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.

olio (6508) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2014
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Dull malty and cardboard-y aroma, some grain also. Sweet malty flavor grain, caramel and toffee notes very weird, might be a bit out of date.

Pff, nem is tudom. Az rögvest kiderült, hogy ez nem lesz a kedvenc italom. Színe szép, íze lényegtelen. Bár néha előjött egy finom kis harmónia, de múló pillanat volt.
