„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.

Very drinkable beer. I fell in love with it. While in Hungary, I went every night to the Szimpla bar in Budapest where they have it.

On tap at beerosag. Hazy yellow colour. Head disappers quickly. Maybe the tap was infected but the aroma is very moldy, like an aged sausage. Taste is medium bitterness with some flowery notes. It’s name means "bitter honey" but the honey is not noticeable at all maybe doesn’t even contain any.
