Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lager’s flavour, purity and condition.

TedE (1563) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2015
550ml bottle into pint glass. Beautiful caramel malt nose. Golden beer, medium carbonation, solid white head. Bitter, thin mouthfeel. Abrupt metallic hop finish. Slight very late sweetness. Interesting take on a lager. The nose is all malt but the taste is hops.

Excellent lager, very idiosyncratic hoppy, lemony aroma, good carbonation, very refreshing, clearly English bitter or maybe pale ale influenced the brewers at Sam Smith’s when they came up with this. And an equally idiosyncratic label, too.

Pours golden with next to no head. Aroma of apple cider and prunes. Tastes like lager with a stewed apple kick. Mediocre at best.

Pours a pale yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is sweet cereal. The palate is medium thin body - lager body. The taste is light malt with some bitterness. So, it’s "organic" and then it’s pasteurized. How "organic" is that?

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Aroma: Semi-sweet honey cereal without much hop presence; maybe a little lemony. Appearance: Still yellow pour with a ring of white head. Flavor: Sweetness pares back a little with slightly toasted honey cereal; just a little lemon towards the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Liked this alright, but actually preferred the regular organic lager.

MichaelAwesome (6547) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2014
A very simple and average piwo with some yeast and rye upfront. Watery taste with nearly no taste. Some butter in the back rising the potential. Still a simple one.

McTapps (6985) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a clear deep golden colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of straw and hops. Taste of hops, straw, citrus fruits, hay, barn and white bread. Crisp one with a mild and boring finish. Average lager beer.

The_Osprey (9809) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Keg at the Fitzroy Tavern, served in attractive glassware. Pale yellow, sparkling, clear, big foamy white head, thick lacing. Aroma is musty lager. Body is medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is soft biscuit and straw, soft bitterness. This is a very good lager.

Iznogud (4991) - CROATIA - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at Pivkan, Zagreb. Pours clear yellow with white head. Malty, bit grassy, sweet, malty, light bitterness. Light bodied.

kerenmk (5372) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 5, 2014
From cask(?) at the Olde Chesire Cheese, Fleet Street London, 24.11.2014. Fizzy clear gold with a creamy head. Sweet malty aroma. A little oxidized and very malty and mildly bitter taste. Medium-bodied, slightly bitter and malty finish.
