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.

Color daurat amb molt bona presència d’escuma, però és poc persistent. Bon aroma i molt refrescant. Color dorado con una buena presencia de espuma, pero poco persistente. Buen aroma y muy refrescante.

exeter (511) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
The beer poured clear and gold with a nice, thick white head. The head receded fairly quick and left little lace work on the glass. It had a sweet malt smell and the taste, like the smell, was sweet and crisp, and had a slight spicy bite. It had a nice full mouth feel and was of medium carbonation. This was a good beer that I felt sad to see finished.

In short: a correct lager.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Keg @ Wortley Almshouses. Fizzy as hell lager yellow with an impressive head. Smells of barley and bitter hop. Disappointing taste bordering on the outright unpleasant. Sour and full of wrong turns throughout the profile. Unwelcome aftertaste. Better than Stella... just...

550ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear and bright yellow gold with lasting but thin white head. Aroma of straw and a bit of caramel. Tastes the same but with hops. Lots of carbonation. Easy to drink.
