Review and Tasting
Sampled on 28/06/2012
(bbd Sept-12) Clear, bright golden yellow with quickly fading white head and minimal lacing.
White baguette crust, rich tea biscuits and hay with faint Marmite yeast extract-like bitter hops.
Generously carbonated. Light bodied, faintly grassy, stale white bread crust and faint green herbal notes
More white baguette crust and light hoppy notes. Crusty bready notes and marked carbonation mark this apart from other light, some would say bland, lagers.
