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.

Gold color. Weak head. Little aroma except for slight skunk. There is nothing exiting or special about this. Very little flavor. No aftertaste. Pretty dismal offering. Bottle.

"good organic beer...consistently good, a feat in itself. i like the organic ale just a touch better, but they are both quite enjoyable. this one is just a touch more bitter and lighter in color."

Patrickctenchi (3807) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle: Clear, light gold with a puffy white head. Bready, light fruit/apple aroma. Taste is mildly sweet grain malt, honey, bread. Clean....a little towards the sweet side. A solid, if slightly plain Lager.

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
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.

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.
