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.

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle shared with Lyoli on the Eurostar, bound for Brussels; this will probably be the last lager of the weekend. Pours cloudy gold with a forthy, pure white foam head. Doughy malts nose with sugary white bread notes. Medium sweet flavor with strong dough, faint spices, faint hay. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes mostly mellow, though there is a slight bready crispness with further notes of hay and some straw, very light notes of corn and cereal, some white sugar. It’s a very basic lager, but it’s also quite refreshing in its simplicity.

harrisoni (16056) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
500ml bottle from St Pancras Sourced Market. Cloudy pale gold with thin white head. Bready toasty lemon aroma. Decent unfiltered lager. I kinda liked it. Good bready cereal malts with some good lemony almost sauvignon blancy flavour. Yes, it’s decent, no off flavours no cardboard, yeah that’s pretty good.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. A hazy, pale golden beer topped by a small, white head. It’s slightly wortish on the nose, grainy and with a nice fruityness. Grass and hay. A bit sweet on the palate I think, with pale malts, fruityness and some pine cones and grass. Medium body and a pleasant carbonation. Fruity, grainy finish with a little acidic touch. A decent one, although a bit boring. 140927

Oakes (14094) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2012
Cloudy dull tan. A good head and a stoneware krug away from being a good-looking kellerbier. Aroma is appley, a bit malty. Medium body, too fruity, not enough bitterness or leafiness, lacks freshness, too yeasty. Basically, this tastes like a low-end kellerbier, like the getrankemarkt stuff, not the village brewpub stuff.
