A 500ml bottle with a BB of Jan 2013. Picked up a little while back from Trembling Madness in York. The label states that this was brewed solely with the Polish hop variety Lubelski (descended from Czech Saaz).

Poured into a tulip pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A hazy golden hue with light carbonation. Yields a decent head of frothy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Some bubbly lacing. Aroma of light malt and dry, earthy yeast accompanied by leafy noble hops. Mild notes of grass, pepper, apple, mint and spice/herbs.

Tastes of light, grainy malt with a leafy hop character and a dry finish. Notes of earthy yeast, grass, floral herbs, pepper/spice and stewed hops. Quite dry, with a restrained bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and mildly tingly, with good body. Perhaps a tad undercarbonated. Somewhat astringent, with an aftertaste of grassy noble hops and yeast.

Not bad, not bad at all. This is quite a subtle hop variety with a grassy, herbal character and hints of spiciness. It is bred from a noble hop variety and is presumably mostly used in lagers. The result: a balanced and drinkable ale. A bit too yeasty and a touch more carbonation wouldn't hurt, but it goes down nicely. Well worth sampling.
