The Myth of Permanence Lager Series 014: Best Amber Lager

Amber Lager 5.5%
Icon/Fridge Created with Sketch. NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Inspired by our flagship, Henderson’s Best amber ale, this amber lager has notes of caramel and toasty malt, followed by subtle flavours of citrus and resinous piney hops. 

We created this lager fermented version of Best to demonstrate just how instrumental the strain of yeast can be in the brewing process. The English Yeast that we use for our Best amber ale is quite expressive, giving the beer an enhanced fruity character and a slightly sweeter finish, whereas the lager yeast highlights the malt notes without the supporting fruitiness, allowing the hops to shine through a little more in the finish.
