A 330ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2014. Acquired a while back from a supermarket. The label calls it a craft lager brewed with new world hops.

A: Poured into a tulip. A bright golden hue with faint floating sediment and light carbonation. Yields a large head of frothy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding and disappearing.

S: Aroma of light malt with hints of stewed leaves, husks, subtle earthiness and faint overdone veg. Unimpressive.

T: Tastes of light malt with a dry finish. Notes of light grain, earthiness, stewed leaves, vague husks, faint overcooked veggies and a twinge of cardboard. Highly attenuated, followed by a restrained, leafy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with soft carbonation and decent body for the style. Slightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of acrid stewed leaves and weak malt.

O: Not one to be proud of - a shame as Fullers make many fine brews. Looks alright, however the aroma and flavour are bland and vaguely unpleasant. Little hop action to speak of and lurking off-notes spoil the character. Body is OK. Not especially memorable; no need to seek it out.

Brazen yellow labelled bottle from a normally conservative brewer.

Golden colour with a nice long lasting frothy head.

Light hops to the nose - expected more.

Nice citrusy flavour but with a pleasant malt to balance. Some spice.

Well carbonated - fresh and crisp.

A good lager at the end of a hard working summers day.

33ml. bottle. Poured in to a lager glass. Very small white head. Blonde colour. You can smell citrus things. Good carbonation with a light body. Finally i can say that it's an fresh and good lager for summer time.

Nice one.
Pours a clear golden color with an average white head.
The aroma is pleasantly fruity and citrusy and goes well with some hoppy smell.
The taste is sweet at first, followed by nicely balanced, creamy-like and filling body, finishing with decent bittery taste.
Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Very nice surprise.

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.
