About Strong Lager

About Strong Lager
Strong lagers range widely in color, averaging between 6.5-7.5% in alcohol with variations depending on the interpretation of the style. Many breweries are now producing stronger, or imperial, versions of standard styles. The increased alcohol content should not be intrusive and should enhance, not diminish, the identifiable character of the original style. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Carlsberg Elephant Lager, Baltika #9 Extra, and Jack’s Abby Baby Maker.

Amber color. Funky aromas of mango pit, barnyard, fruit cake, roasted garlic, and lemon curd in cream of wheat with a soft, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-length almond biscotti finish. A smooth-sipping strong lager with a funky edge.
