Mind Your Melon
The Gal-Lager has been popped!
A nice lager character with ever-so-slight bitterness from the Saaz hops, kissed with a fruity finish from the addition of fresh watermelon during a tertiary fermentation.
We are glad to report that it is not too sweet, and the watermelon does not overpower the lager. Since it is real melon, there isn't that fake-fruit flavor like one gets from commercial brews.
It tastes like a smooth beer, accented with summer goodness.
This is a very limited release, but we plan to work it again in 2009. If you tried it, let us know what you think!
