Golden colour with a nice foamy head. Grainy malt aroma. Light-medium sweetness, not much bitterness. Quite a nice lager.

theSlipperyPen (280) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Perfectly made, clean and accomplished, like most of the output from this brewery. Light honey lemon flavours and nose offer a refreshing drink. It only suffers from the style of beer, which I dont find characterful enough to justify buying over other beers; but for lager lovers and for people new to micro brews, this is a rock solid crystalline example of a very boring style of beer.

Beerclubsa (147) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 11, 2016
440ml bottle purchased at brewery. Pours a pale gold, perfectly clear with a rocky loosely packed white head and good retention with some lacing on glass. Aroma has some sulphur as you open which gives way to bread and cracker malt and earthy hops and some light esters. Palate is medium-light body and medium-high carbonation. Flavour is earthy from the hops upfront, with hop bitterness coming through and then bready cracker malt on the finish. A malt forward lager with hops to balance.

SinH4 (4438) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - APR 30, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is straw, spicy, a bit hoppy, a touch of butter. Taste is a bit of dough, grassy, crisp. Slightly full-bodied. Refreshing. Quite good for a Premium Lager.

ClaudeB04 (398) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - APR 22, 2016
Bottle from my colleague Patrick, thanks a lot. Golden yellow with a nice white head. Refreshing lager, well balanced probably great on a hot sunny day.

Well priced, easy drinker. Nothing particularly notable to it. Wont turn my nose up to it, but you would be just as well off buying a good commercial beer.

Used 440ml Bottle. Strong fizz when opening bottle. Large bubbles and good head but seems too fizzy and over carbonated. Light golden color. Slight spice/cardboard/stale aroma. Seems light but is not.

Nothing out of the ordinary but still a stable lager that works a thirst quencher.
