Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with medium white foamy head. Aroma is malt, grain, lemon, hops, hay and hints of iron. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter and light to medium acidic. Body is light oily with sparkling carbonation. Finish off medium long and mostly bitter with notes that follow the nose plus some sugar, dandelion and woody notes.

Head? What head? Golden in colour, like apple juice. Taste is golden apples, though faintly. Just another boring English brew.

Trolleo (1411) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 15, 2015
A bit hazy golden color, big white head. Malt and hay aroma. Malty taste, medium sweetness. Thin body, soft carbonation. Drinkable water. //stella

veceo (1322) - Pula, CROATIA, - SEP 16, 2015
Hazy golden color, average sized white head. Aroma is grainy and pretty much empty. Macrolager basically. Taste is also weak. Malty, slightly fruity and citrusy. Light body, average carbonation. Really not my cup of tea.

Yup crisp and refreshing . Doesn’t leave lot in the mouth but rather cleanses palate. Crisp apple?. I agree one to wean the lager drinkers and for BBQ. Glad tried and enjoyed it.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 2, 2015
It looks the goods. Pale gold with a puffy white head and plenty of sparkle. I hope this has travelled well as it’s a fair old way from London to these shaky isles. Light, zesty aromas of citrus peel are the first impression with maybe some green herbs as well. It doesn’t exactly leap out of the glass. The flavour is fresh and of green gooseberries, white currants and thyme. There’s a lovely bubbly carbonation across the tongue that makes me wonder that if it has come this far, I wonder wonder wonder what it is like closer to home, or even at its home. I’ll have to find out.

flying_pig (1439) - SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2015
500ml bottle from newsagents near Kings Cross, London (£2.69):
Despite being my only choice when I picked this one up I wasn’t disappointed by this one, sure it was quite a standard beer but the sweetness at the start kept things interesting & enjoyable whilst the balance was good & it went down easy. It’s definitely not a classic but I liked it & I’m glad I picked it up rather than revisiting something average that I’d already tried before.

DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle conditioned. Yeasty, hay aroma. Clear golden beer with a lacey white head that fizzles fast to a thin film. Taste is full but light in tone, hay, delicate crisp apple, with a bright lively mouth feel. Slightly dry finish. Refreshing and moreish.

eastkenttom (122) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Definite fayre for the lager-drinker. Tastes OK but too light to make any real impression. Good BBQ beer though. Clean tasting.

branko (67) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 5, 2015
0.5 bottle. Golden yellow color with thin white head. Bready, malty and fruity aroma. Medium sweet taste with bitterness after. Fizzy carbonation.
