Known for their range of eccentric lagers, @brasseriemaltstrom have added their lowest alcohol beer yet, a Nano Lager. It’s hopped with Strisselspalt and Tettnanger but comes in at just 7° Plato (or 2.7% ABV in the common tongue!) 😮
The beauty of this beer being crafted by some of Quebec’s best lager brewers means that it’s almost entirely impossible to tell it’s a Nano or even a light lager. It delivers all the floral, grassy and slightly spicey hop aromas you’d expect on top of rich notes of crusty bread and fresh hay worthy of a more full bodied brew.
It’s also impressively smooth and round on the sip thanks to a meringue-like mousse that appears when it pours and lingers through to the last sip. However, it’s also crisp and refreshing throughout, staying light but bringing ample body and rustic, artisanal character that makes it easily a superior choice for a cheeky midweek pint without any of the guilt. 👌🏻 😋 🍺
I’m also now publishing my posts with @letemps1biere, be sure to check out their great podcast and website for all things craft beer and history! My two passions! 🤓 📚 🍻
