Not very true to style. Smooth and light base, but it is hopped a bit much, making it more of a pilsener. But it is far better than the standard lagers out there.

Draft at the Fox & Anchor in London. Deep golden color with thinnish white head. Lightly sourish cereal nose, hops almost undetectable in aroma. Crisp, nicely bitter, and very lively... possibly overcarbonated but not unpleasantly so. More nutty cereals in backdrop. Nice dry, bitter finish. Refreshing and highly drinkable.
