Bronher Lager (@Beer52HQ) By @SpectreUK
Apparently the troll-like creature in the beer barrel on the front of the bottle is "The Drunk Hop", Bronher. Once I found out it was a beer swilling hop that loves to dive into the barrel and gorge itself on the "Large Lager" rather than a troll had broken into the brewery and had ended up in my beer, I felt better about drinking it somehow. Produced in Spain, this Bronher lager contains Pilsner, Vienna, and Carapils malts, as well as Magnum, Hallertau, Mittelfrue, Citra, Cascade, and Columbus (large) hops, fermented with lager yeast.
Unsurprisingly there was a strong hoppy smell on opening this Large Lager in its 330ml bottle. At 4.7% volume this lager smelt mainly of herbal floral hops with a dash of citrus. Blonde in colour and with a rather excitable head, I could well imagine the Drunk Hop in his diving gear swimming around in the barrel. On taste this lager is an explosion of flavour. There's no way that little green fella would bother to come up for air once down in the depths. There's a whole jumble of herbal, floral and citrus hops falling over each other to reach my tastebuds first, with the sweet malts shouting out from the back of the pack. Wow, gosh! This is a flavoursome craft beer that'd wake up the dead, and make the living stand up and sing; "beer, beer, glorious beer!"
