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 tesco, Walsall. Golden beer with small head. Aroma of light grain and pale malts. Taste is pale malts, some lemon, cereal grain and a sprinkle of spice. Not bad.

Towey1989 (1662) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, subtle lemon and slight vegetable. Taste of grassy hops, cardboard, some lemon, straw and grain. Light bodied and a fizzy carbonation. A soft, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Worse than most lagers, grassy, cardboard flavours and highly carbonated. Disappointing.

BeerViking (3991) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle, biscuity nose, light grassy hops, dry and crisp, lightly spicy hops, sweetish malt undertones, above average lager.

Gurthnar (4787) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma buttery, lightly oxidized, otherwise quite okay, some grassy hops showing. Clear golden colour, quickly disappearing head. Taste is... well nothing special. Some green apples, some diacetyl, not at all letting the ingredient shine. Not clean. The boast "all you can taste is malt and hops" is simply wrong. Drinkable but nothing more.

jamaty (1777) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Pajiza, con cierta turbidez y escasa espuma. Aroma interesante, no muy marcado, pero de predominio lupulado, algo cítrico. En boca bastante equilibrio con base cereal y bastante lúpulo, cítrico y especiado. Bien de gas y de cuerpo. Rica y refrescante. Buena lager.

Pinball (11897) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2015
Clear yellow white head. Mild and dry aroma tight euro hoppy. Flavor is sweet malty and slightly flowery aroma.

lantis80 (5) - cheonan, SOUTH KOREA - MAY 29, 2015 does not count
유통기한이 2주 남은 병맥주. 첫 모금에 사무엘아담스 느낌이었지만, 향은 금방 사라짐. 탄산은 많이 느껴지지 않음. 가볍게 마시기에 좋음. 가격대비 딱히 메리트가 느껴지지 않음.

katrinaez (1186) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Tastes like miller lite. Had an after taste. Too light too weak even though the abv wasn’t that low for a lager. It said pilsner/lager at the pub. It was straw colored and very dry with a metallic finish and some odd minerals. Not a fan. Tap in London
