COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
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.

Overall, I was a little bit disappointed from this beer. I bought this beer at a convenient store located on a military base in Hawaii. It reminded me of a cheap macro brew beer that I could have bought in a 24 pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear yellow with a large white head and a light floral aroma. There is a thin light malt flavor with a fruity finish. Quite refreshing, but not a lot of flavor.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
355 bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours pale gold with a frothy creamy 4 finger white head. Aroma is sweetly bready with hints of citrus and light pitted fruits. Med minus body. Flavor sort of fits the aroma, but it’s a very mild set of flavors. Still much more interesting than American macros.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle at friends - 27/08/12. Clear pale gold with a thin white head and lively carbonation present. Sweet pale malt on the nose allied to grain, cereals, touch of citrus and a good dash of honey. Taste follows nose and you get a little honey in a fairly sweet finish. Medium bodied, carbonation was surprisingly low on the palate when contrasted with its visual appearance.

Nice, clean lager. Pale yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of bread with some floral elements. Taste is doughy with some yeast and a slightly watery mouthfeel.

Grzesiek79 (3113) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 6, 2012
Lager dośc ciekawy jak na swój gatunek i pozostałych konkurentów. Chmielowy bukiet i lekki słodowy smak. Gęsta piana zdobi szklanicę i jest trwała i bardzo puszysta.

Bottle. Pale yellow with a white head. A crisp clean lager that stands out from its mass produced contemporaries.

Huhzubendah (2399) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2012
A: The beer is crystal clear and pale yellow in color, with a quarter inch of white, foamy head that settles to just a thin layer after a few moments. Effervescence is mild, but steady. S: The aroma is of honey, fruits, and malt, with a floral quality about it. T: The beer is slightly sweet, with a pleasant honey flavor coming through prominently. The floral character is present throughout, with a hop bitterness showing near the finish. M: Relatively thin in body, with a solid carbonation level. Good feel. D: I could see myself drinking a couple of these, especially on a hot day. It’s a rather straight forward beer, and a good example of the style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-17-2011
