COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
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.

A light yellow beer with no head. The flavor is sweet and malty. An average beer.

MGC under a medium off white short lasting head. Mild slighty metallic herbal grassy perfumed hop aroma. Medium thinnish bodied. Short grainy sweet malty start. Longer bitter hoppy middle. Short fading sweeter finish switching to more bitter after taste. Pretty good for a lager.

Very light colored and light tasting. Not harsh at all, though not particularly flavorful either.No head when I poured it. Tastes fine, but only fine as in not bad. Not good either.

Anyone thats ever read any of my lager ratings will know im not a fan but still have them to try to find a good one, and this is a good attempt at one for some1 like me. Aroma starts a little distorted cant really pick out flavours but turns into pilsner hops, with minimal skunky corn. Taste is not bad with a noticeable amount of hops, which is often hard found in lagers. Would have this again.

Tmoney99 (14973) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle 550ml. Clear amber color with an average rocky white head that diminished quickly and produced fair lacing. Moderate sweet hoppy aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture. Small sweet flavor and finish that was short. Very bland brew.

Light pale yellow w/ tall froth. Aroma is bitter with slight malt. Light nectar with ample residual effers. Bitter, malt flavors with slight caramel and hay Overall: light, dry, crisp, and bitter. You could drink it all day.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2006
Perfect;y clear dark yellow pour. Minimal head, even if poured roughly. Wheaty bitter scent, light on the tongue, with a little tart bite on the top of the tongue. Generally quite pleasant, but nothing extrodinary with the overall flavor. Full mouthfuls pick up a detectable yeasty and slight bitter. Extremely lightly matled, with some grassyaftertaste. (Bottle pour 6/12/2006)

Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2006
Had this at my dads last night though have had this countless times before and not yet rated. Pours a golden yellow with a large white frothy head, this beer has a wonderful label and looks quality and yet I think it flatters to deceive and in fact is only slighly better than average in the decent lager stakes, has all the usual chracteristics and no real stand out points. If it was getting a school report it would be fine, could do better

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Pours a golden yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is apples, grass, and floral hops. Taste is a little sweet, some corn, bready, fruit and grain. Just OK. Very mild, and drinkable but also very boring.
