We’re sticking with the London connection today with another beer from London Fields. This time, though, it’s lager. But put that lynching rope away, it’s proper, unfiltered lager. See, in 2013, even CAMRA types can embrace the modern British lager.
It’s 330ml and comes in at 4.3%. It was lively in the pour and settled to be hazy orange with a large, fluffy white head. The aroma was slightly herbal-grassy with a touch of malt. The mouthfeel was quite soft with a good malt backbone, a little bittersweet initially and then a surprising astringent finish.
Tyson says: I enjoyed this. It’s not bad at all. Quite well balanced, but enough bitterness in the finish to tempt you to have another.
