The beer had a light citrus hop aroma, but only a faint flavor of citrus and malt, the hop was not present. A smooth finish but was surprised by how much leftover taste of honey was on my palate; present after the fact, about a minute after the beer washed down.
Lagers don’t get as much love from the craft beer community. I’ve questioned the reasons and I’m sure everyone has a good reason to look down on lagers, but I think those of us in the craft beer market have transitioned to other flavors and we look for that anytime we go out to grab a six pack or a pint. A lager is now bland compared to the bold complex flavors of many other style of beer available to craft fans, thus a lager becomes your little brother whom you ran away from because you didn’t want him hanging around with you and your friends. I still enjoy lagers and probably most of your friends do too, but I don’t have them often, I just get nothing from them when it comes to flavor. Do you agree with me when it comes to lagers?
A good lager but nothing more, a simple beer; three beer caps on the KBRS.
Come back this week for some Oktoberfest posts.
