One to try your mates on if they only drink "lager". I’m a firm believer that lager can be good and this is a prime example. Clear golden beer; well hopped with a floral taste with a sweet malty aroma.

berkshirejohn (5956) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Cask at the Catherine Wheel (JDW), Henley. Amber with a tight cream head; sweet biscuity malt aroma; soft in the mouth with a thick, soupy, grainy body, some honey for sweetness and orangely fruit; with a gentle rising bitterness, part German hop, part grapefruit. Really satisfying, almost a meal in a glass.

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Almost clear pale gold beer, little white head. Palate is light, softish and with just modest carbonation. Brief sweet floral note followed by sweet citrus, mostly orange but a whisper of lemon. Mild minerals. Finishes neutral. Tasty beer, not particularly Pils like though.
