COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our antidote to mass produced lager! Brewed with Lager Malt, Perle and Saaz hops to give a clean crisp taste of creamy malt and strong herbal aromas with a dry, hoppy finish that’s not too bitter.

johninmelb (1124) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Nose is well-lagered with some citric notes and a good astringency. Flavour is dry and deep with plenty of sudsy lager notes. A great example of a not too great style. Well done.

olliejobbins (746) - Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2013
From 500ml bottle, pours hazy amber with little head, smooth creamy malty with a hoppy finish, herbal aroma, crisp taste, a good pilsner.

DanielBrown (3717) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge WInes, Birmingham. Smells a wee bit factory floorish. Initially smooth, but slightly like a weak Golden, but then ’swoosh’ in comes a wave of noble hop flavour, which is a bit sweet, a bit herbal and a bit dried grass. Within a few swigs I was really liking this. Perhaps one of the best UK Pils I’ve had.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle, from Jug & Bottle Bubwith. Gold, fluffy sustained white head and moderate condition. Pleasant chalky mineral maltiness and bohemian honeyed hop notes in the nose, quite dry and hop dominant in the mouth but with an underlying grain sweetness although all much more muted than in the nose, finish is mostly hoppy and bitter.

zacgillbanks (2148) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle from York Beer & Wine. A hazy golden beer with sweet malt, toffee and bitter floral notes and slight tartness on the finish.

Keg. Straw yellow, nice white head. Straw, spicy hops, biscuit in the nose. Taste is dominated by spice and hops and some slight malt flavors, but the hops are easily most evident. A bit watery.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2012
[keg at the York Tap] Clear golden pour, furious carbonation. Frantic whirlwind of bubbles rising, creating a head a good two inches above the lip of the glass. Slightly bready wheat aroma, bitter on the nose as well. Taste is all bitter - huge amounts of Saaz running rampant over the rest of the flavour - almost becoming sharp on the finish. Dry and bitter [17052012]

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Keg at the Euston Tap, London. Pours crystal clear yellow, lightly effervescent with a huge, foamy white head. Nose is all crisp dough and biscuits. Flavor is lightly sweet with some light dough, crackers, faint citrus zing, some light grassy bite. Pretty mild flavor. Medium bodied with average but cutting carbonation. Super crisp finish, some grains, doughy malts, light straw and grass. For a UK pils it isn’t bad. But it could stand to be a bit sweeter. It’s actually pretty dry. Quite refreshing, but does need a bit more malt foundation.
