Small Beer Lager
Small Beer’s lager is the second Small Beer drink I’ve had (last year tried their pale ale which was pretty tasty) so I am gradually getting through their collection; others being an IPA and a Hazy IPA.
If you did not manage to read my previous review Small Beer Brew Co. is a UK-based brewer who focuses on brewing low-ABV beers from their London establishment. By low alcohol, I mean less than 3% ABV.
Small Beer Lager is more reminiscent of a classic Pilsner in its style. It is brewed with the finest ingredients and achieves a ABV of just 2.1% yet still packs great flavour and is low in calories. I am quite getting into these beers that are not big alcoholic beasts but still give you subtle mellowness.
The question is does Small Beer make a BIG statement or is it a shrinking violet? Well, you’ll just need to read my review below.
Is Small Beer lager ale any good?
This is another great low-alcohol beer from Small Beer. With this lager, you get some sweet barley notes with a refreshing hop finish. The balance of flavours along with perfect le els of carbonation certainly produce a lager I’ll be coming back to.
Aroma & Appearance
This lager doesn’t pack a punch like the pale ale but you still get a nose full of hoppy goodness. In the glass, Small Beer pours with a light amber look and a low head.
Again just want to point out the cool graphics they use to adorn their bottles … simple and meaningful. Also worth pointing out that Small Beer is B Corp Certified brewery (which means they are a socially and environmentally responsible business. Small Beer Lager is suitable for vegans but not gluten-free drinkers and availability-wise pretty common in the UK but harder abroad.
Buy Small Beer Lager
At the time of writing, you can find this on a few supermarket shelves including Waitrose, as well as on Small Beer’s site.
