Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lager’s flavour, purity and condition.

*Old rating. Nice, slightly grainy and not too bitter Lager. Hints of sweetness, easy to drink, round and fresh!

Pours a clear yellow with a full head. Subtle balance of malt and hops but essentially does what it says on the box delivering a clean, easy drinking lager.

Tomada de grifo en un pub de Londres. La verdad es que la califico según el recuerdo que me dejó, pero la recuerdo como una extraordinaria y compleja lager, con muchos matices, y que entraba realmente bien dejando un agradable recuerdo en boca, la verdad si me la volviese a encontrar repetiría.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a golden color with a decent white head and lacing. The aroma is corn malt, fruit, and hay. The taste is corn, bread, slight hop bitterness, hay, and grain. This had a very crisp and clean quality to it with nice carbonation. For the style, it’s excellent.

On tap at Top1 Forever restaurant, Royal Victoria Dock, London. Pale golden color, low white head. Aroma and flavour are more malty than hoppy, this is more of a Bavarian Helles than a Pilsener. Moderate diacetyl comes through as the beer warms up a little.

Garrold (4240) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
Bottle. Betty’s, York. Clear yellow. Ring of white. Grassy hop. Sweet malt. Taste is sweet, and light, grassy hop bitter. Crisp palate. A bit thin. Finishes more of the same. Vomit burps. Not great.

Attractive golden lager. Clean crisp flavour with hoppy notes. Lengthy bitter finish which slightly lessened my enjoyment of the beer.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2015
500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (5+:4:5:3:11=2.8+)
Soft vanilla, some orange, and light grains. Beautiful tight persistent head over a bold golden body. Simple light grainy taste, less interesting than aroma. Fullish palate. Want some hops in the finish, there’s almost none. Very nice lager, but still lacking a few details.

20 oz bottle poured into a english pint glass. The aroma of fresh grass and hemp is noticeable along with a light, acute, clean lemony citrus followed by bread dough and grains. It pours clear with a pale straw hue and a light effervescent nature. It’s head is white with a filmy surface and a very light retention and lace.The taste is a medium light sweet and light bitter.The texture is a thin oily with a lght, soft fizz carbonation and a light body. The flavor is a bit of lemon, a light floral hemp, and bread grains that has a finish that’s crisp and clean with a light spice and a honey slickness, as well as lighter notes of cornbread and citrus. It’s refreshing aftertaste is mild, spice and bread.
