We designed this lager to resemble those brewed in the US leading up to Prohibition. The combination of 6-Row barley malt and flaked corn provides a light body. Chevallier Heritage Malt, made from one of the most widely used barley varieties of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, adds color and an intense malty-sweet flavor. Cluster hops balance out that sweetness with just the right amount of bitterness and floral hop character.
Munich malts provide smooth notes of toasted bread with a slight hint of honey. A decoction mash keeps the beer dry & drinkable while simultaneously boosting malt flavor. A process called spunding captures the natural CO2 from fermentation, providing proper carbonation that is smoother on the tongue.
We sourced Saaz hops and pilsner malt from Czechia for this delicious pale lager. A double decoction mash amplifies the bready malt flavor and adds a touch of sweetness. The spicy Saaz hops dominate the palate and create a crisp bitterness. Natural carbonation rounds the beer out with a smooth mouthfeel.
