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.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Pale gold beer - clear. Short bubbly white head. Light dry palate. Smooth pale malt. Mild citrus. Like the feel of the champagne yeast in this one - comes over as a lager. Decent.

yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle. It pours a clear, pale golden, almost yellow, body under a small, dense, white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is rather fruity, oranges, canned tropical fruits, some grass and pale malts and a faint peppery touch. It’s medium bodied and smooth on the palate, perhaps a bit too smooth, with flavors of oranges, pine cones, pineapple, peaches and some pale malts, grass and freshly ground black pepper. I’d like a tad more bitterness, but I’m not complaining. Perhaps a bit sweet too, especially in the end, but some more bitterness would even that out. Or, preferrably, let the bitterness be more evident than the sweetness. Quite a lot of sweetness to in the finish. The price for this beer is ridiculous in Norway, but besides that it’s definitely a nice one. Think I’ll get a few more bottles of this. 130918

Leighton (14703) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, bright gold with a creamy, white froth. Some funky citrus fruits in the nose, pale biscuity malts. Light sweet flavor, some mis-placed funkiness, mango, lemon, light grass. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Funky tang to finish, some juicy citrus fruits. Odd. Not sure if this is totally intentional. As it is, not awesome. (2.9)Bottle at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear, light yellow with a fine, white film for a head. Grain, corn and hay comprise the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor with sugar, dough and faint grassy bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light sweetness to finish with mild doughy bread and hay. A weak effort here. (2.9)
