High Wycombe Walkabout. Red Squirrel Tap Room. Keg. Almost clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Thin malts do have some lager character. Mild floralness. Dry seltzer. Floralness gets bitterish on the thin semi dry finish. Thin and dry.

November 2016 - Keg at The Red Squirrel Emporium, High Wycombe, as ’Red Squirrel The Mad Squirrel’s Flying Squirrel’. Thanks team! Golden yellow, clear and still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is dusty, lager malt, cereals, cornflakes in particular. Body is light with tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is light grains, cereals, dusty hops, musty and generic lager vibes. Overall, an above average lager. (3.0)

On draught at The Red Squirrel Brewery Shop Emporium, High Wycombe, Bucks. Gold with white head. There is a light, grainy maltiness to this, hints of sweetness with a honeyed note. Lemon / lime later on. Quite a reasonable Blonde Ale, lager type beer. It’s fine.

ThirstyBird (2992) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
On tap at the Brewery Shop in Berko. Pours a clear golden yellow with a limited head. The smell is toasted grain, grass. The taste is grain, grass, a hint of marshmallow ending with a decent crispness. Light+ in body with a slightly lower carbonation level. A heavy, somewhat sweet pilsner. It’s OK for a British attempt but doesn’t stand up the the good Czech or German pilsners.
