Can. Hazy pale golden with a frothy white stringy lacing head. Aroma of grain, cream, dust and grape skin. Tastes grainy and lightly bitter and astringent. Light bodied.

12 ounce can. Pours a mostly clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma of grain and malt. Taste is malt, grain, and a touch of citrus. On the sweet side. Average.

Draught in houston. Clear gold pour. Some grains and malts. I thought it was crushable

June 2016 - Can share in deepest Croydonia as ’Infamous Hijack’. Thanks to Leighton for supplying the goods. Dark yellow, clear, still, dense foamy white head. Aroma is airy, light malt, nothing really going on. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is watery, light and clean, sodawater, cracker malts, thin malt sugars. Nothing to see here. Someone has replaced my beer with sodawater. (2.3)

Scopey’s grand vertical. Thanks to Leighton for this Can. Light haze on this paleish gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Light malts, yes some CREAM, light floral sweetness. Mild lemony citrus. Whisper of candy fruits. Not bad.

Can big thanks to Leighton. It pours clear pale yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet, sugary, creamy, pear, apple, melon and white bread. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, mellow, bready, grass, straw, sugary and light creamy with a short, white bread finish. Light - medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Simple, sweet and bready. Fair.

Pours a slightly murky golden body with a thin cap that leaves spotty lace. Aromas and flavors of sweet malty grains with a old toast finish.

Hazy yellow brew with nice fluffy head. Looks good but smells like one of those sour beers and the taste is very tart and leaves a bad aftertaste. Another beer that wish I had found it in a single so I wouldn’t have 5 more to drink.
