Had on tap. Mostly clear bronze body with a thin white cap but solid lacing. Euro macro "esters" to the bready yeast and grains lead the nose. Taste has some lemon in there, but mostly mediocre grains and yeast. Feel is sneaky crisp though, light, crushable with good carb for style. Nothing special but a nice lager change up when in UK

Sample from keg at the brewery. Golden colour. Yes, the aroma and flavour have more hops than your average industrial pale lager, but also some unpleasant sidenotes that I find hard to pinpoint - "unfresh" and unpleasant in some way. I just didn’t like it much, and won’t bother to buy it again.

On tap at the Cabbage Patch, Twickenham, London.
Look: The Lager is Clear Yellow with a white head, visible carbonation.
Smell: Slightly Hoppy, along with a Malt, slightly lemony in nature.
Feel: Feels like a proper lager in the mouth, the head is frothy and it doesn't feel as heavy as a beer such as Guinness to drink, quite enjoyable to have on the side while enjoying a night out with friends.
Taste: Slightly malty with again citrus on the side. I would also say it has a rather hoppy flavour.

Overall: A quite enjoyable lager to drink and reasonably priced for the quality of the drink on tap, would reccomend for others looking for a London lager.

On-tap at Fuller's London Pub, Heathrow Terminal 2, London, England

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense bright white head that has excellent retention properties and hardly died down, also coating the sides of the glass with a layer of bubbles.
S: Light aromas of grainy and bready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light to moderate flavors of grainy and bready malts. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't bad for an English lager as it is quite malty and has just enough hops to mask any sweetness and provide a light amount of bitterness.

Serving type: on-tap

L- Darker than yellow, more a very pale amber. Clear, pours with 3mm white head.
S- Light, just some grains.
T- Quite dry, that dry note continues building into some dry hops. Typical lager Taste palate; nothing distinctive or hipster/off-piste here.
F- Quite crisp, refreshing.
O- It comes over as an ok lager, though with no particular distinctive aspects to note. I don't note 'anything wrong' or out of balance. The lable refers to 'Bold, refreshing citrus notes...' but I do not register that at all, ie zero citrus notes for me. In such circumstances I ask my wife to have a sip to let me know what she thinks, without my saying what I thought, or letting her read the lable. In short, she said she got a brief glimpse of fruit on the first sip only, too brief to associate it with any kind of fruit, and no fruit notes thereafter, but otherwise it'd be a refreshing summer beer. For me at this price I haven't found a reason to buy it again.

At the George and Devonshire - Chiswick

Full white frothy head that lasts, clear light yellow gold, lots of fizz, clear

Clean, sweet, biscuity pilsner malt, low lemony, herbal, citrusy hop

Clean, dryish malt and a decent balance of grassy, lemony hops. Bitterness is soft. Has a slight flavor of fresh cucumber (?)

Medium, lots of dextrins, ample co2, leaves a sugary and slightly astringent afterfeel

One of the better mass produced lagers around

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Crystal clear bright gold in color, it tops with thick frothy white head that quickly dissipates with rather short retention and leaves almost no trace of lace.

In a nose, citrus, grapefruit, floral, herbal, grassy, all of these aromas are derived from hop while malt is there too with its grain, biscuit, and some caramel.

The taste is led by malt as the main structure providing notes of biscuit, sweetness, and grain. Hop reinforces and adds some bold crisp of citrus, grapefruit, and some spice as well as herbal and grassy touch. The end unfolds with some suggestion of hop bitterness.

Light to medium body with quite smooth mouthfeel and good lively crisp carbonation, the feeling is refreshing with a dry and clean finish.

Decent and easy drinkable Lager offering from Fuller’s, it is crisp, clean, and very refreshing. Good sessionable of course.

Pours clear straw into a tulip glass from a 300ml can. White head initially 2 fingers high diminishes to surface froth quite quickly. The brew is visibly carbonated, and leaves no lacing.

Nose is mellow, sweet malts, caramel, lemon, grain, elderflower, and nectar. The flavour is very similar with citrus notes, subtle malts, and a nice grainy aftertaste with biscuit hops. There is a bitterness but it's very subdued and only shows face on the swallow. There is a slight aromatic quality to this beer, evident in the finish.

In the mouth it feels carbonated, light, and crisp. It isn't as thin as I was expecting, with even a slightly oily feel to it which makes it very pleasant drinking. All in all I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, I don't usually go for lagers as they tend to be rather samey, but this one is nicely balanced, refreshing and tasty.

L: Pale amber (becomes orange or yellow depending on the light). Clear, with no carbonation. A thin head that recedes to nothing. No lacing.

S: Malt, citrus hops, some grains.

T: Tastes up-front like water with a slice of lemon added. Sweet malt comes through later. Minimal hoppy bitterness. No lager characteristics at all.

F: Flat, thin, watery.

O: Looks and smells more like an American amber lager (that has lost its head) than a European pale lager. Tastes like neither. Flat, insipid, a bit lemony, very watery. Not a pleasant experience. Bottle had almost 12 months of shelf life left according to BB date.

Poured into lager glass.
Pours clear golden with fluffy off-white head, low retention.
Smell - grainy, floral, honey, spicy hops, biscuits.
Taste - more on a grainy side with some good hop notes, follows the nose in common.
Light body, crisp carbonation.
Actually good premium lager.

A fairly successful new age lager, more intrerested in being mild and aromatic, than bitter and overhopped.
