A flavourful deep honey coloured Pilsner lager that is slow fermented & conditioned to bring out the best in the beer.
A study in purity, simplicity and cleanliness of flavour. A beer with a sharply snappy well-focused hop bitterness, a soft bready centre, and a very clean dry finish. Refreshing and will cut through any nonsense.

Theydon_Bois (17224) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle at home (picked up from the brewery) - 05/10/12. Pours a clear light golden with a bubbly white head that quickly thins to nothing. Hops, malts, honey and a little whiff of booze on the nose. Taste follows, sweetish profile, honey, a little caramelised sugar, toffee apple, a little spice. Great mouthfeel, medium bodied, fine carbonation lending to a crisp dry finish. Decent clean drinking pils.

teorn88 (6732) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2015
33cl fancy bottle split at The Rake, London. It pours a light golden color with a minimal white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, with starch and bread. Taste is again medium sweet and only lightly crisp and grainy. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, not what I look for in a pilsener, too sweet

SlackerMads (2907) - DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Clear copper with a large good lacing off white head. Flowers and citrus in the nose. Smell nice. Hoppy notes of flowers and citrus are also up front in the flavour backed by some biscuit and light bready malts. Heading a bit towards a dunkel. Soft carbonation and some good bitterness. Drinks well, alcohol doesn’t show.

foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2012
Pale grey yellow in the glass. Strong, lovely aroma: resin, reminds me of old violin lessons. Taste - nicely balanced, resin again, even slightly engine oil BUT delicious - work that one out, also pine? Overall: delicious actually.
