COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: filtered;
We use only the very best ingredients available, like the finest Liberty and Hersbrucker Hops and carefully selected Maris Otter Malt. That helps. Our brewing practices are inspired by the German Purity Law of 1527. That also has its merits, adding to the exquisitely crisp and refreshing taste. But there’s more to it than that – we are passionate about beer. So much so that we changed our lives to follow our hearts, and every beer we produce embodies that passion and commitment. It’s the extra ingredient that makes all the difference. Who’d have thought it, money really can buy you love. Serve chilled and enjoy.

Keg at Watershed, Bristol. Metal. Lots of fizz. Not brilliant. Not much flavour. A lesser lager.

Theydon_Bois (8743) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2013
Tap at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence, 15/05/13. Pale blonde with no head - she’s no looker! Nose is pale malts, grass, cereals, light citrus. Taste comprises light sugars, grass, citrus notes. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation - not too gassy. Ok lager.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2012
330ml bottle and on draught. I can’t stand brewers offering their wares in smaller bottles to hide an often over inflated price - I aways mark down for that reason! This is probably the best lager I have ever tasted with the possible exception of the same brewer’s 3.8. The aroma is deep and complex for a lager with notes of hop, malt as well as the usual lager smell. Appearance is a light yellow with an unfortunately short lasting head. Taste wise this lager has it all and a lovely malty aftertaste to finish. Imagine a lager with the malty aftertaste of a real ale and you have it in this beer

jackl (4645) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2012
Keg. Light golden color with a big white head. The nose is of banana and sweet grains, angel food cake. Quite sugary. The taste is light sweet, malty. More fresh banana, bread, and rainwater. The body’s light. Pleasant. Overall, a more than decent lager. Enjoyable.

Golden colour, white head. Aroma has some grainy malts, earthy, grassy hops. Little dry mouthfeel. Everything is light with this beer.

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2011
Small white head. Deep yellow body with light carbonation. Light strawy aroma with mealy notes. Dry-sweetish deep strawy malty oily taste with dusty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth, slick mouthfeel. Dry strawy resiny aftertaste with floral notes. Lovely dry edge to it. Fresh and drinkable. Very nice. (0.25l keg at Natural History Museum, London.)

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2011
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and caramel, leading to a lightly bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Draught at the Lamb and Flag, Oxford, England.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Strong grainy malty aroma. Flavour is grainy with some mild grassy hops. Grainy malty aftertaste. Not bad for a Lager.
