Pleasant lager, sweet malt dominates, a little bit thin in the mouthful which lets it down slightly. Still enjoyable.

Niall73 (2430) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2013
Cask @ the new rose. Ever so slightly hazy golden colour, thin bubbly head. Aroma is malt and citrus, slight wheatiness too. Slight carbonation not much. Flavour malty and sweet with a little booze at end. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

worldbeertaste (1803) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Clear pale thin light goldish orange with a white soapy lacy lingering head. Smells stale, with hops, citrus, flowery and malt. Medium to full thin body. Tastes of sweet grape, light malt with a soft hop bitter finish. More compex than it seems. With some melon and a bit of corn. Decent and interesting.
