BEER NAME: Striped Horse Craft Lager

BEER STYLE: Craft Lager

BREWERY: Striped Horse

REGION: Western Cape

ABV: 5.1%

BREWER’S NOTES: Striped Horse Craft Lager pairs a layered malt complexity with perfectly balanced hops to create textured yet easy drinking refreshment – the ultimate African thirst-quencher.

TASTING NOTES:

  • APPEARANCE: Pours pale gold in colour with large white lingering head – some lacing present.
  • AROMA: Lagery malt with some zesty notes
  • FLAVOUR: A flavorful but delicate balance of rich malt and zesty hops, with a suitable bitter ending.
  • MOUTHFEEL: light bodied with decent carbonation
  • OVERALL: A very well balanced and easy drinking craft lager, refreshing until the last drop. I’m also loving the new long neck bottle, it certainly sets this beer apart from the others on the shelf.
  • PAIR WITH: Shellfish, spicy food, chicken or pork, and pasta dishes

BREW REVIEW RATING: 8 /10
