Notes: Our Lager is made in small batches with Naked Golden Oats and great Scottish pride and exuberance, which give it its full flavour and very smooth finish.

Unusually, as well as our own, unique Lager malt, we have added some Naked Golden Oats to the brew, which impart a satisfying smoothness to the finish.

Naked Golden Oats are grown without husks so that even more goodness and flavour can be extracted during brewing.

This beer is like a hybrid between a light hoppy ale and lager. It's nice and refreshing and doesn't have any bad after-tastes. There is some nice hop subtelty as well.

500 ml can, from Helgø MENY Sola. ABV is 4.6%. Clear and very pale golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of newmown grass, sweetish hints of candy. Fairly refreshing flavour, a tad on the sweet side, fairly decent herbal hops. Not too bad.

This one was a very interesting lager. Tasted like a mix of Helles, Euro lager and an old-school IPA all in one. Bitter, sweet, citrusy, malty, oatmeal-like and aggressively carbonated. Very intriguing, will gladly revisit.

It smells and tastes a bit sweet, golden straw, bla bla bla, lager beer. I do prefer their Gunpowder IPA, but here I got more flavor then I expected from this lager at 4.6 and the Canadian standard is 5 and not watery. I do wish this particular lager were cheaper because this is a beer I would pound on a nice day with the barbeque and smoker running hot. Better than American lagers I must say, but that's not much of a competition there. Yes I'm Canadian and yes I think American beer sucks so I give good alternatives good reviews. This of course is to be expected, naturally. This beer is well deserving of a good review far more than shitty fruity IPAs.

I believe I got this from The Beer Store near Hamilton ONT. It poured a clear golden with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had faint grain notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with a aluminum can flare. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's an ok beer.

Clear golden with very small particles floating (unfiltered?) Creamy small bubbles head dissapears quickly leaving a white film on top.

Weird perfumey-like aroma of green fruits, apples and pears. Not much else.

Taste follows the nose. It's a weird tasting lage. Don't get the take.

Mouthfeel is light but not watery.

Weird lager

De Corte Ingles. En copa Teku. Jugando a Avernum 5. 11 meses tras consumo preferente. Agradablemente maltosa, con punto acartonado que no la estropea y una sensacion aspera que supongo que sera de la avena que le da un buen cuerpo

From a 500ml can served straight from the fridge at 9 degrees Celsius into a pilsner glass. Best before april 2018.

Look: The beer pours a brilliant pale gold with 3cm of white, frothy head that settles into a craggy cap in 2+ minutes. No lacing and overall poor head.

Smell: Faint and leaning towards sweet. Some earthy and spicy noble hop aroma along with biscuity pale malts.

Taste: Follows the aroma with mild intensity and sweet balance. Faint hops and pale malts with an adjunct quality. The finish is short, faint, and leaning towards bitter with some minerality.

Feel: Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Crisp and smooth with no apparent alcohol.

Overall: Clean, refreshing, and thirst-quenching. Innis & Gunn lager is simple and to style but lacks life.

Pale straw colour with a good head. Light body with oats for smoothness. Nice crisp finish begs for another sip.
