A PALE AS OLD AS TIME CZECH LAGER
Czech Pale Lager
Colour: Pale Straw
Suggested Glassware: Krug
Tasting Notes: In collaboration with our friends at Farmhouse Fest, we brewed this beer to mark their yearly celebration of carefully crafted beers and ciders. This historical-style lager encapsulates everything we love and respect about brewing. Intentionally made the hard way to pay respect to the beers and brewers that have paved the path before us by using traditional methods. A triple decoction, with under-modified floor-malted pilsner malt from our friends at Hogarth Malt in Alberta provides a deep and complex grain character which is balanced by the earthy and grassy notes from the heavy additions of whole leaf saaz hops. We then lagered a portion of the beer in neutral oak barrels to add rustic notes and emulate the historical lagers of times before. Kreusened and conditioned in the can for natural carbonation which provides a smooth mouthfeel and helps carry the bitterness to the back of the palate creating high drinkability. We hope you enjoy this beer as much as we enjoy Farmhouse Fest!
