Poured on tap at Jacksons on George.

Pours a pale straw colour, heads hangs around a while, and nice lacing.

Aromas of hops, in Pilsener, not lager style.

Taste is also Pilsener, hop driven, and citrus.

HOWEVER - carbonation is a real problem here, with sherbet-like tingling insistence on the tongue, which kills the remaining flavour.

A good effort, let down by the above trials.
