COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keserű Mz meaning Bitter Honey, inspired by the infamous Polanski-movie, Bitter Moon is a strong, unfiltered, unpasteurized lager from the Ft Brewery. It is bright yellow and opaque, with a thick white head. Its 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 Mz is a genuine specialty from Ft 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 Hungarys answer to American Pale Ale.

Bottle. Hazy deep golden body, medium creamy off-white head. Nose is corn flakes, cereals, hints of grass. Grainy cerealy malts, hints of grass. Medium body and carbonation. Kinda like a homebrew from the countryside, but OK.

nimbleprop (4553) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2013
50cl bottle pours a hazy, deep gold with some thin, clumpy white head. Nose is sweet and sugary, honey, malt, a little cake icing, a little banana ice cream. Flavor is sweet, light grass, light honey, some light biscuit, a little light vanilla, some chewy grain, a little light citrus. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter, slightly silky finish.

minutemat (1305) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
500ml Bottle from the brand new Liquid Drink Bar in Budapest. First sip brings out luscious creamy cheesecake flavours that hint at mango, peach and citrusy notes. Certainly an intriguing beer that balances out its floral elements in the second glass with a slightly bitter undertone. Dont know if I could drink too many of these in one sitting, but no doubt lovely with a desert.

fantti (678) - FINLAND - JUN 6, 2013
Draft at Cheers Drinkbar, Budapest. Puors hazy golden with good thick head, which stays long. Aroma has a lot of cereal character with citrusy, bubblegum and little fermented error aroma. Taste is also very cereally with grassy hops in the aftertaste. There is also citrus and hay. Palate is medium with hoppy character in the middle and aftertaste. Surprisingly good and well-hopped kellerbier, with good balance. There seemed to bee litlle error in aroma, but not in taste, which is good.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2013
500ml swing-top bottle from Csak a J Sr - Only Good Beer in Budapest. Pours a hazed golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral with a slight honey sweetness, a touch of DMS, oxidized cardboard, a bit of an herbal spice, and some bread. Flavor is better. Creamy pale malts with a slight honey sweetness, a light grass and herbal spice, some yeast, a good amount of florals, and a light bready note. Finishes clean and creamy with a light floral bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light, soft body and a creamy, medium carbonation. Overall, the aroma wasnt very good, but the flavor had a nice creaminess and floral bitterness without any of the off-flavors showing up. Not bad.

graziano85 (286) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 23, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Draught at Szimpla Kert in Budapest. Incredible to read its a lager! its seems an IPA, sure I wouldnt have said its a bottom fermentation beer! Hazy yellow colour, with a big white head, very smooth and fluffy. Very fruity aroma, citrus. Taste is bitter, nice herbal notes, and again citrus. It starts sweet, then finishes quite dry. Thats a nice beer! Maybe the best hungarian beer till now, in my opinion, it was very pleasant and drinkable.

Impavidus (63) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 31, 2013
bottle
Unfiltered, hazy, light orange colour, like weizen, big white head, fizzy. Unpasteurized lager.
Taste and palate is very herbal and full of hops, mild bitter citrus shells, it is easily drinkable, higher alcohol content, but very noticeable. Medium bodied and carbonated.
Pleasure! A good Hungarian beer.

hetyu (115) - HUNGARY - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle / on -tap - Unfiltered hazy, light golden coloured beer with a thin, white head. The aroma is fruity and hoppy (Magnum and Spalt!?). Herbal taste along with a sweet malt base. Leave a really awesome bitterness in your mouth. Currently the best bottom fermented here in Hungary.
