4.13/5  rDev +25.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

330ml brown bottle poured into a Hobgoblin pint pot.

A. A crystal clear pale amber coloured beer with a white bubbly head that shrank fairly quickly down to a thin foam.

S. Floral, grassy, biscuit malt aromas dominate. Some faint citrus nuances too.

T. Slight toffee, biscuity malt character and a not too bitter finish to end with.

M. Medium bodied

D. A clean, easy drinking lager. Doesn't feel like a 6.6% abv beer.

3.38/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

A- Golden or light amber with a big two and a half finger white head. Lasts well and leaves just a touch of lacing.
S- Aroma is grainy, a touch of caramel, and just generic sweetness.
T- Very sweet all around. There is caramel, light toast, some biscuit. Just a touch of grassy or floral hops. Could have used just a touch of hops.
M- For a pale lager it's too thick from being undercarbonated.
O- It's an ok lager but it's like it's stuck between being a pale lager or something bigger.

Serving type: on-tap
