COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 330ml bottle and Keg.
A gentle maltiness on the nose deceives as a massive hop flavour envelopes the tongue. Lots of organic Perle and Halletauer hops give the correct levels of bitterness, making this delicately hued pilsner true to the German style, as well as enabling it to stand up much better than most lagers to stronger flavours such as mature cheeses, hams and smoked meats, or oily fish.

Aroma and taste of grassy hops, malt and a little honey. Quite a traditional pilsner.

Nilz (365) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Thin head, clear light golden colour, steady streams of bubbles but not a gassy beer, somewhat surprising then that it has more flavour than I had anticipated - floral hops.

Nice traditional colour, floral nose, honey on the tongue. Very authentic, true to the style of a "session" pilsner in Germany.

madmitch76 (14312) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2010
18th September 2008. Tasting at the brewery. This was just 4.7% abv. Pale gold. Very light malt with a grassy undertone. Crisp and dry. Just a touch of hops providing some dry fruit. Minerally.

Fin (7257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle that I picked up from Sainsbury’s, Kidlington, Oxon, recently. Pours gold, clean, crisp and moderately bitter, its about where I would expect it to me and as a glugging beer whilst I cooked it did the trick. A5 A4 F6 P3 Ov11 2.9

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Pretty unremarkable stuff. Pale gold, not quite clear, almost no head. Musty hoppy, but strongly hoppy with notes of saltiness ... which I guessis a mark of the Halletauer. Liking it more as it warms.

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2009
330ml bottle from Sainsburys. Clear gold in colour with a frothy white head. Hay and sweet malts aroma. Flavour began sweet, before some decent fruit and grassy hops and moderately bitter finish. Ok.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2009
33cl bottle. Pale, clear golden yellow with an initially large white head, though this soon disappeared. Straw and grass hop aromas, some grain. Caramel malt base, some lemon with a crisp and dry grassy hop flavour. Some nice, delicate bitterness in the finish. Not as aggresively carbonated in the mouth as it looks in the glass with a thin but not watery body.

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 8, 2009
Champagne-style 330ml bottle. A clear bright yellow lager with a fluffy lasting white head. Healthy nose of bready sweet malt with understated grassy hops and citrus elements. Initial honey malt palate is nicely balanced by the hop bitterness and soft fruity flavours. Light-medium bodied with a smooth drinkability. An excellent German-style pilsner by this London-based brewery who obviously know their stuff.
