam. Some fruit and grass in the nose. The taste is a little grassy and earthy, with a little more depth than one might expect from a lager. Light body and active fizz and a sour lager finish.

JorgeLee (2117) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2017
Bottle, Smiths of Smithfield (top floor). Fairly full amber colour, white foam. Pleasant clean beer, some toasty malt hints, a bit of spicy hop. Drank fairly well, didn’t amaze me.

jjsint (3121) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle from the Station Tavern, Cambridge. Deep gold treading near to the darkness of bronze. Pleasant apricotty aroma with toast and marmalade, and a bit of hay. Taste is a trifle harsh and metallic at first, then a jammy sweetness takes over. Unfortunately this is short-lived and there’s an astringent bitterness to the finish. A mixed bag, and while it’s certainly pleasant I find it hard to get overexcited. It’s just a lager (albeit a fairly pleasant one).

Gluepot (640) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2017
A real revelation. Nice roasted grain body with fresh citrus and earthy hops, a dash of pepper and some dark berries. Lovely balance, refreshing and innovative.

kwik-lime (1939) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Keg at the Waterloo Tap. Hints of orange peel and grain. Clean and well balanced with decent hop character. Good craft lager.

caesar (7165) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2016
Tap @ the Rake, small sample. Almost clear golden color, short frothy head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit. Slight zesty, citrussy bitterness, bit sulphury. Good steam beer.

Cloudy medium amber, large frothy off-white head, good retention and lacing; aroma fruity, pale malts, floral touch; taste is medium sweet and bitter, malty, fruity, hoppy, with long duration, grassy bittersweet finish; medium body, oily texture, average carbonation; indeed different, a pleasant bitter lager.
