500ml bottle - brought at great expense by Oliver at work - thanks!
6 Lovely fruity aroma, peachy, some gentle bready grains too.
3 Rich gold, small white tight head.
7 Sweet fruity retronasals, peachy again, some milky grains, and a metric buttload of sweet fruity hops.
4 Crisp palate, refreshing carbonation. Wow, what a finish, this has both noble bitter hops, noticable paperiness too, and tons of fruity new world hops.
13 There was some indication of the strength of the beer in the first sip, but once you’ve got the taste of hops on your tongue, you’ll not notice that at all any more. Great full-flavoured strong pilsner. I’d feel tempted to session this on a hot day.

500ml bottle. Pours a bright golden amber with a flat low head with moderate carbonation and good clarity. Low malt and hop aromawith not much else coming through. The flavour is crisp and clean and like the name suggests, strong. Not a real strong finish and quite light on the palate.
