When made just right, natural lager has just the right subtle sensation of bitterness topped with a malty flavour and caramel undertones to give a clean and refreshing taste. Some lagers also contain a delicate floral-herbal aroma. In contrast with ale, lager also tends to have a light and subtle profile with a lighter estery flavour. The drink goes well with edible delights like sushi, cheese, fish, herbed chicken, and light pasta.
The best lagers can be acquired in more than one region. England is perhaps the top region for organic lager produced outside its native Germany. Organic English lager pays homage to the Bavarian Purity Law (also known as the German Beer Purity Law) by adhering to the strict regulations that lay forth the ingredients that can and cannot be used. The law has been in place since 1516 and has, for five centuries, been the gold standard of what defines lager at its finest. Of course, if you want lager straight from the region that started it all, then German lager is the way to go. Lager’s origin distinguishes it from other drinks. This is one beer that is meant for drinking and toasting to good times. Opt for the organic variety to really taste lager as it was meant to be experienced.
