3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml can from Tesco. Served cold from the fridge as befits a beer drunk for refreshment. There is a pleasant fruitiness to this which suggests a more active yeast than is commonly used in lagers, or perhaps the temperature was slightly hotter during fermentation, or they didn’t ferment out fully. Whatever, it’s nice to get some malt character in a lager. The old fashioned hop, Cluster, is my kind of hop. Balanced and restrained and subtle. It is earthy and floral and fruity - bringing in a dusty and thirst-quenching bitterness, but also imparting a bright thin fruit, which complements and enhances the fruitiness of the malt. This beer doesn’t taste American at all - this is like something from Syria or Africa. It has a wild and wonderful crudeness and character and genuine flavour. It tastes of beer, not of hops, and the malt is rough and complex and quite delightful. I haven’t enjoyed a lager this much for ages. Not that I’m getting carried away, but I certainly would be interested in trying this again at a warmer temperature to see what it really tastes like.

Golden, perfectly clear, tiny white head. Malty aroma, with a bit of esters, and a touch of hopy fruits. Taste is rather clear, malty with very light bitterness. Refreshing, crisp, quite clear in taste. It’s ok, nothing super exciting.

Smells of wood sweet malts saltwater. Color is a light yellow Orange with slight white head that lasts for a bit. Really nice flavor featuring sweet malts and woody taste. Nice clean crisp smooth dry finish. Lightish body with super chipper carbonation. Really great lager need to try more from you guys. Nice work!

Gentle herbal hops and chalky grain in the nose, slightly fruity in the mouth with a hint of honey sweetness and a background of peppery hops, finish has a tingle of hop bitterness, a chalky mineral note and faint malt sweetness lingering.
