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.

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!

ManVsBeer (8697) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle @ The Commercial Hotel, Accrington. Golden-orange with a thin head. Has a good lager-malt nose, although slightly less stated in taste, but still a very palatable beer, and quite crisp.

Bottled ; Nice Cascade and Saaz aroma , like an ale and lager intertwined . Headless gold , looks wack . Drankz ...pretty floral and dry , a bit like Earl Grey Tea .. fruity peaches ,orange, spicy dry. Reminds me of Sam Adams Boston . Its pretty adequate .

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
bottle from Waitrose Sidford. Golden yellow with a small white head. Dusty hops dominate, with a shy touch of cardboard. No glory.

MrTipple (3587) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma: grain and cereal malts, some citrus. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, getting a bit grassy. Overall: OK for a Premium Lager, yet really nothing too exciting. Pint at The Champion, Bayswater.

Good flavor and nice finish. Poured for me more yellow. I would drink again.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
My son had a pint of this in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire: I grabbed a large portion of it (just to rate it on here). Golden, bright and clear look with the usual lager/pilsner white but thinning head. Mild hop nose with a crisp hoppy bite to the taste. Not getting over excited, but a decent enough UK brewed lager and a lot better than the mass produced Carling’s of this world.

A lager-beer that satisfied this ale drinker. It has a nice colour and an interesting taste. I’ll certainly go back for more.
