330ml bottle as part of the Unleash The Yeast 4-pack:
Mild amber & clear with a patch of thin, white lacing sitting in the middle of the surface area.

Herbs and touches of spice to begin with, along with semi-sweet malts and a hint of honey. Some floral notes creep in but the herbal ones seem to dominate with faint citrus and further sweetness.

Sweet with further herbal flavours coming to the front along with some spice and honey. Some lager malts make themselves known with some fruits too and there is a bland, sort of juice like finish with hints of caramel.

Sweet with some spice on the palate and low, soft carbonation that makes it seem a little bland and unexciting really. The body is about medium and the beer itself proved easy enough to drink.

This one was a strange beer and definitely not what I had been expecting, tasting a lot more like a herbal/spiced beer than a lager and with more sweetness than expected too.

Amber color with a thin head with low retention.
Light aroma of sweet malt with honey notes and an herbal and fruity hint.
Sweet malty flavor with some herbal and tea notes. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with low carbonation.
This is the milder version among the Unleash series. But still not as boring as most lagers.
