01¦08, Wai-Iti & Lemon Saison, Brew By Numbers, Bermondsey, London
To my mind, this is a complex lager. Those people who like and are familiar with Chapel Down’s Curious Brew will find a lot of appeal here. It’s Curious Brew on steroids. I found it too heavily carbonated, a real mouth full of bubbles and the finish was markedly short. Bright gold in colour, on top of a rich lager base are good lemon and citrus herbal over tones with no pronounced bitterness. 6/10
