On tap at The Cock & Bull Pub. The waitress brought it in a plastic cup. The beer was straw colored with virtually no head. There was very little lacing left. No aroma to speak of and very little taste. Quite watery to be honest. Over all not horrible but not like what I remembered in Scotland.

Bringing out those yellow beers in a green bottle and charging out the wazoo for it. Soft 1/3" white head. Still has a bit of skunk to it, not enough in my book, but I'm weird when it comes to lagers.

Taste, spritzy, lively, enjoyable. Decent Euro lager. Is this all barley? Seems lighter in the mouthfeel. Minor fruity alcohol impact. Its decent stuff at a premium price if you ask me.

Clear, straw color. Little head and no lace.

Very mild aroma of mostly grain. No notable hop.

Typical macro lager. Grainy flavor that leans to the raw rather than malted barley. High carbonation with a light body. I get some sweet fruitiness in the swallow and the aftertaste provides a brief hop bitter note. Overall, not bad for the style.

Enjoyable lager. A nice crisp taste with a bit of a distinct flavour. I will be having another.
