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.

As lagers go, this is one of the best - great cookie-like maltiness.

Theydon_Bois (13371) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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.

bhensonb (12746) - 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.
