COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mass-market brewery simply could not make a beer like this. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bursting with flavor, it has phenomenal body and freshness. Hazy to the eye, and full on the palate. 6 week brewing time. Barley, yeast, hops and water.

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
500ml bottle, Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Only just realised it’s South African, not German. Clouded apricot colour with a slender white foam. Shrub, earthy grass, rubber, black pepper and sesame aroma. Good oily unfiltered lager with bread and sesame malt beneath thick sappy and lemony hop. Creamy mouthfeel maybe lacking a bit of sparkle. Slight dry-out to finish. Good.
