rodsquad (240) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours clear straw gold with foamy white head. Aromas major in a sweet malt front with a very gentle spice. Taste is light and fresh with a nice fruitiness and gentle pepper finish over a sweet malt base. It has a light body with moderate carbonation. This is a fantastic easy drinking, clean, fresh lager that gives a gentle nod to Belgium.

johndoughty (5438) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Sweet, medium body. The seetnes wasn’t overpowering but after a while it got quite boring. My first from this brewery for some time and not one that will be easy to remember.

3.4
Heidbummer (642) - SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Pours gold, clear, tight white head, modest carbonation. Soft aroma of hay. Quite sweet, almost Kolsch like, but clean and very drinkable.

330 ml bottle bought at Food Wise in Shek Wui Hui, Sheung Shui.

Clear light blonde colour; One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Good sticky lacing with active carbonation; Slightly pungent and sweet aroma of Lager malt, with strong apricots, strong honey, floral, sugar, bread, light spices, lemon and strong grass; Medium sweet taste of Lager malt, with honey, strong floral, molasses, dry bread, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass; Light body. Thin but slick palate; Mouth Feel is fairly good Lager maltyness in a watery but slick background. Strong honey and floral up front but ultimately dominated by strong glassy bitter hops, which balanced the sweetness nicely. Strong lemon to round. Slim but nice!... Hoppiness is strong apricots, floral, light spices, lemon and strong grass in nose. Strong floral, strong lemon and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent and bitter sweet finish; Fairly dry after taste. Sweet malty and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one is a pretty well-made Lager. Light body aside, it has good maltyness, nice yellow fruit and honey aroma, clean sweetness fully balanced by strong bitter grassy hoppiness. Well-suited as good light refreshment. Nice one!
