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.

kwik-lime (1177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Slightly grainy malt, some biscuit, moderate hop to balance and a tiny hint of citrus. Decent lager but doesn’t set the world alight.

Pyobon (862) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2012
(Bottle) Clear pale amber with short lived loose white head. Grassy aroma with slight citrus hint. Light and fizzy. Flavour starts with light malt and citrus tang shifts to slight bitterness with a flinty edge.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Looks like a lager, quite light and nice short white head. Smell has some hint of iron. Hmm, I’m not sure if that is good sign. Taste is light, too watery I would say. Aroma has basement, with tiny bit of sugar on top. This beer fails to be pleasing because it does made to be too mediocore.

mikkopen (788) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2012
330 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow colour, thin white head. Aroma of grainy malt and grassy hops. The flavour is like the aroma, with some added fruity notes. Easy to drink, but boring.

Martin243 (697) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
330 ml bottle fridge cool served in a chalice. Yellow body, thin white head. I struggled to discern a faint straw aroma.Also struggled to find anything major going on flavour-wise. A little malt, soap and marzipan. Not terrible, just quite basic lager.
