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.

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...

Mr_Pink_152 (3272) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
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.

I’m not big on lagers, but this is one of the best I’ve had. Can’t describe it, but it has that distinct flavor that I also find in Dead Guy & Heineken--only less so. This is probably my favorite lager so far.

Lagerboy (1835) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
550 ml bottle. Clear pale straw yellow, bright white creamy head lasts. Mild grainy hay aroma. Clean fresh grassy lager malt taste, some citrus, faintly bitter. Average carbonation, crisp light organically thin bodied, low hopped. Nice. TLF (Totally Lagerboy Friendly)

curepute (141) - New York, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Very clear and bright golden. Nose of hay and light malts. Flavor follows the same as the nose and finishes with a slight hop bitterness. Good for washing down pizza.

adnielsen (10424) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a nice white head. Corn, chewy grain, cooked veggie aroma. A bit twangy, chewy celery, corn, cracker flavor. Not good.

txolo (154) - SPAIN - DEC 28, 2013
Agradable lager sin voluntad de impactar, no tiene un aroma intenso y en boca es suave y agradable, espumosa, cremosa, punto freso de lúpulo lejano, una lager para tener a mano y disfrutar

Bottle into half pint glass. Golden color, thick white head but dissipates quickly. Nose of light biscuit. In the mouth a bit thin, mostly light hops. Finishes with cereal. Average.
