Beer of the Weekend #790: ReUnion Lager

While at the ReUnion Brewery to chat with the brewer yesterday, I filled my growler with the beer of the weekend — ReUnion’s fantastic Lager — while I was there.

The color is light, clear gold. Two fingers of dense, white, shiny, bubble-spotted head settles slowly and leaves a skim and ring around the edge. The aroma is a pleasing medley of light malt, grass, and herbal hops. There is a touch of lemon zest. The flavor is what real lager tastes like. There are flavors of light malt, grass, and herbal hops. It has a pleasing, spicy bite that lingers on the taste buds. It is simple but oh so tasty.
