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.

tfredvik (1203) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2014
Pours a golden, very pale, watery-looking body with a small, white, short-lived head that leaves some lacing. Fairly strong aroma that is quite crisp, with notes of pale malts, citrus, caramel and faint hints of tropical fruits. In the moderate flavours the fruity notes are more of the generic kind, without any tropical notes. The taste is light to moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Not too bad.

Bottle 33 cl.
Delightfully sparkling, with yellow-amberish colour. Small, but nice, off-white head. Hops, citrus, light malt, some bread. The taste feels soft and balanced, whereas the palate is medium frizzy.

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours yellow with a big creamy head. Aroma is very fruity with yeast and hops, some crisp champagne-ish whiffs with minerals, wine grapes and Nelson Sauvin. Body is full with average carbonation. Flavour is bitter with peach and light tropical notes of passion fruit as well as some pepper and a sweet fruity finish. Very fruity, yet crisp. Curious indeed, as well as quite nice.
