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.

Delightful lager. Light, clean, fresh, hoppy. Won GOLD at International Beer Challenge 2012. I can see why. Lovely stuff. Well done!

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

one of the better lagers, really crisp. obviously the unortohodox re-ferment process is to credit here.

Interesting stuff - it looks like a lager but has a nose like a beer. Not sure it really works but it's actually quite tasty

Nov 2012 - Cold bottle.. Advertised as a lager. Fruity wine/champagne qualities, mild lager and mild IPA qualities too. Good mix of the styles. Sweet, vibrant, potent flavours. Liked it a lot. V drinkable and interesting. (4.1)

Feb 2013 - Sadly I didn’t enjoy it anywhere near as much as last time. The hops and wine qualities were dampened and so it was really just a more carbonated lager. I was eating some strong tasting food at the time though, but my feeling is that this was a watered down batch. Nowhere near as vibrant or interesting as the last bottle I had. Disappointing. (3.3)

0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. No head, lots of bubbles, as expected from a champage beer. The combination of champagne yeast and hops produced something similar to America Pale Ale, a floral bitterness. Still a bit on the mellow side of what it could have been, but quite refreshing.

Bottle at The Pullmann in Folkestone. That one is wonderful example how Lagers can score. Of course it has an easy drinkability but it also has that crispy taste and aftertaste, those nice aromatic hops upfront and it grassy taste. Wonderful Lager to cheer. Thumbs up.

Bottle from Waitrose 08.12.11 consumed 28.03.12 Light gold in colour, nice nose bit of fresh exotic fruit, reminds me a little of Kipling, really good nose. Taste does not quite live up to the nose but it isn’t bad, some soft fruit, sweetish malts, tiny bit dry, its not bad at all and when I finished I was looking for a bit more from the bottle, sadly it was gone.
