simontomlinson (228) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2017
Creamy white head stayed well on a hazy straw coloured, still body. Very smooth on the palate - minimal carbonation. This is a creamy lager - like a cross between a bitter and a lager. Mildly hoppy, grassy & hints of yeast. For a lager this is good.

Heidbummer (518) - SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Refreshing, slightly bitter, slightly sweet, hint of hops, a little bit floral. Its a very good lager - just perhaps too carbonated but that helps it be drinkable to the bottom of the pint. Quenching. Nothing groundbreaking but you dont need that all the time.

Towey1989 (2449) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of bready malts, some fruit, slight lemon and herbal, grassy hops. Taste of bready malts, some fruit, slight lemon, a little kali plus herbal, grassy and floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, slightly bready, grassy hops bitterness in the finish. A really well balanced cask lager, full of flavour but not that bitter. Sweet bready malts, a little citrus and a soft but lingering hop backbone. Great for its style.
