„Keserű Méz” – meaning Bitter Honey, inspired by the infamous Polanski-movie, Bitter Moon – is a strong, unfiltered, unpasteurized lager from the Fót Brewery. It is bright yellow and opaque, with a thick white head. It’s bisquity, floral-honey sweetness, and its fruitiness resembling melon and mango are all work to hide the brutal bitterness of German hops – Spalter and Magnum.

„Keserű Méz” is a genuine specialty from Fót – north of Budapest – and the first great surprise of the Hungarian Craft-Beer Revolution, kickstarted by the First Hungarian Craft Beer Festival, Főzdefeszt in May 2011. It is an experimental beer, said to create a new beer-style, called HopLager. HopLager is a triple-hopped, strong lager beer – Hungary’s answer to American Pale Ale.

Rune (12765) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2012
300ml draught and later a 500ml bottle, 6.0% abv, both at and from Cheers Drinkbar. At the bar the beer was presented as an IPA. Cool label design to the bottled version. Fluffy white head, unclear golden body, fragile lacing. Fresh fruity aroma, lightly spiced. The flavour is also very fresh with fruity hops bringing hints of grapefruits and oranges and hints of smooth honey sweetness. Mild bitter citrus shells to the finish. Soft in the mouth. Very pleasing (Budapest, 31.07.2012).
