SamTheBarrel (385) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2014
440ml bottle, pours clear golden with a medium sized airy head that reduced quickly and left some lacing. Aroma of grains, hay and honey. Flavours of wheat bread, honey and spices. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Palate is light bodied, thin texture and medium carbonation. A decent lager, pleasantly surprised it’s less watery than I had expected considering the warm climate in South Africa.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 I’m not at all a lager drinker, but this lager I enjoy. More of a European style lager as opposed to American so there it has medium to high body. A sweet maltiness with a low hoppiness.
