Cricketers Arms Lager

Drinking the universe one craft beer at a time!

Total Score: 4.9/10 Barley1Coriander1CutGrass1Stein1

I found the back of this intriguing; “brewed with the finest Amarillo hops”, sounds delish, let’s give it a run. Drunken ironically while watching the cricket. Australia lost btw :(.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a tulip pint.

A: Clear and golden, everything a Lager should be. The head started out really excited (like a teenage boy getting a fake ID) but died down to a typical Aussie pub thin lacing… slight disappointment crept in. 6/10.

S: Smells typically like a grainy Lager, but what’s that? Spicy and floral hops! In a Lager? Get. Out. Of. Town. Go on, now! There was a genuine surprise that maybe the label on the back of a bottle (finest Amarillo hops) was not mere hyperbole… let’s find out! 7/10.

T: Hop promise not fulfilled. Yes there is a slight grassy hop presence, but it’s otherwise boring Lager grain flavours…
