wheresthepath (2237) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Keg at Pavlovs Dog, Reading. Bronzey-gold with a thin but lasting white head and a light fizz. Buttery biscuits with a touch of grass and lemon and a mild bitterness in the semi-crisp finish. As lagers go this isnt too bad.

FatPhil (15341) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2017
330ml bottle (Windmill JDW, Stansted)
Sweet malty aroma, honey is clear. Orange, a light etched head. Taste akso packed with honey and bready malts. Light palate, carbonation a bit high. Finish pleasantly perfumey with aromatic and bittering hops. Interesting lager, perhaps a bit sweet and fizzy. Filled a hole, and killed some time, thats all I was after, and it did that perfectly.

SilkTork (5666) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Keg, Encore, Southampton - a Greene King pub. Buttery lager served cold. Dusty noble hop bitterness in finish. Dull but drinkable.

rauchbier (3855) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle, from Waitrose. Faintly hazy lemon gold, thin and short lived white head, gentle condition. Initial peppery hop resin in the nose with lemon citrus, mango and toffee notes developing with time. Slightly fruity with a touch of lemon initially in the mouth before thinning and drying to a chalky yeastiness and muted hop notes, finish has a little grain sweetness but a dominant hop bitterness lingers longest.

johndoughty (5230) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle.Orange and clear with a small head. Bit of and industrial taste with no real outstanding flavours. Not very inspiring.

Biroholik (1127) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle to snifter @ White House, Luton
Kolor złoty, zamglony. Piana biała, kremowa, lekka. Drobne pęcherzyki, średni lacing. W aromacie słodowość, karmel, trochę kwiatw i ził. Bardzo subtelny cytrus. Lekki diacetyl w tle. W smaku słodkie, słodowe z akcentami dojrzałych owocw. Chwilami metaliczny posmak w ustach. Goryczka niska do średniej, chmielowy finisz. Lekkie do średniego ciało. Słabizna. Ni to Pilsner, ni APA, ni Lager. Nie warte polecenia.

Bottle. Clear, effervescent golden colour with a small and fading white head. Citrus, grass, straw, grain and pale malt aromas. Clean, crisp and fresh. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a soft to moderate length and intensity pithy citrus and grassy bitterness to finish.

330 ml bottle at the Flying Horse, Gatwick Airport. ABV is 4.5%. Golden colour, large white head. Aroma of flowers, toffee, honey, hay and dust. Surprisingly malty flavour, again with hints of honey and toffee, and a sharpish hoppy bite in the finish.
