Tasting Notes
y
This is a strong lager that I made to showcase the Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. My goal was to make a strong dry lager that had the Sauvignon Blanc flavor from the hops and be somewhat like a sparkling wine. The results were quite interesting. For this beer to be successful, it needs to finish very dry and be easy with the Nelson Sauvin hops.
