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

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330ml from Fenwick, Newcastle):
Lively smelling beer with some grapes and floral notes to begin along with a sort of white wine aroma, no doubt thanks to the champagne yeast used in the brewing process. It is quite dry on the nose and pretty light too with a fair helping of flowery hops as well.
Clear and light amber colour with a thumb sized, foamy white head on top that stays quite well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass too.
Lots of floral flavours coming through and some grapes to start. There is a white wine taste that the smell hinted at and a little citrus thrown in for good measure. I could also detect some lighter malts coming through but not many.
Lively carbonation to begin along with a medium bodied and a rather dry feel to things. The beer was clean on the palate and quite crisp with a touch of bitterness in there. Overall the palate is quite a sweet one but pleasant nonetheless.
This one wasn’t a bad beer at all, it was certainly different but pleasant to drink in spite of this. There is a good flowery aroma that settles down a bit in the taste but is still good. I could have done with the beer being slightly more complex perhaps but it was still enjoyable and worth a try if you get a chance.
