Stopped by the publick house for a bite and to pick up some IRS bottles. Ordered a flight with bratwurst. Brew arrivedin a few ounce sample pour. Arrived a real fizzy yellow almost neon. Smells and tastes of a light lager. Reminds me of yiengling. Satisfying and something i could easily drink a 6er of on a summer day. Little fizzy though.

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a few specks of bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of corn are present in the nose along with notes of bready malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the corn flavors seem to be a bit stronger and there are faint hints of sweetness. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) and somewhat clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and is quite flavorful for being a light beer. I would have no problem drinking several of these in succession. It is one of the better beers that I've had in this style.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a subtle pale malt aroma, cut nicely by a flowery hop.

The taste was well balanced and light. A nice soft doughy malt dominated, but was complimented by a subtle hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel was light and crisp.

Overall a nice light lager, one of the nicest I have had. Very drinkable.

Had this on-tap at the Southampton Publick House.

I think this is the first light lager I have ever reviewed. I held out as long as I could I guess. Heh heh.

Pours a straw yellow with a very light nose. Flavor is pretty thick for a light beer I have to say with a decent earthy and grassy profile with a fairly slight metallic tone to it. Feel has a decent bubble and a pretty good liquid feel. Overall this is a very decent light beer. Certainly nowhere near the realm of all the mass produced light beers. I thought it was very good, for what it is.

On tap at the Southampton Publick House

S - mildly floral

A - Almost clear

T - Seltzer, hits of water cracker, touch of hops, watery finish.

M - Fizz of carbonation up front. Super light body.

D - Excellent drinkability, but in a potable water kind of way.

O - Way to light. Not much flavor to speak of.

On-Tap at SPH. I really have nothing to add to the previous reviews. Amazing for what it is, but still not that impressive. A nice golden colour with a fluffy white head. The aromas are of lemon, faint grassy/herbal/german hops and a bit of bready malt. The taste is bready with a nice hop zing and the mouthfeel is light. The drinkability is very good for a light lager as well. This is the worst beer i've had from SPH, but it's still pretty damn good.

Draught @ the best brewery in the world, the Publick House, Southampton. Expressive cereal grain aroma, clean, with no off smells. Clear yellow color. Clean cereal grain flavors. Very light and well made. I could drink this, whereas all macros I can’t stomach.
