Lambister (480) - - SEP 16, 2013
Pale golden colour, minimal head. Bready aroma like most lagers. Pretty dry and light bodied with some grassy hops. A refreshing pils like lager.

FatPhil (14868) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2016
330ml clear glass bottle (KKK Ruoholahti, Helsinki)
Has that nasty skunky stank as soon as you open the bottle, gee, thanks for using a clear glass bottle. Otherwise pretty bland and a little starchy. Light palate, a bit watery. Some messy esters on top of the bland malts, a bit fruity, but a bit sickly. Finish continues the sickly mess. Some hint of harshness I think it trying to be hops, but isnt succeeding very convincingly.

Bottle in the Yak and Yeti restaurant, York. Bright clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is light, semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Thin but clean pale malts, no paper. Modest lager character. Very modest tangy citrus. Light finish. Somewhat fresh air but tbere are many worse lagers out there.

kraddel (6853) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2016
Pours clear blonde, small white head. Smell is corns, intense, crispy. taste is weak. Mild bitterness, holow mouthfeel. the scent made me expect a bit of positivity, but the taste lacks everything I thought might have been there. Also, I really, really hate the fact how they place it in the market as a nepalese beer. These UK-brewers should at least be honest to their customers. hence the lowest score on appearance !

Vaalean kultainen, yllttvn paksun pienikuplaisen vaahdon tarjoava olut. Tuoksu, samoin kuin maku pasiassa hyvin tunkkainen/pahvinen. Ei tst raikasta saa tekemllkn.

PorterPounder (7612) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl. 500 ml bottle from Persis Indian Restaurant. Solid Indian type lager, slight haze to the medium golden pour, soft snow white head, nice bubble action. Some honey sweetness, pleasant grainy notes, went well with my Fathers Day Indian spicy Indian cuisine.

BlackBeerPG (428) - Darien, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2016
Taste: crisp airy, bitter, wheat, carbonated, an odd skunked nose. Gold, clear, soapy head. I wonder if bottle color added to stale flavor

crossovert (11794) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2016
660ml green bottle. Pale gold pour, skunky aroma. Flavor is metallic, not a huge amount of skunk, a bit sweet for the style, not repulsive.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
330ml bottle from Oakham Wines (Rutland): poured into a Duvel glass at home on 20th March 2016. Clear golden amber body, good, deep and full white blanket on top. Malty nose and flavour with a good hop bittering balance, one of the better UK brewed lagers in my opinion. Went down very well with some English Cheeses and salted biscuits.
