3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at BD ShepBush. Pours crystal clear deep burnished gold, persistent creamy tight offwhite head that leaves good lace. Nose of spicy Saaz, hay, bread, slightly caramelised cereal. Tastes medium sweet, light caramel and full cereal malt flavours, moderate to medium bitter with prominent clean, spicy woody hop character, touch of buttery diacetyl. Medium light body, slightly oily slightly creamy texture, moderate to softish fine carbonation, lingering clean woody spicy slightly herbal hop flavours. Wow, this is really nice - if all lager tasted this good I’d drink it lot more often...
