Our antidote to mass produced lager! Brewed with Lager Malt, Perle and Saaz hops to give a clean crisp taste of creamy malt and strong herbal aromas with a dry, hoppy finish that’s not too bitter.

Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is softish and a little dry. Mild fine carbonation. Creamy malt, dry and with a touch of paper. Hops are okay - mild but fresh and as described on the label, a little herbal. Finishes dry. Not bad but could definitely use more hops.

Leighton (14431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Keg at the Euston Tap, London. Pours crystal clear yellow, lightly effervescent with a huge, foamy white head. Nose is all crisp dough and biscuits. Flavor is lightly sweet with some light dough, crackers, faint citrus zing, some light grassy bite. Pretty mild flavor. Medium bodied with average but cutting carbonation. Super crisp finish, some grains, doughy malts, light straw and grass. For a UK pils it isn’t bad. But it could stand to be a bit sweeter. It’s actually pretty dry. Quite refreshing, but does need a bit more malt foundation.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Slightly misted gold with a slim white collar. Good grassy, minty herbal hop aroma. Soapy bitter hop with sappy green and herbal touches; lemon and saline touches; dab of G+T with underlying honey. Good.

RichardGretton (4437) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle. Golden beer with a fizzy bubbly body and a very light head. The aroma is dry with some hops, and the flavour is bitter with some hops and a mild degree of malty and yeastiness. Overall a reasonable dry and bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DanielBrown (4147) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge WInes, Birmingham. Smells a wee bit factory floorish. Initially smooth, but slightly like a weak Golden, but then ’swoosh’ in comes a wave of noble hop flavour, which is a bit sweet, a bit herbal and a bit dried grass. Within a few swigs I was really liking this. Perhaps one of the best UK Pils I’ve had.
