REVIEW – Old Wobbly
BEER NAME: Old Wobbly
BEER STYLE: Strong Lager
BREWERY: Mitchell’s Brewery
INGREDIENTS: Barley, hops & water
BREWER’S NOTES: This celebratory lager was originally brewed at 12% ABV. Giving it the potential to take the feet out from under even the sturdiest of beer drinkers. It was affectionately known as Old Wobbly, and due to its popularity still brewed today, although slightly lower in ABV in keeping with the times. This slightly bitter but generously malted lager is brewed and fully matured at a respectful 7% ABV. Don’t be fooled, the Old Wobbly still packs a punch so please, drink responsibly.
- APPEARANCE: A clear deep amber or copper colour, with small disappearing head.
- AROMA: Toasted malt, toffee and caramel on the nose
- FLAVOUR: Bold toffee, caramel and toasted malt notes pulling through from the nose with prominent alcohol backbone and high bitterness in the end
- MOUTHFEEL: Medium-bodied, subtle carbonation and slight warming finish from the high alcohol.
- OVERALL: There’s no mistaking where this legend gets its name from. It’s a alt forward, hi alcohol lager that packs that unmistakable proverbial 7% punch.
- PAIR WITH: Pork, lamb, steaks, turkey, tex-mex food and spicy food
