Thirsty Thursday: Lager

Thirsty Thursday: Lager

Did you know lagering comes from the German word Lager, meaning storage room? To lager a beer means to slowly chill a beer down to about 7 to -4°C for a few weeks. The cold temperature assists the settling of haze and yeast.

Budweiser

Style: American Style Lager
Location: St. Louis, Missouri, USA
ABV: 4.5%
👄 – Everything you expect from lager. Crisp, clean and a slight sweetness. Very easy drinking

Pilsner Urquel

Style: Czech Pilsner
Location: Plzen, CZE
ABV: 4.4%
👄 – A style with more hop flavour than you’d get from lager. Round and clean flavours, herbal and floral on the nose but great hop bitterness on the finish.

Two Tribes x Pitt Cue Vienna Lager

Style: Vienna Lager
Location: Kings Cross, London UK
ABV: 5.2%
👄 – Named after the city in which it originated, malty, but balanced with a great hop presence. Slight bitterness on the finish.

Buxton Brewery, Dorway

Style: India Pale Lager
Location: Buxton, UK
ABV: 6.5%
👄 – India Pale Lager. Everything you love about IPA and Lager. Clean and crisp but with lovely hop aromas. Think citrus fruits.

Cloudwater Brew Co x Stillwater Artisanal, Tangible Object

Style: Fruited Sour Pilsner
Location: Manchester, UK
ABV: 5.3%
👄 – Sour mango and passion fruit. Although still a malty presence. Easy drinking.

All very different. After trying each beer we gave each characteristic, aroma or flavor, a score from 0 to 5. Here are Matt’s thoughts on the beers. 👇

Matt is a big fan of all things tropical and sour so a personal favorite for him was the fruited sour pilsner. A great balance between the sour mango and malty characteristics. Another stand out beer not only for Matt but for the whole team was Buxton’s Dorway IPL. A very well balanced beer, big hop aroma whilst still having a clean, crisp flavour.

Of course, everyone tastes beer differently but here’s what Matt thought of all the flavours and characteristics between the 5 lagers.
