Haagen Lager

Independent Breweries Australia

Australasia

This was a new one at my favorite package store, Bosque Liquors. Though leery of the green bottle and the price, I had a little mad money in my pocket and thought, what the hell. It wasn't skunked—I don’t know how, since it was an open sixer—but having said that, it way way too sweet. Maybe I've gotten too used to the lagers brewed out in the western US that emphasize the hops more. It wasn't totally unpleasant, but I’m still glad I only bought a six-pack. I’ll probably use the remaining bottles the same way I used my remaining bottles of Steinlager: as meat marinade or beer boil for brats.
