Oblivious to accountants interfering and conventional corporate wisdom we do not cut corners like other Lager producers and use malt substitutes like corn and rice to keep our costs down. Our Lager has 100% malt base providing an fresh, sharp initial sweetness and a body and flavour, which endures where others prematurely disappear into a watery bland grave. A combination of the finest German and New Zealand hops add subtle tropical fruit notes and add complexity and depth to this most statuesque of Lagers.

Muggus69 (2362) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2010
330ml bottle, bit out of date 24/07/09, dang. Pours a clean golden body with short-lived white head. Pleasant aroma of honeyed malts, dried apricot, and faint ripe melon and citrus hops. Quite full bodied, carbonation is subdued for a lager, clean texture. Grainy malt on the body, honey and light biscuity sweetness. Bit of lemony and stonefruit fruit hop flavour, slight grassiness on a moderately bitter finish with a lingering husky dryness. Pretty good lager, despite the age. Nicely flavoured and goes down smoothly.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2009
330 ml [email protected], Oslo. Thin white head. Brilliant copper brown color. Aroma is dry and quite sharp metallic, faint malty, with a modest fruity and hayish hop presence. Light malt body, kind of sharp, or maybe tight. Earthy hop bitterness. Light-bodied and almost watery in the mouth. Bitterish finish with a certain crispness. Not very exciting.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2009
Medium offwhite shiny lasting head. Amber body with carbonation. Dusty straw and fruit hop aroma with floral notes. Light, harmonic, and yet full of flavour. Dry-sweetish golden floral taste with faint acidic tinge. Mid-bodied. Dusty mouthfeel. Dry fruity floral aftertaste with grain notes. Unusual, nice, and imperfect. Suspect this bottle is not in perfect form. Will rerate. (0.33l bottle, Olympen, Oslo.)
