Two bottles at Cafe21 Newcastle. Amber with a dense white head. Quite malty/fruity for a pilsner. Some nuts, cereal, and a slightly doughy flavour as it warms. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation. Just okay. tinylightsrecs (437) - - MAR 13, 2015

Dark amber, small off-white head. Aroma is mild slightly flora. A decent amount of malt flavours, slightly woody, floral notes, fruit peel. Not exceptional but pretty good. Tom303 (137) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Dark amber, lovely sweet malt and fruity maroma with taste to follow and perfect balance of rich bitter sweet flavours. Quite sweet and fruity for a pilsner, but good balance overall. Really good lager. AshtonMcCobb (6846) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2013
50cl bottle thanks to John Brash.
Appearance - a darker golden than expected. Decent head retention.
Nose - cornflakes with just a hint of green beans.
Taste - more green beans and pale malt but just a touch of cardboard, though I’m not sure it’s an off taste. It’s more like a note that culminates from the combination of hops and malt.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a long dry finish.
Overall - not bad, quite solid really. zacgillbanks (5423) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2013
