Generally I’m an IPA, bitter, stout kind of chap, but I do have a soft spot for a decent lagered beer.
But only in the afternoon.
For me, this kind of beer is all about lunchtime drinking.
Quick and refreshing, I can get that hit I’m after but not be bogged down by the weight or strength of some of my favourites.
So, that in mind, lunch yesterday was accompanied by the Kölsch from Küppers.
Not as sparkly as I was expecting, nevertheless this is a very decent bottle of beer.
The first treat is the creamy smooth burned sugar caramel that fills your whole head with toffee flavours.
Running across the top is a surprisingly snappy fresh lemon juice zing.
You even get a dash of raisins and sultanas before the peppery goodness of the hops that lead you to a lovely dry, clean finish.
