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.

Courtesy of tonycaviar at the F-Fest, thanks! Lovely opaque yellow-golden body, white head. Sweet malty, somewhat husky nose. Yoghurty bitterish husky taste. Some nice funkiness I generally associate with lambics, but it shouldnt be off. Not thrilled, but Id go for it again, certainly quite different than most!

fantti (732) - 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.

minutemat (1880) - 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.

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

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.
