COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle.
Meantime Brew Master, Alastair Hook, has spent 20 years planning the quintessential English lager. His reasoning is simple.The great European lager brewers use very soft water and neutral yeasts to ensure that only the flavours of their locally grown malt and hops come to the fore. East Anglia is home to the world’s finest malting barley and Kent is home to some of the world’s best hops. Midway between the two, London is ideally placed to bring them together in a straightforward, clean, long-matured, unpasteurised lager, where all you can taste is malt and hop.

This was a pretty light lager. Poured straw, very light watery mouthfeel. Tasted of light malt and finished with a moderate hop bitterness.

Poured out of a bottle. Hoppy aroma and more hops than a usual lager in the taste. Nice golden colour. Well carbonated. Slightly bitter taste with a hint of straw and a dry finish.

Hullaledrinker (24) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Really classy looking bottle but was hugely disappointed when tasting it, I thought it was pretty bland & although the ale is called "London lager" I expected far more from it. Tasted to me like any other lager but seemed weaker then 4.5% on the bottle.
