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.

Nice lager beer. Really tasty and refreshing at the same time. Wat you want for a lager beer but you don’t find many times.

Poured from 330mL bottle. Clear, pale yellow with minimal white head. Subtle citrus and mild hops with a smooth fruity sweetness. Finally a lager I don’t mind!

White weak head. Deep golden colour. Aroma is malty with grainy and light herbal notes. Flavor is malty too with grainy and biscuits tones, slightly herbal, ending in a moderately hoppy with a hint of biscuits finish. Light bodied.

malty and citric aroma... the taste is well-balanced, malty, with notes of herbs and buckwheat... bright hoppy bitterness... aftertaste is bitter and rather dry...
