Slightly fizzy sweet malts with a touch of hops. Its a lager but a forgettable one which isnt worth the mark up Navers (219) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2017
On tap in Old School House, Glasgow. Pours golden with quickly disappearing head. Metallic aroma, irony and watery, cat piss, some glucose or maltose. Same for the taste, metal screws, sweet and skunky. ladycatford (1) - Chelmsford, Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017 does not count
Draught keg pint. Clear, mid carbonated, pale colour with orange hues. Small tight head although with very little retention and next to no lacing.
Aroma: Grassy with a citrus zing finish from the hops, light biscuit from the malt.
Taste: Lemony citrus which can become quite sour, which develops into a hop bitter finish.
Finish: Thin mouth feel means taste dissipates relatively quickly, finish is somewhat dry.
Overall: The citrus hop becomes too overpowering, leaving the beer unbalanced.

Tap at Callander Meadows in Callander, Scotland. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is bready with a glass note. Near med body. Flavor is bready with light grass/spice. Seems crisp. Not to be sought, but good for lunch wash. radassace (421) - SCOTLAND - APR 3, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a small white head. Get bread and cereal in the nose with a touch of lemon. Beer feels decent in the mouth for a lager, very bready and grainy in the taste, finishing with some lemon and a light hop bitterness. Quite sweet. Decent Munich Helles. ianwelby (1525) - SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Tap at Wetherspoon. Light hoppy aroma. Flavour is crisp, bitter and fruity. Not much by way of aftertaste but it’s a really drinkable beer.
