A - Looks like amber nectar!
S - Pleasantly sweet with candy like aroma.
T - The sweetness was very apparent and welcome. Toffee/caramel flavour was dominant.
M - Very pleasing level of carbonation.
D - Extremely easy to drink and could spend an evening drinking this.
Got this at the TGI Fridays in Glasgow. Apart from this the beer list was one which would have you drinking water with your meal, but this was a very pleasant surprise. A fine brew and probably the best lager I have tasted.

Large fluffy head with good lacing. The head sticks around for a long time. Beautiful light copper colored beer. Very clear. Moderate carbonation with large bubbles.
Hops are dominant. Some malt sweetness in the background.
Tastes like it smells, but with a slightly harsh bitterness to the finish. There is just something about the flavor profile that I don't like. It is too harsh for the style. It tastes like the ingredients are good quality. It just comes across as unpleasantly harsh on the finish.
Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel, but that weird lingering harshness detracts from the experience.
This is a pretty good beer that for some reason just doesn't sit right with my palate.
