NORREBRO BRYGHUS NEW YORK LAGER

Nørrebro Bryghus New York Lager. Hard to find, easy to drink, this is a Danish small brewery take on a US east coast lager.

Except it's organic and we could only find it at The Standard restaurant in Copenhagen.

Nørrebro Bryghus has made this organically since 2011 and that can only be good, right? That, and Nørrebro Bryghus guarantees that it's CO2 neutral, from the start of the barley's growth cycle to the delivery trucks.

What they've done ends up delivering something like a Brooklyn Lager, with 5.3% ABV, more flavour, a richer colour and more nuance.

It starts with a lovey thick head, but that soon dissipated (as you see here after just a mouthful), though it stayed at about the pictured level all the way down the (lager) glass. 

It's made to a New York-style pre-prohibition lager recipe, too, delivering a hoppy aroma and a slightly floral, grassy smell, too.

The carbonation is low and the mouthfeel slightly watery, but the flavour profile delivers strong caramel malts and a late, sharp bitter finish. Maybe too strong on the caramel malts for some.

It's not bad drinking, but there are better lagers around, even for the lager lovers. Still, good to try a local beer wherever you are, and if you happen to be in Copenhagen, you're not going to be remotely offended if you have a crack at this one.

 

6/10
