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.

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.

edsspoon (419) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle - golden with a bubbly white head which quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of malts, grass and corn. Taste of grass, lemon, hay and some sweet malts. Light body, high carbonation. Not that great.

Draft. Yellow gold pour with a finger of white bubbly head that leaves a thin film shortly thereafter. Faint grass aroma. Taste is biscuit malt with a semi dry finish.

Bottle at the Malt House, Birmingham. Fuzzy, crunchy, drily malty lager. Engaging enough. Brackish.

MichaelAwesome (4100) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
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 (4100) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, 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.

Mr_Pink_152 (711) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys. Crisp golden colour with little if any head. Subtle aroma of fruit and bitter sweetness, with a fairly sweet flavour.

Sweet and hoppy aroma. Dry clear and golden colour. Very fizzy and clear. Hoppy taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wimpyjoe (3918) - 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.
