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.

quite bitter and dry. The champagne yeast has a clearly noticeable effect on the beer and I dont like it.

AdiBeer (1525) - 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 (4144) - 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.

edsspoon (537) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle - lively golden body with a foamy crisp white head. A foul aroma of cereal and must. Taste of sugar syrup and grapes - strangely like white wine. Light body, medium carbonation. Strange.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
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.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from The Pullman in Folkestone. Pours out in a clear golden colour with airy head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and flowers. Taste of fresh hops, citrus fruits, flowers, pine, spruce and light herbs. Welcome light sour finish. For a lager, this is a very drinkable and nice lager I enjoyed.

Clear, filtered and golden. White foam. Smell of yeast and something sweet(unknown). aqueous, no bitterness, small taste of sweetness. No winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weordie (104) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a nice golden pint with a decent head. Aroma’s are a pleasant fruitiness but there’s no taste, it has a complete absence of taste. It almost felt like it was draining taste from my body.

AWS9 (506) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
On tap. Decent hazy gold pour, with minimal head. Light, fruity, mild hops, a touch of bitterness. Went nicely with a meal and quite drinkable overall. Nothing exceptional, but can’t complain really.
