I sometimes think that lagers are a little under rated. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of commercial appreciation for lagers. But not that many craft brewers tackle a lager. In any case, Jack Black have, and they’ve done a pretty marvellous job in showing us what a lager could taste like.
On the nose, it slightly sweet and grainy. The flavour is crisp and dry, but not at all overpoweringly so. In fact, this lager has a mild sweetness from some well balanced malt to it. It’s much fuller bodied than a normal lager. If you haven’t tried this craft staple yet, do so.
