Edge Brewing Project - Cool Hops Australian Lager
There I sat. Expectations a many. A perception of this lager perfectly formulated within my head. Your run of the mill, easy come easy go, no frills beer. I saw lager, my brain went “eugh”… Until I cracked the cap, that is.
My frown turned upside down after mere microseconds. From the moment those hops (yes, the good kind - the hoppy kind) escaped from the top, I was sold. And I hadn’t even tried the beer yet.
The beer is undoubtedly full of different subtleties, but these are marriages of the highest calibre. Slight apricot notes and citrusy hops swill along with light malt that give a crisp yet lingering bitter tang.
This is such a blessing in disguise. It completely reinvents the lager you once thought you knew and were happy to dismiss.
