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.

330 ml bottle from ICA Stakkevollan. The words on a well-made label made me curious, no pun intended. I am afraid the cap on the bottle I purchased was not completely sealed. as there was little or no head nor carbonation to speak of. Body is clear and has the golden colour of late summer grain fields. Aroma is invitingly sweet with notes of citrus and hops, which continues in flavour along with some malts. Except for the lack of carbonation the palate is quite dry with some bitterness. Goes down well, and I believe an unspoiled bottle would put this well above most commercial lagers. (At home, 280314).

330ml bottle from Waitrose. Looks like a basic pale lager. But with a very defined flowery aroma and subtle aftertaste. Nice.

Flaske fra Ica. Gul, klar med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter malt og korn, kanskje litt sitrus. Smaker standard lager. Medium kullsyre, kort ettersmak.

Gul farge med hvit skum. Lukter malt og litt sitrus. Noe oljete i munnfølelse. Lettdrikkelig, ordinær lager.

Boring. Quite nicely sweet, and golden and good-looking, but lack of character and taste.

Decent lager , but can’t get excited about many lagers. More flavour than mainstream , but I still prefer beer,

imdownthepub (10579) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Gold with fizzed white head. Lightly carbonated lager with a sweetish malty body, quite fresh in nature and an easy, lemony hop flavour along with a sweet pineapple note. Easy drinking and pretty decent for what it is.

Looks like a standard lager. Golden in colour. Has a very flowery aroma. Slightly woody. Tastes like cereal. Very subtle aftertaste. Quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheRatKing (122) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Let’s see, pale yellow, fizzy head swiftly dissolving to nothing, hmm... Nose has a bit of hops to it though, which is promising. Taste is pretty mellow, decent hops bitterness, some malty sweetness for the balance. Dry without being unpleasant, fairly smooth finish. It’s a lager, but not a bad one at all. I could rather enjoy this on a hot day.

Bottle 33cl. Golden, clear with a short white head. Aroma of malt, fruits and lemon. Light bittersweet with a soft fruity end.
