Though criminally inconspicuous, dark lager’s potent dance enriches and slakes, humbly achieving more at moderate abvs than more famed styles. Whitelakes’ take is no exception, with malt-led dark chocolate, liquorice bullets, toast and subtle nuttiness, while arriving through the looking glass as a crisp Lager. Elegant noir drinking, by the pint. “I just wanted to keep drinking it. Really love this” – the blind judging notes say it all.
