COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
330 ml bottles. Unpasteurised, but filtered and artificially carbonated. Now mainly sold as Sainsbury's Viennese Style Amber Lager (Summer only).
A 'small batch' copper coloured lager combining lightly kilned Vienna and Munich malts to create a gentle balance of caramel and fruit flavours. Its subtle sweetness and rich barley taste is underpinned by the gentle spice of its Hallertau and Spalter hops.

NosirIwont (2532) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear amber-brown with a fluffy beige/brown head. Slightly sweetish aroma with lots of hops on a malty background. As it warms it gets more sweet and fruity notes appear. Sweetish flavour. Fruity, malt. Feels a bit thin. Finish is rather thin at first, but a mild bitterness kicks in after a while. Dry, grassy and lingering hoppy notes. But pretty boring still. This beer starts out okay but ends kinda dull. 11-09-06.

Sainsbury’s version from Sainsbury’s, High Wycombe, Bucks. 4x330ml. A rich, malty and pleasent beer. Very tasty, so tasty infact I drank the entire 4 pack in one sitting. This is nice with spicy food

London Gathering Nov 05: Amber in colour (funny that), caramel and bread aroma. Balanced, malty flavour. Easy drinking.

3.4
haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2004
Bottled for Sainsbury’s. Deep amber body, frothy yet short lived head, dry biscuity aroma, crunchy malts with a little hop biting through. Rather refreshing, another decent offering from Meantime who should be applauded (along with Sainsbury’s) for trying to introduce such a variety of styles into the UK market.

Malty nose. Copper hue, white head. Highly hopped flavour similar to IPA. Decent beer.
