Leighton (22298) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, light yellow-gold with a small, foamy white head. Dough, cereal and light hay in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, cereal, hay, light zesty citrus, faint grassy bitterness. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Crisp finish, lightly sweet with mild cereal, dough, faint straw. Very basic but pretty refreshing. Kind of watery but yeah, pretty easy drinking.

Pale yellow with a undulating white foam. Delicate herbal hop and honeyed biscuit aroma with hints of chamois leather. Fine soft taste without adjuncts or flaws; clean shrubby German hop, cut grass, thistle, hay mellowing into bread and honey. Top lager than wouldn’t embarrass itself in Munich.

Gary (2063) - London( born and raised), Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2011 (500ml ,pasteruised bottle) Ok this shit is ok : its headless and soulless but it retains a nice buttery, bready sweet palate , with herbal hop bitter notes; its not too dismilar to a Helles .

sm89walt (2080) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2010
500ml bottle. Poured with a mostly lasting, creamy, foamy white head atop a yellow-orange body. Standard lagery grain aromas but a nice crisp hoppiness and sweetness. Delicate hop flavour profile, some grainy sweetness and a dryish, subtly bitter end. Light, moderately carbonated body with a short finish.

johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle. Golden and low on carbonation with a small head. Medium body with some sweetness that lingered. Pleasant but a little overdone on the sweetness for my taste.

Rune (13503) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2010
500ml bottle bought from a M&S food store at Leeds City Station. One-Finger, loose white head. Straw-golden body. Vaguely smell of dry malts, hay and water. Cheap malty flavour in the direction of cardboard. Crisp, oily and lively carbonated (hotel room, 11.07.2010).

fonefan (51064) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2010

50cl bottle. Straw coloured with a thin white head; grainy aroma; crispy grainy flavour; delicate and biscuity finish with a hint of wet cardboard.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle, from Marks & Spencer, consumed on 30 July 2009. Decent enough pale gold appearance. Otherwise entirely uninspiring. Loads of cardboard. Fairly dry. Pretty poor stuff all round.
