All Grain Recipe Kit Lager (European Light)

Lager (European Light) - All Grain Recipe Kit

The original inspiration for other light lager beer styles. Aroma is rich with a complex malt and spicy, floral, Saaz hop bouquet. Light gold to deep copper-gold. Flavour is complex; use of soft water allows greater intensity of malt and hop flavors without harshness, with malty sweetness giving way to a crisp, lingering hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.
