Brew Review: Laverstoke Park Farm Organic Real Lager

Today I’m going to review a brew from Laverstoke Park Farm, a brewery located in Laverstoke, England. I picked up this brew at my local brew shop and thought I’d give it a chance, which was a mistake. After tasting this beer I now know there’s two things you should never mix, organic and beer. If you could imagine what it would be like to wipe your tongue over a skunk tail look no further than this beer.

Laverstoke Park Farm Organic Real Lager:

ABV: 4.50%

Serving Type: Bottle

Appearance: Pours a translucent yellow-ish straw color with lively fizziness and a slowly dissipating fluffy off-white head

Smell: Lightly grassy and metallic

Taste: Sour-ish on the palate, but not in a very pleasant way. Has a sulfuric twangy character that comes on particularly strong in the finish

Drinkability: Easy to drink one sip and know you will never drink this beer again

Overall thoughts: It leaves behind an odd bitter aftertaste that isn’t very appealing.  The flavor is full of earthy and grassy notes, with a ton of nasty. I am not sure how a bottled skunk would taste, but this beer has to be close.

Freshness Rating: 1/10

More brew next week. Until then Stay Fresh My Friends
