We have collected and grown old traditional hop varieties and selected the best combination of these for their aroma, and balanced them with additional organically grown hops, in this, our first beer. Although we farm under both biodynamic and organic standards, we go much further in our quest to produce the very best hops and barley. Our micro-biology lab continuously tests the soils, adding compost and compost teas so that the biology in the soil has the right proportions of beneficial bacteria and fungi for the hops and barley to be at their best and most flavoursome. This creates the deep flavours of the beer.

Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and spicy hops as well as a light note of yeast, leading to a dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Leighton (20807) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, light yellow with a small, creamy white head. Some light cereal in the nose with hints of hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with hop bite, mostly of hay with very light metal. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Crisp and refreshing to finish with very mild character. Some light and toasty cereal, biscuits, hay. Very basic overall and somewhat weak in character, but the character that does come through is sound and the beer does refresh.

harrisoni (18226) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2010
500ml bottle. Oh dear, this is a roller coaster of a poor lager. I mean what exactly is burnt rubber doing in a lager or in fact any beer? Yes I drank the bottle, but only cos I had to. Eeeek. Lager is a subtle and difficult style, please do it well only if you can.
