COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg.
Helles pale lager. Hopped with a combination of British First Gold and Hallertau Perle, Freedom Four has an initial sweetness that slides into a hoppy bitter finish. Mid-weight body and great smoothness ensure it’s easy-drinking, while lively natural carbonation refreshes through to a crisp finish.
Freedom Four is available in 50 litre kegs, along with a range of dispense options, point of sale material and glassware.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle @ Flat Iron. The pour’s deep gold with a small, frothy white head. The aroma’s lightly toasted malt, some grain. Honey comb and sweet breakfast cereal. The taste is more honey. A bit of white bread and grape. Soft shaggy tobacco leaf hop presence. Mildly toasty on the finish. The flavors aren’t in complete harmony. Light body, crisp. Decent with food, but not head of the class by any means.

SimonTWilliams (15) - Solihull, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2012
Served on tap in the magical Post Office Vaults in Birmingham. A pure, English lager voted best 4% beer in many a good beer competition. Golden in colour, this lager keeps it's fizz throughout. Pleasant in taste - makes you proud to be British! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at The Firefly, Worcester with mum & Loz 19.05.12 Gold with white head and a busy carbonation. Lovely lager with a fuller taste than many admittedly corny but even so ever so nice. Refreshing with a nice sweetness, most enjoyable. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
