Meantime Brew Master, Alastair Hook, has spent 20 years planning the quintessential English lager. His reasoning is simple.The great European lager brewers use very soft water and neutral yeasts to ensure that only the flavours of their locally grown malt and hops come to the fore. East Anglia is home to the worlds finest malting barley and Kent is home to some of the worlds best hops. Midway between the two, London is ideally placed to bring them together in a straightforward, clean, long-matured, unpasteurised lager, where all you can taste is malt and hop.

Looks like a lager, quite light and nice short white head. Smell has some hint of iron. Hmm, Im not sure if that is good sign. Taste is light, too watery I would say. Aroma has basement, with tiny bit of sugar on top. This beer fails to be pleasing because it does made to be too mediocore.

Pours a very pale colour. Taste is slightly malty. Some sucrose syrupy taste and quite watery. Not great

Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours pale straw with almost no head. Lively fizz and clear in colour. Taste bland with malt-forward balance. Aroma predominantly hay, sawdust and slight earthy notes.

AJL1980 (121) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons. Bought in error as thought was pale ale. Ah well! Nice enough lager and easy to drink. Pours very light amber. Tastes like a cross between lager and craft beer.

Delirium (662) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours bubbly clear yellow with a moderate, fast disappearing white head. Aroma is malt and straw. Flavor is somewhat malty and sweet, with grass and straw notes, and a slightly hoppy finish. Not bad for the style.

Clear light yellow with no head. No aroma. Slightly musty/dirty lager flavor, slightly bitter aftertaste. Not very special.

uckelman (738) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Very pale yellow. Not much head. Aroma is grass, bubblegum, maybe a hint of banana. Medium body. Barely any flavor at all. A bit mineral on the finish, but thats pretty much all thats here.

radassace (178) - SCOTLAND - NOV 26, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a light hazy gold, with a quickly diminishing white head. Very floral on the nose with some sweet bread and grain aromas. Mouth feel is light and a bit watery, but has a nice hop finish leaving a light tingle on the tongue. Refreshing and crisp enough to enjoy on a hot day.

Butelka 330ml. Jasnozloty slomkowy kolor. Piana biala srednia szybko opada do zera. Slodkie kukurydziane nuty i tyle....ani w smaku ani w zapachu nie prezentuje niczego specjalnego. Kiepskie

This was a pretty light lager. Poured straw, very light watery mouthfeel. Tasted of light malt and finished with a moderate hop bitterness.
