I know I’ve probably said that Lager is a dirty word in the craft beer world before, and I may still be. But sometimes a craft beer drinker may just want a plain beer, Burial Beer Co. Innertube Lager Beer, 3.5% ABV. Innertube is brewed with Saphire hops. American Pils, corn, and rice. Now I know what you’re thinking a Lager with a 3.5% ABV how can that be any good! Innertube pours an old lager yellow with a one and a half finger creamy white head that doesn’t fade away too quick with sweet corn notes coming off with a nice light bready metallic biscuit note. Now the taste it easy on the taste buds with nice sweet corn/rice notes which are similar to the aroma with nice very light biscuit flavors and a twinge of a faint metallic note that comes to a nice light refreshing semi-sweet finish that carries over to a sweet corn aftertaste with a light refreshing mouthfeel. Burial Beer Co. Innertube Lager Beer is a plain beer that is well-deserving of an A+, and yes for on a 3.5% it does have a great flavor that is refreshing and easy to drink. Burial Beer Co. Innertube Lager Beer is one to always keep in the refrigerator, I highly recommend it! Please stay safe and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

When it comes to craft beer the word Lager is looked on as a bad or dirty word. That can be so done to BMC (Bud Miller Coors) for brewing such bad or weak tasting beers. But I don’t think that lager is such a foul word. I have had some great lagers and this Samuel Smith Pure Brewed Organic Lager, 5.0% ABV, is what a BMC/lager beer should taste like. Samuel Smith an English brewery has some of the best beers in the world. This lager is no different. Samuel Smith Lager pours a bright golden color with a pure white foamy head that says for a nice while and makes very nice lacing. There are tons of light streaming through the glass with tons of little carbonation bubbles. This is a beautiful look lager beer. The aroma on this English lager is bready from the malted barley used. I also found a cracker-like scent among the bready aroma. The taste is not far off from the nice aroma; I found it bready upfront and a little teeny sweetness toward the end. The flavors on this lager are crisp, sharp, light, and refreshing. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing and has a clean crisp bready like finish. The after taste is a tad bit sweeter than the start but fades out rather quick. I think this is Samuel Smith Pure Brewed Organic Lager is how a BMC should taste. Forget adding SO much water to the darn lager. This Samuel Smith beer is getting A+ from me. This is an excellently brewed lager and a great example of how lager is supposed to be. I have yet to have a bad Samuel Smith beer! All of the beers that they brew are just as excellent as the last. This Organic Lager is something I would have over and over again, and it’s good that it is 5.0% ABV. I highly recommend trying this lager, so go and see how great this beer is! Cheers Please enjoy responsibly!
