A fairly mediocre beer this was the main reason I did not even bother trying to get any more half pints before moving on to the next pub. It’s not a terrible beer so much as one that feels mailed in. If I’d done more homework I would have skipped it entirely.
Aroma / Appearance - A brisk white head with radiant yellow base glimmers with hope. Active carbonation shows signs of life. Lemon crisp, sweet sorbet, and noble hops give off inviting aspects. Somehow though it just smells mostly like fresh white toast.
Flavor / Palate - A mild bitterness lingers on the tip of the tongue. The skunky notes come a few seconds later ruining any hope that this might be a passable beer. Sourdough in the finish almost overcomes the deficiency but this is not a great beer. In fact nothing here was that great; just go down the road to a Brains pub instead.
Keg@Blackheath, SE London - Gold pour with a medium white head. Citrus hop mix with sweetish biscuit malt character. Have had this a few times through the years and I swear the recipe has changed/been tweaked over time but on recent tasting/rating better than I remember. Pretty good overall.

Keg at the brewpub, London. Pours clear gold wtih a fine, white cream head. Realy doughy stuff, plenty of white bread in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with crispy pale malts, dough, straw, very light grassy bitter bite, mellow grains. Light bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Crisp finish, some light dry hay and grains, pale bready sugars. Excellent, simple, super drinkable pils. cgarvieuk (24793) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2013

Cask@Welsh Beer & Cider Festival 2011. Yellowish golden colour, with a small white head. Aroma is bready malts, some earthyness and mild grassy bitterness. Flavour is being very similar with also some slight herbal and floral notes to it. Balanced. prawlie (1611) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
Half pint at Zero Degrees in Reading. Orange/golden pilsner with little head. Tastes a bit of a bog standard lager at first taste. Gassy, and smells of typical pilsner, not necessarily good. As pilsners go its quite decent. DruncanVeasey (8239) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2011
Zerodegrees, Cardiff. Limp appearance; served brilliant but without any suggestion of a head like a pint of lime cordial- not good enough. Fine green hop aroma oozing cut grass, thistle and honey. Tastes like licking a shed; pine sap and sticky gold resins; thistle, jammy apricot hints. Good finishing bite of bitterness with biscuit and vanilla afters, a sprinkle of lemon sherbet. Good clean hop profile. Mixed impressions- both of the beer and the place. Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 22, 2010
NOt so grasping as most pilsners, very refreshing and easy to drink. nice head features. mike_77 (6734) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2009
Quite pale looking. Decent head. A bit of grass in the aroma. Moderately full flavoured for a Pilsener and marginally better than the mass produced alternatives.
