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.

hawthorne00 (2510) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma of hay, flowers, light spices, a little lemon. Promising. But weak and watery palate, some paper. There’s just no presence to the malt at all. Moderate bitter finish where the suggestions of Saaz return just to mock.

johndoughty (4063) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Orange and clear with low carbonation. Pored with a small head. Pleasant but not a lot of flavour. A typical British attempt at a lager.

Aroma: bread malts. Appearance:bright yellow. Taste: light sweet. Palate: lively carbonation, bitters getting quite strong, surprisingly long finish. Overall: OK Lager, nothing too remarkable. Pint at the Meantime Brewery, London.

BalkanMac (37) - Belgrade, - JAN 5, 2014
Think yellowish lager hue, nothing exciting. Nice nose - malt, grassiness, citrus. Good, clean flavour with hoppy dryness at the end, grassy. Very nice clean lager.

Theydon_Bois (9636) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Keg at Brew Wharf, 28/12/13. Clear golden with a thin white head that dissipates to pondwork, carbonation is evident. Nose is pale malts, straw, light citrus fruit. Taste comprises faint citrus notes, straw, lightly toasted and pale malts, grain, lemon rind. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, dry crisp finale. Ok lager.

renffisch (821) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Keg at youngs, standard lager and probably the worse side of Meantime. Straw coloured nose too alcoholic and just very bog standard lager.

martin00sr (817) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2013
Fra fad. Klar gylden, lys humlet aroma. Hvidt, tykt skum. Diskret carb. Humlet med en smule syre. Forholdsvis anonym.

Bottle - clear golden colour with thin white head. Grassy, sweet malt and faint hop aroma, similar for the taste, highly carbonated.
