Well right off the bat I was surprised that they'd labelled this beer as a lager as from the first pour it seemed to be more of an ale, and upon tasting I definitely would have labelled it an ale.
Don't take that as a criticism, it is a very, very nice beer.
Taste is quite crisp but very richly layered, there is a great depth of flavour that I would more associate with ales, hence me repeating myself I suppose. It's still easy drinking and light enough on the alcohol content that it isn't going to be a punishment the next day. The nose has a nice mix of fruits and cereals, kind of like a proper breakfast. Though if you're taking beer for breakfast and aren't on a stag do then you probably have problems beyond needing your five-a-day.
I have a friend who through sheer fondness of Bullhouse beers has probably been the sole source of funding for the company's growth, he's even done the visit to the brewery and got to make his own batch.
It's a first for me though, but I have to give my friend his dues and say that he has picked out a good brewery to be his pet project, the beer is nice and I'll definitely be working my way through the rest of the range.
On a side note I've always liked the kookie artwork on the Bullhouse cans, someone in the company has a good sense of style, they're very cool.
