COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A malty body followed by a gentle level of hops. Smooth and gently carbonated.Calvors Premium English Lager Beer has a malty body, followed by a gentle level of hops. It is smooth and only gently carbonated, so is very good with foods and particularly those that are spicy. Being double cold filtered it is a beautifully clear, polished beer.

Bottle from Waitrose, Stevenage. Yellow-blonde with a thin head. Floral, but not so pleasant nose with a better lager-malt taste with an ale texture.

This rating system really conspires against a beer like this, but it is a success nonetheless. The taste is lead by bready malt, with grain and light caramel sweetness following soon there after. Elements are well balanced and round out nicely as the taste grows in your mouth. Better than the numbers show!

Bottle at The Cambridge Chop House, Cambridge (Lozs works Christmas Do) Monday 16th December 2013 Sweet lager its ok for the style if a little bit corny and even a bit buttery at edges, actually too sweet and not that refreshing I am drinking more sparkling water than I am this!

As ’Premium Suffolk Lager’. Pale gold beer, light suddy head. Light malty nose. Light crisp palate. Light malt - almost creamy. A little tiny bit of hop bitterness. Finishes crisp and zingy but with a metallic taste that skews what is an otherwise decent lager.

berkshirejohn (4671) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2012
330ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring as Calvors Premium Lager at an ABV of 5.0%. Pale straw with a ring of white head and light carbonation; the aroma is of Saaz hops, leafy and slightly spicy; crisp and dry with a fruity apple flavour; and a clean finish. Like the 3.8 this is so much better than the average macro lager.

Bottle 330ml. @ chriso [ chrisos festive get-together tasting ].

Clear light to medium yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, hay, grain, toasted, sweet malt. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, sweet malt. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20111230]

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 330ml bottle, best before 240512, drunk at 2011 Festive tasting on 30 December 2011. It’s good to see British brewers making "proper" lager but often they seem to fall between two stools - better than the usual macro fizz but not reaching the level of the genuine (good) European stuff. I thought his one suffered a little from that. Clear gold with a diminishing head but decent carbonation. Not too fizzy. Mellow mouthfeel, maybe a bit soft. Light biscuity malts on the nose and palate. I’m not sure what style of lager they are going for but I tend to prefer the dry, North German style with plenty of hop bite. This was a bit soft and sweet for my taste. OK but didn’t really excite.

At Chriso New Year 2011/12 tasting. Clear pale gold lasting white head. Toast. Some bland malt. Rubbish

suprchunk (2336) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Fizzy yellow pour. Small white head that is quick to leave the party, but leaves some lacing behind as evidence it was there. A slight corn aroma with some malt hidden away. Not much else. Sweet roasted corn with a distinct dryness. Much like a typical macro lager with a tiny bit more body and flavor. Not that the flavors are actually good, though. I’ll pass next time.
