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.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Fine Lager with a nice touch of corn and grass. Easily drinkable with some with moments of vanilla, hay and bread. A slight hoppy ending and balanced body throgh and through. Fine one.

McTapps (4143) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Ryde. Pours out in a golden, clear colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grass with some light spruce notes. Taste of medium bitter hops, light barley, grass, spruce, mild herbs, flowers and oranges. Mild and smooth finish. Drinkable and refreshing, yet nothing special.

imdownthepub (10326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco’s in Banbury. Gold toward amber with white head. Largely a malty, sweetish beer, there is a slight metallic note along with a light citric note. Little depth. It’s ok.

Bottle from B&M. Pours golden with a white head. To be honest I wasn’t expecting an awful lot from this, but was pleasantly surprised to find it had a fair bit of flavour. There are wheat, citrus and marmalade notes and a little spiciness. A very good lager.

Garrold (1370) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Clear gold. Minimal, white head. I’ve had a look at other ratings for this, and they seem quite favourable. I don’t get it though. Sweet, cloying and artificial. Can’t be bothered with the intricacies.

Hazy golden colour with a huge head. Very refreshing and with a hint of hops to distinguish it from a standard lager. Very pleasant.

Hazy light amber, small white head that dissipates. Aroma is light and zesty. Standard lager honeyed sweetness, floral notes, light malt and a light bitter finish. Pretty reasonable for a ’craft’ lager that’s not really craft.

if i’m being honest its not great! bottle looks good and once poured it looks good a nice golden lager with a nice froth but not really much of a smell with it and it tastes quite reasonable on first taste but leaves a very unpleasant after taste. you get what you pay for and this was £1 a bottle which says it all i guess

stravale (2104) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Enniskillen [180614]
Amber, clear, big frothy head, some lacing. Aroma of soft lemon, very slight spicy hop, soft sweet pale malt, no Marston minerals, soft nose
Taste of soft lemon, slight orange, soft sweet light caramel, clean flavour, light hops, better than expected for a lager but a tad bland
Palate - soft carb, light to medium body, bit oily, slightly creamy, soft sweet palate, slight bitterness. Finish as main flavour, very soft citrus, clean tail
Overall - Some soft citrus in there that’s quite nice, but it’s faint and it doesn’t taste as though it’s been dry-hopped. A bit dull, but as a lager it’s quite good
