Lagers

Lagers are the (much) younger sibling of ales, but now dominate the world beer scene thanks to their production in almost every county. Most people think of lagers as that clear, fizzy, yellow beer, when in fact they can be any colour from pale straw to black. The entries in this year’s lager category follow a similar breadth of colour. This year’s Best in Class is Stanley Park’s Daytrip, a gold coloured beer with a citrusy hoppy finish. On the other side off the colour scale is a schwarzbier (black beer) from Red Deer’s Something Brewing, the perennial favourite Dark Side. A subtle coffee flavour greets the palate, but it still finishes crisp and clean. David Nuttall
