This Bavarian style lager has an alluring pale golden color that highlights the clean, crisp, hop-spicy flavor that is lightly bitter with malty overtones. Easy drinking, approachable and malt-oriented. An entry-level craft beer.
A Firkin is a cask-conditioned ale. This is the traditional way of serving beer and for a long time, was the only way to serve beer.
The difference between ordinary ale and cask-conditioned is that the latter is naturally carbonated. It’s a lot less fizzy than what today’s beer drinkers are used to, and it’s served warmer too (cellar temperatures are around 55 degrees), resulting in a smooth, silky texture and complex, mellow flavor.
