Wow. Fantastic lager from a great ale brewery. Brilliantly clear with perfect head. Crisp hoppy nose and extremely sessionable. It’s bitter for a lager. The hops are quite welcome as they hide some of the lingering DMS. But the DMS doesn’t get too in the way. I had a pint at the pub in Surrey and I would’ve scored higher, but the cans I brought back did not have as much flavor stability. Oh well, they’ll hammer that out when they open the production facility.

Can. Crisp gold with steady carbonation and a light soft foam head. Light but intriguing aroma; sweetness, grass and cookie. Should be more pronounced. Kind of meaty body. Hint of hop spice. Flavour is mixture of vegetable, grass and cookie with a bit of pepper in the back end and finish.

Can : Gold with small fast fading white head.Grainy nose. Bland slightly sweet malt flavor....basically a macro, but nothing offensive.

Can, from the Central City beer store
Golden colour with largish bubbles. Somewhat continental graininess in the nose with apple notes and herbal hops. Body is a bit thin - certainly the watery character emphasizes a lack of body, making it seem thinner than it probably is. Light apple notes come in late, and the malts are doughy. The finish is an amalgam of dough, apple, and water. Not CC’s finest hour.

Cans: Labelled Central City Premium Lager, is the Springboard draft different or is this just rebranded? Pours a pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is thin malty character with very light but noticable citric hoppiness and that is mirrored in the flavour. I’m not much for drinking lagers in general, but I thought this one was decent for value. Better than Bowen Islands Traditional Lager which is the only other comparable brew I’ve had recently.
