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.

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

Bottle. Bronze with a mediun head,Plenty of body for a four percenter. Sweet with a bitter finnish. Badges itself as a lager but I dont think that it is. Just above average.

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

leaparsons (8180) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Keg, The Font, Leicester. Golden with lots of carbonation. Aromas are toast and grain with peanuts and light lemon. Flavours are crisp and clean with cereal and grassy, citrus notes. Very burpy carbonation and hops. A decent lager.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Keg @ The Exchange, Leicester. Quite nice for a bog standard lager. Rather have this than, say, a becks vier. Came in a nice glass. Sweet to start then quite bready to finish. Middling to fair really, but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, 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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2012
On keg at Meltons too. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of bready yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation. A clean tasting lager.
