COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
„Keserű Méz” – meaning Bitter Honey, inspired by the infamous Polanski-movie, Bitter Moon – is a strong, unfiltered, unpasteurized lager from the Fót Brewery. It is bright yellow and opaque, with a thick white head. It’s bisquity, floral-honey sweetness, and its fruitiness resembling melon and mango are all work to hide the brutal bitterness of German hops – Spalter and Magnum.

„Keserű Méz” is a genuine specialty from Fót – north of Budapest – and the first great surprise of the Hungarian Craft-Beer Revolution, kickstarted by the First Hungarian Craft Beer Festival, Főzdefeszt in May 2011. It is an experimental beer, said to create a new beer-style, called HopLager. HopLager is a triple-hopped, strong lager beer – Hungary’s answer to American Pale Ale.

Nekem ez nagyon keserű. Egy koncert előtt próbáltatta velem ki egy haverom, én meg a neve miatt belementem, de valójában ki nem állhatom a keserűt. A címkéje nagyon tetszett viszont. Bizti jó sör, mert mindenki nagyon itta a környezetemben, de én a lágy söröket szeretem, ha már sör ^^

Nagyon keserű! Ez a legkolosszálisabb problémája. Amúgy érdekes íze van, kicsit kaparós ugyan, de kellemes lenne, ha nem lenne ez az erőteljes utóíze. Eltekintve ettől kattintottam pár képet az üvegével a kezemben :)
