Appearance - Poured cold from the fridge straight into a glass. Very little head, which quickly disappeared altogether. The beer was cloudy which was rather a surprise. It did have a satisfying straw colour to it though.

Smell - Not a big one on the nose this. Not much of anything to smell. But then, that's not unusual for a more mass-market lager.

Taste - Clean. A little malt on the end.

Mouthfeel - This I think is the greatest strength of this lager. The mouthfeel is sharp, not too carbonated and oh, so clean. On mouthfeel alone, I could drink this on a hot day for hours.

Overall - I'm a bit disappointed by this one. I was expecting something a bit more exciting from Meantime. (691 characters)

A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2012. The label has a trendy hand-drawn panorama of London on the front.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A clear golden colour with good carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that doesn't hang around. Aroma of light grainy malt with a hint of stewed veg/leaves. No hoppy notes to be found.

Tastes of light malt with a faint stewed bitterness. Notes of grain and subtle background citrus, accompanied by a stewed leaf character. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, leaving the palate slightly dry. Mild aftertaste of stewed leaves.

Disappointing. I was hopping for a decent aromatic hop character to add floral notes to a light beer, rather than overcooked hop bitterness. The malt is too light to round out the flavour. This is a shade above a macro lager, but that isn't saying much. Spend your money on something else (like Meantime's pilsner). (892 characters)

330ml bottle purchased from Warners at the Bay and poured into a Redoak globe style glass.

Pours a light golden colour with a bit of haze about it. Nice white head of foam that measured a finger and settled at just above film.

Aroma is initially of grain while some light sweet malt comes through later on.

Flavour is clean grain with a little bit of toasted malt sweetness that carries it home.

Mouthfeel is solid, as i've come to expect from most Meantime stuff. Not a lot of bitterness in this, but some mouth coating at the end.

Overall a well brewed, clean, solid lager. Not spectacular, but decent enough. (617 characters)

Half pint in the Greenwich Union, Meantime Breweries tap house: Thin white head on a body of bright, clean golden beer, lacing all down the glass as I consumed the refreshing brew after a healthy walk.

Weak nose, like most lager/pilsner/helles beers, some grainy hints maybe, hop floral notes possibly but a great deal of anything.

Clean tasting, with some mini hop bitterness, subdued malt feel towards the end of the taste: nothing that sets it apart from cheaper mass produced UK or other lagers I’ve tasted, OK but that’s all. (536 characters)

On tap at Taproom 307 in NYC; pours clear yellow color with tons of bubbles racing up the brew and a foamy 2 finger snow white head that faded slowly and leaves great lacing with rings.

Smells of light sweet malt, floral hops, caramel, corn, and grains; a very, very weak nose that has some basic sweetness but that's about it.

Tastes of sweet malt, brown sugar, floral hops, caramel, herbs or tea, corn, and toasted grains; a nice sweet basic lager that has a hint of hop spices like pepper, cinnamon and brown sugar.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with medium carbonation, a light feel and malty sweet finish that's slightly acidic. Highly drinkable, this is a great session beer. (692 characters)

A clear golden straw colored brew, a white head with small bubbles, little lacing and small curtains.

A weak smell, bread and cereal, lemon peel, a whiff of buttered pop corns.

Tasting of sweetish white bread, lemon juice, peel and some pure bitterness.

Medium low carbonation, small intense bubbles, a fresh feeling, a medium body and a light dry finish.

Clean, tasty and refreshing. (388 characters)

Clear yellow colour, small head that vanishes too soon. Tiny lace. Herbal and citrus aroma. Light body. Clean palate, taste of citrus, herbal. A bit dissappointing, I expected more from a Meantime. (197 characters)
