A 500ml bottle with a BB of April 2013. Acquired not too long ago from Trembling Madness in York. The label states that this is brewed with lager malt, and perle and saaz hops.
Poured into a straight pint glass. A pale golden hue with faint haze and plentiful carbonation. Produces a huge head of brilliant white foam with good staying power; this slowly subsides to a surface layer. Aroma of light, subtly grainy malt with notes of leafy noble hops and a hint of earthy yeast.
Tastes of light malt with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of faint grain, spicy noble hops and dry yeast. A restrained, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light, dry and tingly. Slightly astringent, with an aftertaste of noble hops and yeasty twang.
Superb - might this be England's finest lager? The aroma and flavours are restrained but hit all the right notes - light malt, leafy noble hop aromas and a hint of yeast. The bitterness is nice but doesn't steal the show. An excellent lager, worthy of the name. Well worth sampling if you have the chance.
