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.

janubio (439) - SPAIN - DEC 15, 2014
Clear yellow colour, small head that vanishes too soon. Tiny lace. Herbal and citrus aroma. Light body. Clean palate, taste of citrus, herbal. A bit dissappointing, I expected more from a Meantime.

Kauge (341) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Aprill 2014, mingi väikepood Redchurch Streetil Londonis (£ 1,99), 33 cl. Pärast päev läbi kõndimist ja päikesepaistet võiks see praegu ideaalselt sobida. Kujundus on lahe, Londoni panoraam Kurgikesega keskel, korgil kiri Londoner. Värvilt tavapärane Lager, veidi ehk ainult hele. Vaht hea, hallika varjundiga valge. Lõhn on küll nõrgake, kuid üldse mitte halb - värske, kergelt tsitruseline, märja heinane. Oleks vaid jõulisem! Lõpuks ka õrnalt märja papine, korraks isegi vilksatas mingi McDonald’si burgeri kaste vms, ühesõnaga, tajuda on nii head kui halba. Maitse... kergelt mõrkjas, kurgus isegi tunda mõnusat humalast kibedat - muidu aga päris nõrk ja vesine. Suvaline siuke. Mull kadus ka kiiresti kuhugi ära. Muidugi, asi pole võrreldav igast massilise lurriga, aga nt Camden Hellsi Lager oli sellest ühe korraliku suurusjärgu võrra kihvtim. Pärast pikka päeva januga siiski hea kulistamiseks.

Una lager un poco mas sabrosa que una estándar. El final es algo más afrutado de lo esperado. Refrescante.
