3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Encouraged by the previous raters’ comments, I drank this after a Kernel BIPA. It held up pretty well. Chunky gold with good, streaming fizz and a fine, undiminished white foam. Lean piney aroma with a rub of orange skin, wet grass and dollop of honey. Clean and herbal with good sprucey, grassy hop; lemon and honey hints and a proper bite of bitterness to finish. Some softening biscuit and breadstick there, but the bitterness is lingering- as it should be. Not just a lager like lots of ’pilsners’, but possibly the best British pils I’ve had.

Bottle. Golden with an off-white foam. Aromas are biscuit and caramel malts with lots of lemon. Some green pine woody notes with apricot and yeast. Flavours are sweet grain with sharp, sour and bitter lemon. Some light floral soapy notes. A spritzy, clean lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
15th December 2010
Bottle. Clear gold beer, tiny white head. Smooth palate, somewhat dry. Carbonated bite in the finish. Mild creamy malt and then some quite bitter hop. Not a lot of hop fruit. Not too bad, a bit more oomph than most Pilsners.
