Caesar Augustus (Lager/IPA Hybrid)Caesar Augustus (Lager/IPA Hybrid)
Notes: This Lager/IPA hybrid is a revolution in refreshment and flavour. All the crisp clean notes of the finest lager but with the discrete bitter finish of a well-balanced IPA. It's not confused about what it wants' to be, it's just the best of both worlds.

Refreshing beer, taste is not too strong but it is quite flavourful. I would say it tastes like a Brewdog beer but it's more subdued making it much better. Overall it's not a bad beer.

Can. Clear straw with a frothy head which produces decent lacing.
Citrus aroma. Hints of honey and straw.
Taste as per smell with a mild astringent completion.
A light refreshing feel.
Between two stools.

Look - Light gold colour. Rich foam. Nice lacing.
Smell - Citrus, light hops. After while mostly hops and sweet malt.
Taste - Bitter, hops, some citrus undertones.
Feel - Light and refreshing. Medium bodied.
Overall - Good combo. Takes lightness and bitterness of good lager and mixes with lightness and fruitiness of IPA. Very nice beer.

Perfect Hybrid! The clear, clean and crisp texture of a lager with the nice bitter-sweetness of a good well balanced IPA. Has a nice and clear golden colour with medium carbonation and clean white head. Comes in a 500ml bottle roughly at £1.75 to £2.69 at most places leaving you utterly impressed. Nice citrusy smell with grassy notes.

Clean, crisp and pours well. Love the aroma and the fresh taste left on the tongue after the first mouthful. Bottle quantity is very good making it great value for money. All in all it is surprisingly good coming from an unassuming label. Couldn't wait to order the next one. Definitely recommended.

Golden blond, some thin floaties. Beautiful creamy white foam.
In the smell fresh hop and white flowers, grassy (melissa, lemon balm), a hint of citric. Fresh And light.
The taste starts malty, then a dry finish. Good hop, light citric.
The aftertaste again starts malty and finishes hoppy, with tea scent, delicate and pleasant.

Snow White head atop a lovely, very active golden beer, translucent despite the action.

Bready and herbal; hops are noticeable, but grassy and piney.

Flavor follows: it's a very clean brew, with bready, biscuity malts, a touch of pepper, and light, balanced hop bitterness.

Smooth and drinkable.

This is billed as a lager/IPA hybrid, but really just comes across as a moderately hopped lager. It's pretty good, though, and very drinkable. I had to stop myself from using the word 'clean' five times in this review.

Crystal clear straw color with white head. Aroma is slightly grassy and hoppy. Taste is light and refreshing with some grassy hops and a bit of crakery malts. Body is light and well carbonated. Really easy drinking and refreshing.

Pours light golden, decent foamy head

Lovely sweet spicy fruit salad aroma, some cinnamon and floral aromas too

Lemony, tangy taste comes through that evolves into a mild/medium bitterness. Light bready malts too. Well carbed, slightly dry finish, fairly light in body. crisp.

Really refreshing and pleasant drink. Lots of flavour for 4.1%

Bottle, also had on draught

I joined Ba to proclaim my love for this one. I love lager and I love hoppy IPAs and this marries the two perfectly. It has the crispness and lightness of a euro lager but the nose and body of an American style IPA, without the 'dry-mouth' effect an IPA will often give you on your second round.

Proper session lager, the added IPA hoppiness gives the beer in increased and welcome depth of flavour.

Would love to try this on draft, football, Saturday, 8 pints, lovely.
