Review and Tasting

Sampled on 09/05/2016

Appearance

(sample can best before 14/Sep/16) Clear, yellow gold with quickly fading white head and light lacing.

Aroma

Subdued, brioche malt with dried and caramelised apple.

Taste

Clean, crisp light-medium bodied with a slight dry cider-like note and grassy mildly pine-ey hops. Pleasing, almost creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

Aftertaste

Lingering maltiness with mildly bitter spruce needle hops.

Overall

This lager’s white can packaging is reminiscent of something Ikea might sell, but it's practical and fridge friendly. Inside is a well-brewed, characterful pilsner with an attractive creamy mouthfeel.
