Remarkably smooth for a full-flavoured beer. Our founder’s intention was to combine the refreshing taste of a German lager with the distinctive taste of an English Ale without blending the two.

Bottle. Pass it up! The description says "smooth for a full-flavoured beer" - well the flavor police must’ve stolen the goods outta my bottle! Head was weak and fizzy. This was a pale lager-like beer with a pissy taste. All that was missing was the aluminum taste and it could’ve been a Coor’s product.

Got this one with colleagues at Pizzaros. Didn’t know what to take from the limited commercial beer selection. Not bad, faint, lack taste. The usual large distribution common beer.

Underwhelming cream ale. Flavour is pretty mild, but suppose that’s a bit more characteristic of a big brewer.

Bière jaune-orangée, incroyablement limpide, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmontée d’un col blanc étroit et peu dense, mais tout de même assez persistant. Arômes de malt pâle, grain, céréale sucrée, maïs, sirop de maïs… On décèle également quelques effluves houblonnés… ça semble, herbacé, feuillu, floral, végétal… Odeur peut-être un peu poivrée par moment… Nez peu intéressant, peu complexe et peu intense! En bouche, pétillement élevé sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais, il n’est pas farfelu de la considérer crémeuse… Au goût, entrée de malt pâle, grain, céréale sucrée, sirop de maïs… suivi d’un houblon aux tonalités principalement végétal (branchage, feuillage, saveurs un peu florales…). Par moment, la bière semble un peu citronnée en bouche. Finale assez sèche à l’amertume plutôt bien sentie. Goût correct, bonne intensité en bouche, mais complexité définitivement faible. La bière développe les flaveurs typiques d’un lager commerciale, mais en plus ronde, plus intense et plus amère. En ce sens, elle me semble bien répondre aux attentes qu’on peut mettre en elle…

Bright golden color with moderate activity. Weak 1 finger head that last around 5 minutes, and having faint legs. Flavors of corn syrup, sweet grains, faint lemon and herbal hops. Highly sugary and syrupy, at least not too corny. Light body with prickly carbonation. Light and short finish of thick sugars and roasted barley. Overly accessible and bland. Okay freshness, doesn’t feel too adjunct. Still it’s watery and not enjoyable. Overall bad quality craft.

Pours clear gold with a quick fading white head. Aroma is malt and bread. Taste is mild sweet, mild bitterness with a metallic aftertaste. Not bad but nothing special.

A smooth cream ale with a creamy body. A rich golden with a short head. No label! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ktwse (4887) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Pours clear pale golden with a finger of white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste is bready, malty sweet. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

Golden, clear no head. Mild sweet aroma. Sweet, malt with mild metalic bitterness in the aftertaste

wheresthepath (2334) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Can from Beers of Europe. Gold with a white head and a lot of fizz. Looks like a macro lager if I’m honest. There’s a brief moment of brightness up front - a little twist of lemon and a bit of vanilla- but it all too quickly descends into fizzy, metallic sweetcorn juice. There’s a tiny hint of grassy hop in the background, but not enough to distract from what is a pretty dreadful beer.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
Appearance: clear straw with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: biscuity malt, corn adjunct, faded grassy hops. (4/10) Taste: mild sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, medium duration slightly astringent and metallic finish. (2/5) Mostly inoffensive - although the finish actually is, a little. Really, just your basic pale domestic lager, with only the faintest of nods to the cream ale style. (4/10)
