$9.50 NZD
Lager is a style that doesn't get a lot of love from us craft beer enthusiasts. But, as anyone who has visited the Lager Meccas of Bavaria and the Czech Republic know, a well made lager is a truly beautiful thing. The name comes from the German word 'lagern' meaning 'to store' and lagered beers are brewed at a cooler temperature to other styles using bottom fermenting yeast rather than the more common top fermenting varieties. Japanese lager brewers had the excellent idea of incorporating rice in their grain bill to make for a very light, refreshing and dry beer which happens to make a lovely base for hop flavours. Yama is a beautifully crisp beer with really solid bitterness and heaps of flavour and aroma from the Citra hops as well as Yuzu. This Japanese citrus gives a zesty, pithy bite to the beer in perfect compliment to the hops. It's a smooth but full flavoured effervescent lager which pairs beautifully with food and is rather more-ish. We'd have sent you a half dozen if there was room in the box.
