Kobold, named after a Sea Sprite that protects sailors, is Adnams’ English Lager, and true to Adnams ethos a share of the profits from this beer go to The Blue Marine Foundation.
Most importantly for us howveer, is that this is a super little Lager that pours a sunshine yellow and is crisp, bright and clean.
The aroma, all honey and salted popcorn, leads you down into a soft and creamy caramel and wafer biscuit malt body, while the hopping brings sharp green spicy leaves and a twist of citrus zest.
In the finish the beer is long and dry and very refreshing.
Kobold would be perfect drunk with a coastal view, but it’s doing alright in my little front room in the middle of England.
