Steam Lager.
An unfiltered, unpasteurised lager with a difference. We use San Francisco Lager yeast fermented at ale temperatures to release delicate fruity esters, whilst Vienna malt is used to give the beer a hint of sweetness.

330ml bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Golden coloured body with shade of grey. Hazy, bubbly white head. Aroma of pale malts and lemony hops. Mild taste of mid-sweet citrus and pale malts. Soft carbonated. Smooth on the swallow. Satisfying thirst quencher (Shared on the train to Derby 20.02.2015).

Tap(@Brewery Tap):Golden, a bit unclear, firm and lacy white head; mild herbal-hoppy nose with a certain fruitiness and a bready touvh; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, relatively light bodied; lingering sweet-bitter - and a bit worty - finish, followed by hoppy traces in the very end. Well crafted, but not too exciting…
