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.

Elfogadható, de többet vártam tőle. Csak a minap sikerült megkóstolnom. Ha kapok valakitől a jövőben szívesen megiszom, de lehet magamtól nem jutna eszembe, hogy vegyek. De ezt csak az idő döntheti el.

A barátom unszolására próbáltam ki és bár nem kedvelem az efféle erős ízeket és alkoholfokot, ez nagyon ízlett! Alkalmanként szívesen iszom azóta is!

Mřrkegul řl med et lille hvidt skum, der forsvinder relativt hurtigt. Interessant sřdlig duft af gćr, brřd og appelsin. Smagen er dog for sprittet og balancen underlig - enten for bitter eller sur. Eftersmagen en smule for bitter.

Rating #929, fra et křleskab i en lille café i Budapest

Flot og tĺget gul řl med tćt holdbart skum og kniplingsmřnster. Appelsin og masser af aromahumle generelt i duften, men ogsĺ lidt karamel og jordbćr. Smag af jordbćr, hindbćr, blommer, appelsin, citrus og en snert at lavendel, med en god bitter afslutning. Blřd og behagelig i munden.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Naama. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is a bit oxidized with grains, honey, floral hints, a bit of fruitiness and some stale hops. Sweetish flavor with honey, malt, a bit of alcohol, fruity notes and a bitter and herbal finish. Medium-bodied, a bit alcoholic. A bit too heavy and alcoholic.

Very nice hoppy sweet aroma. Nice hoppy citrusy-honey taste. Well balanced and extremally drinkable.

Inleder provning. Knäckebröd och svag nyans av burkmajs i doft. Något spretig beska som är lite i överkant. Lite jobbig men helt ok. Svagt spritig.

Tap, different places. Very unsteady quality. Medium head, Light honey and malty aroma, followed by some mid-hard hoppy bitterness which stays as an aftertaste.
