Draught (keg) @various places in London. This is quite nice lager. Malts and hops are in balance, neither one is dominating. Great when you are thirsty. Why people are drinking imported lagers in pubs?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bb03/2016, ta idiosynkrasie. Much like a macro DE Dortmunder/Bavarian Helles crossover with the wafery-mineral malt base of a UK lager. Hints of pepper, starchy zest, lemongrass stalk. Powdery palate, hence not wholly refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a sampler. The aroma, initially, has a light acetone note to it, but this is soon replaced by grains and pastry dough with undertones of mineral water and spice. The pour is a brilliant and oily clear light straw hue with an effervescent quality and a white, dense, dirty head that has mild retention and light lace. The taste is a medium light, near balanced, bittersweet. The texture is thin but oily with a slickness and a mild zippy carbonation. The light body is composed of flavors of citrus peel, spice, minerals, and banana bread. The finish is mostly citrus peel with a spice and the aftertaste is mostly clean with bitter lemon and mineral water.
