Brewed and bottled by: Pact Beer Co, Canberra, Australia
How they bill it: “We’ve taken the traditional Pale Lager - a clean, crisp refreshing beer and infused it with a farm full of Loral hops. Bringing equal parts old world noble and new world fruity hop awesomeness, the L yeah is an everyday beer with character, exposing melon, citrus, and fresh cacao.”
My take: This is a crisp-honeyed paradox, full of hidden treasures. A zingy burst on the tongue, and then it's gone leaving the warmth of a summer evening. It’s like a jovial highwayman, holding up your carriage. You hand over your jewels and money, but there’s repartee, and its full of bonhomie so you all end up back at their place, on the verandah for a late supper whilst you play Cards Against Humanity. Drink with fish and chips and the sounds of John Butler Trio.
