Chapel Down's Curious Brew

4.7% ABV

We had the brut from Chapel Down for the toasts at our wedding, so when we saw they did a lager it was a given we wanted to see what it was like. This is where Wetherspoons expandion into 'craft' beers was even more useful than just being able to buy Brooklyn lager at a reasonable price on a hot day.

The lager itself is refreshing with a good dose of hops, enough to make it tangy but not resinous. The mouth feel is light, the champagne yeast providing fine bubbles and a smooth texture to the lager. One that would stand up to bbq food or would go well with fish. There is a mussel recipe involving beer and I'm thinking this may also work well.
