Cask; Special - August 2011.
Straw yellow lager (yes that means lagered or matured for 6 weeks) hopped with Saaz noble hops with a distinctive hop aroma and bitterness usually found in Bohemian pilseners.

Beautiful to look at. The aroma is bready and malty. Quite good pilsner even though it lacks some crispness.

harrisoni (14509) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. Spicy earthy hop aroma. Easy drinking in the mouth. Some lasting bitterness on the finish. I thought it was good. Good use of hops throughout, clean, no faults. Arguably the best lager made in Kent.

Erasmus_ro (1632) - Alabama, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Cask @ Lord Northbrook, London, 30/08/13. Pours yellow with a small, off-white head. Aroma is fruity, some grass and straw, feels more like golden ale rather than a pilsner. Taste is fruit, light caramel and some flower. Light and smooth. Not really pilsnery. Didn’t really quench my thirst for a well-crafted lager though definitely not bad by any means. Just not what it says on the tin, unfortunately. Well made craft lagers are few and far inbetween.
