By Jingo, By Crickey, I think I’ve found it – finally a lager to love!
I mean sure, I’ve raved about some pilsners and rauchbiers and plenty of other lager styles before, but a lager lager? I’m pretty sure this is the first. And just in the nick of time, what’s more, with no more than two weeks of the blog left.
I knew it was special as soon as I sniffed it – instead of the usual hay and grain and metal muck, I got sharp orange zest, fresh-cut grass and honey. In the mouth it was instantly delicious – creamy and full for a lager, yet clean and crisp at the same time. There was plenty of juicy citrus flavour from the hops, and a lovely honey sweetness to support it. I could drink this all summer long.
On another (loosely relevant) note, I went to a 90s themed party on Saturday night and successfully lowered the tone by singing Chumbawamba on karaoke. I have since had “She drinks a whiskey drink, she drinks a lager drink” in my head, which is still very annoying but now is at least true. She does drink those things.
PS – Just remembered I liked the Epic Lager a lot too. But that was way more hoppy right, almost not quite to style? For the sake of everything I’ve just written I’m choosing to discount it.
