A refreshing, easy drinking, craft brewed lager with a citrus orange marmalade flavour. Created by Master Brewer Simon Yates from an idea to blend ‘new world’ hop character beers with ‘old world’ continental lager styles. Crafted with Lager Malt and a hop blend of German Hallertau Magnum & Tradition,Slovenian Styrian and then dry hopped with British Admiral & Boadicea varieties to release more aroma and flavour. Enjoy it with savoury meat dishes like gourmet burgers and spicy Thai or Indian curries.

Deep gold, palate is grainy and faintly bitter orange, with spicy peppery hops. Reminiscent of a decent Munich Helles.

SilkTork (5123) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
500ml brown bottle from Tesco. Filtered. Clean and dry characterless malt with some pleasant juicy hops. Without the hops this would be nothing. With the hops it’s passable. Hops fans will fall over this with excitement, especially as it’s called a Craft Lager. Drinkable, and pleasantly fruity. The hops do lift this. And I’m not a hop head.

MustangMarkF (215) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
500ml Bottle. This pours a clear amber body topped with a thin to medium white head. Its aroma was overwhelmingly plastic at first but once it had settled was orangey biscuit malts. The taste was very much along the same lines with a little hoppy grassiness thrown in for good measure. A dry clean finish. This is not a bad lager at all - and certainly better than a lot.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle. Golden brown with an off white head. Aromas are nutty grain with bready yeast. Lemon with biscuit and mellow oranges. Crisp and grassy with some apricot jam. Flavours are biscuit and cereal with bitter lemon and nutty lager malts. Quite fruity with a dry finish. Nice.

Beese (1152) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle from Tesco Extra, Watford. Poured a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma was pretty light, with some lager malt and floral hop. Surprisingly hoppy flavours, though; grassy with some caramel and lemon zest. Finish was biscuity malt, straw and light lemongrass. Far nicer than I expected; a good quaffable 5% lager.

StueyD (1071) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
A golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A light citrus fruit hop aroma, as suggested, orange, then a bready malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, with orange led hop flavours, that are followed by a biscuity malt flavour. The finish reverts back tot he tangy citrus fruit hop flavour.

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle - Yellowy Gold in colour. Fruity; orange citrus, some lemon. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; grainy malts. Nice fruit/hop/malt balance. Moderately sweet fruity lager. Much better than I expected. Liked this a lot. Very drinkable. In fact, much more drinkable than most Premium lagers.
