UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 scorcher of a summer day! ..does it even get warm in N. Ireland?? ... i can very easily see me drinking this in a N.Irish pub .. thanks mum for picking up this oddity .. i love the bitter content of this brew, very refined and clean yet still has enough bitterness to really make you think at every sip .. these guys would make a killer Pale ALe i would imagine...
rerate: did finally have a half pint at the John Hewitt in Belfast. it was very nice.

jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 19, 2009
Bought this 500mL bottle in Northern Ireland on a trip to Belfast and enjoyed it back home in Dublin. Pours a nice yellow straw color-light to let the light through with a tiny little white bubbly head that disappears quite quick. Smells great, much more aroma then you would expect from a lager. Some grass and hoppy notes with a tad of citrus. The hops is great in this lager and is the overwhelming factor. Slightly bitter with some light floral hints too-tastes great. Finishes slightly dry with a bit of bite to the hops and a little unbalanced, but overall is nice. I was quite impressed by this overall and quite happy-I haven’t tasted an Irish beer like this before. I’d like to see more of this around and hope that it all tastes like this!

My wonderful wife brought this direct from Dublin. After a night in the frig and a hard day at work I treated myself to the single 500ml bottle of Belfast Lager. I’m a simple drinker of beer, i.e. not a ’taster.’ That said, the first few swallows had a mildly bitter edge. However, that was simply palate prep for a very enjoyable beer. The 4th sip on was wonderful and exactly how the brewer must have meant it to be.

tommann (2622) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
500ml bottle, with a big thanks to Colin. Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a large head. Aroma is sweet, touches of lemon and honey. Taste is sweet to start with lager malts. Slightly sour finish. Solid lager and a deserved 100 for style.

Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
500 ml bottle, BB Aug 2014.
The beer starts quite bitter-intense, for a Premium Lager very flavourful. The mainpart is caramel, hints of grain. To the end there is a nice and intense and slightly floral bitterness, that fits ideal into the picture.
--> Very nice Premium Lager! --> 12/12/12/12

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle at (parent’s) home - 25/08/12 - thanks to Steve ’beers I’ve known’. Pours a clear pale golden colour with a thin white head. Lively carbonation evident from the appearance. Pale malts, straw and a little honey and orange on the nose. In the taste, sweet malts, grassy, a little wheat and grain, a pinch of citrus and a little spice culminating with a bitter crisp finish. Medium bodied with a good level of carbonation. Well poduced lager.
