500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a good head. Looks great in the glass. Mild hops and slightly metallic aroma. Light sweetness offset by a good amount of bitterness for a lager. This is probably closer to what you’d expect from a very light pale ale than a lager. The finish is more bitter and lasts longer and the hops shine through more. Far, far better than any macro lager (continental or otherwise) that I know.

Lore (1653) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 23, 2015
clear golden colour, moderate sized head; aroma of grains, grassy and floral notes, vegetable, fruitiness, nuts and some biscuit; taste of biscuit, bread, fruity notes, nuts, hints of honey and hoppy bitterness in the background of the malty body; this is, what a lager should provide to deserve the "premium lager" category! surprisingly good!

SanDiego1 (34) - ITALY - OCT 21, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato, limpida, schiuma fine, non molto abbondante nè persistente. Aroma di cereale, fieno, miele millefiori, crosta di pane. corpo leggero, pulito e croccante. al palato ritroviamo miele e cereale con finale di fieno e erba appena tagliata non troppo intensi ma che bilanciano a dovere la birra. carbonazione media

The_Osprey (4179) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
330ml bottle, 4.8% BB Feb 2017. Orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is a little papery and metallic but there’s demerara sugar and pithy citrus in there too. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation, just slightly foamy. Taste is semisweet, straw and some thin syrup, nice crisp finish, dry but not really bitter. Pleasant lager. You could drink tonnes of this without noticing.

77ships (6130) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
330 ml. bottle. Purchased @Malt Attacks. BBF 12/2016. Back of the label actually calls this the “Champagne of Lagers”. Hazy apple / stereotypical golden, small solid white head. Nose is vegetable, vegetable & floral bitter, weeds, the main note is vegetable, light white pepper. Taste is lightly milky, touch butter, vegetable bitter, weeds, floral, light grass, milky cooked vegetable / cabbage quality, some wet paper,… There are definitely some hops here. Some milky creamy character. Too vegetable & vegetable bitter for me. I sort of hoped for me. Step above your average pale lager, that isn’t much of a compliment I suppose.

ThirstyBird (2311) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Pours a clear golden yellow with a pillowy top. The smell is grain, grass...smells crisp and clean. The taste is grain and grass...some bitterness in the middle lingering and combining with dryness on the end. Light+ in body with fine, active carbonation. I think it will go well with the burritos on my plat!
