COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised
A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Home Bottle - 55ml - For a lager very hoppy but its kept in check and this is no one trick pony, in fact its one of the best balenced beers you can have the good fortune of falling into. A must, never leave home without one, no make that two.

Half-pint (Keg) in the Cittie of Yorke, Holborn on 12th Sep 2014. Not as sweet as it’s brothers (Double Four and Taddy Lager), this golden brew has more hop flavour and aromas within it’s make up. The extra bit of ABV also seemed to set it apart from the other two lagers I drank along side this during my little tasting session. The best of the three by a long way in my opinion.

Draft - Light crisp biscuit. Pale gold with a rich white head. Light, but pretty sweet biscuit. Nothing special.

Nice malty aroma. Clear golden colour with good head. Hoppy bitterness shines through. Almost nectarine flavours with smooth malty finish. Light body with medium carbonation.

Aroma: grains, cereal, bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, medium frothy white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malty sweets again, but indeed, notes of floral hops. Overall: actually quite a nice Lager, very nice aroma and palate for this style. Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Kensington.

Smooth and tasty lager from England. Serve chilled, not cold. One of the nicer lagers out there.

marzenloverNM (22) - Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA - APR 5, 2014
Poured a pale straw color with a tall, foamy head. The head disapated quickly and left a bit of lacing. Citrusy aroma from the mug I poured it into. Pleasant taste -- malty with a crisp, wheaty finish. Excellent palette ... creamy and smooth. I would stock up on this one if it wasn’t quite expensive ($4+ for a 550 ml bottle).

Thick 1.5" white head, low-moderate lacing. Strong hops aroma -mostly fruity, and low-moderate malt. Clear, pale golden color. Nice balance of sweetness of malt but with lager flavor, low heat and style of hops. Good body, finishes very clean. I enjoyed the little extra malt sweetness and body with the flavor and easy lightness of pale lager. Would like stronger hops aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
