COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 330ml bottles (not bottle conditioned).
Brewed in England with precision and passion to create a uniquely satisfying, drier, cleaner, fresher, lager beer. We use East Anglian malt, Saaz and Cascade hops, then re-ferment using Champagne yeast before adding a "dosage" of the rare and fragrant Nelson Sauvin hop, before cold filtering this unpasturised beer into bottle.

berkshirejohn (5161) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
33cl bottle from Waitrose, Bracknell. A amber pour with a billowing white head; floral aroma; soft grainy body with a gentle floral taste with a touch of citrus and some caramel; the hops add a limey zing and some freshness, making this a very well balanced fragrant lager.

Towey1989 (604) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of lemon and lime sweets plus grassy, floral hops. Taste of lemon, lime, grapefruit, grain, cereal malts and floral hops. Light bodied and a soft carbonation for a lager. A short, lemon zestiness in the finish. This is a cracking lager, tastes more like a pale ale.

Steinerik (1) - NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015 does not count
This fine, super-clean, crisp and noncahalant lager reminds me of an artist. A real "nutcase" who is annoyingly different from everybody you have ever met, but his work is still fabulous!
