reakt (951) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2009
Draught @ The East India Arms. Typical fizzy yellow beer, golden with a fluffy white head. Grainy and slightly sweet with mild hops. Nothing special but served it’s purpose and was better than oranje-bum on the day.

On cask at Bishop of Norwich. Orange brown colour. Prickly. Taste of grapefruit, grainy, fruits. Nice hoppy texture. Fair enough.

leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2007
Canned. Golden with a large foam. Aromas are corn, grain and almost green apple with some vanilla and corn. Flavours are gritty grain with fatty butter and light citrus. Quite dry on the finish.

4.7% Can from Morrisons.Yellow lager. Alcohol very present in the aroma. Flavour is quite sweet with some harsh alcohol. Seems cheap and rushed.

berkshirejohn (6654) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2007
Keg at the Kings Head, Hythe. A fairly basic lager; gold with a white head and light carbonation; rather sour aroma; fruity and creamy in the mouth, but quite acidic; and a predominantly acidic finish.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Quite good, fairly nice for a lager. Light amber in colour and fairly carbonated. In the same mould as Artois, but more refreshing. Probably in my top 510 beers of all time!

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2007
Canned. A pale gold coloured lager with a thin off-white coloured head. The aroma is skunky and corny with some buttery nasty unpleasantness. The taste is sickly and corny. A thin lager lackiing quality.

DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2006
Slightly confused. The keg version is a refreshing, thinly headed sweet malty lager bearing little resemblance to its German namesake. The 4.7% bottle I have in my hand has an unappealingly rusty nose, but pours with a well-retained snowy white head and has a slightly smoky malty graininess that is not at all unpleasant. If your (generic UK draught lager) options are limited at the bar, you could do much worse.
