Breakfast Beer Tasting: 77 Lager

This is the Brewdog gang’s interpretation of a lager. It’s described as a “juxtaposition pilsner”. So there you go.

The basics: It’s a 330ml bottle and comes in at 4.9%. It poured a lovely golden colour with plenty of carbonation and a soft, soapy head. Aroma is quite subtle with mainly sweet malt and a hint of citrus.

Taste: Smooth mouthfeel of the malt backbone with a nice crisp hop edge balancing it out. Classic Pilsner, really and very tasty as a Sunday treat.

Finish: Short but satisfying. Balanced to the end.

Conclusion; An excellent example of the Pilsner style. This is refreshing and very moreish. One for your dad.
