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.

Bottle from Waitrose, East Cowes shared with McTapps. Classic Lager with only a bit more hops and some lemons upfront than usual. Crispy feeling on the togue mixed up with a bit of straw which makes that one a bit less drinkable. Not bad at all.

McTapps (5851) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low ehad and medium to flat body. Aroma of mild hops and straw with some fruity hints. Taste of mild hops, straw, bread, wheat, flowers, pine and mild herbs. Easy drinkable and refreshing, yet it lacks some body and deepness.

ManVsBeer (5968) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Keg @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a small head and a carbonation. Fairly ordinary lager which is somewhat of a disappointment considering the brewers portfolio.
