It's Friday again- which means it's time for another tip and sip! So, join me as I kick back and relax with a bottle in the sun...
One of the few beer labels where I could actually apply the word, "cute" to. The white label is "textured" with sliced lemons and cucumbers. I found it to be a cheerful and light hearted label that actually made me smile with appreciation and the cleverness and how "cute" it was. It's a light type of label for a light (5.2%) beer.
I'd been delving pretty deep into the heavier craft beers up until now, and was in the mood for something lighter, and summery. When I saw that this was a light lager with salted lemon and cucumber, I figured I'd give it a try. The first sip was actually interesting. I'm not entirely sure how to describe it. I was uncertain about the flavour, and decided I need to investigate further. As I take a few more exploratory sips, I realized that it was very lightly flavoured with lemon and cucumbers, but you COULD taste them. This lager displayed just a hint of the extra elements. It wasn't overpowering, and allowed me to actually just sit and sip my way through the bottle. By the end of the bottle, though, I was thinking that I wished that it had been just a bit stronger in terms of the lemon and cucumber tastes.
While I did enjoy it, and feel it would be an interesting experience for many beer tasters, Steel & Oak Brewing's Savasana isn't one I'm inclined to try again. I'm giving it a "Bad".
