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.

Pint at Cherry Reds in Kings Heath. Goes down easily but lacks depth. Boring but not unpleasant

DanielBrown (3925) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2012
Keg at Jekyll and Hyde, Birmingham. Very fizzy lager, which is rather artifiically. Also very dry with a real plywood cheese biscuit finish. Not a cup of tea with me.

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
Keg at The Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Pale straw with fizzed head. Pretty standard kegged lager, the flavour is dominated by the gas, malty, thin, slightly sweetish.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2011
Keg, The George and Dragon, Stoke Golding. Smells a bit like a rotting beachmat. Or a cowpat. Bit of herbal hop. Not good. Much better in the flavour department, with a good hit of pilsy bitterness, bread stick and honey, lingering biscuit. Bright, fizzing gold with a low clinging head. Ends up a very decent lager.

Reasonably sweet and quite pleasant on first taste but a bit of a corny finish. Quite smooth. Not that impressed overall.
