Outlaw Lager

No, not like that! This is a simple clean lager I produced for the Father In Law to account for his slightly uncultured beer palette. Its nothing special. If you want to placate a lager drinker who thinks Becks is an acceptable pint, and Stella is something you drink rather than leave on the shelves in the supermarket, try this. I remember it being one of the most unremarkable fermentations I’ve ever done, almost boring if I’m honest…
