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.

goleiro (221) - Lublin, POLAND - AUG 29, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 Piękny żółty kolor, lekko zmętnione, biała piana długo się utrzymująca. Aromaty chmielowo - lagerowe, w smaku czuć chmiel, dosyć przyjemne piwo i całkiem pijalne.

Zavaros aranyszínű ízében az IPA-kra és a zwickl-re (ez utóbbira a színében is) emlékeztető sör, valahol a kettő közé tenném. Nekem kedvenc.

olio (9216) - 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 Sweet malty flavor grain, caramel and toffee notes very weird, might be a bit out of date.

0.5 l bottle at Tuulensuu, Tampere. Slightly hazy deep golden color. Firm malty aroma with honey, pale caramel, earthy-herbal hops and candy shop raspberry. Malty and bitter-herbal taste with honey, pale bread, raspberry essence and candyish caramel. Firm taste but not completely in balance.

500ml bottle. Rather honey tasty lager with huge white foam and heavy sticky body. Beside this simple hop and some malt you can feel.

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.
