This is a lager. I’ll say that again: this is a lager. You might be forgiven for thinking that someone was trying to play some sort of cruel practical joke on you. Black Sheep, one of the much lauded, arch-traditionalist, real ale stalwarts has made a lager….nah, you’re having me on! We’re not! I promise! Black Sheep Brewery have started looking toward the future and have embarked upon some interesting and exciting projects centring around craft ale. 54 Degrees North is the first of hopefully many forays beyond their real ale roots. It’s brewed as the perfect emulation of the proper pilsners and helles’ you get from Germany. It’s all German hops and German malts. It’s everything a lager should be crisp, clean, smooth and dangerously drinkable. It pours pale gold and crystal clear. There’s a light sweetness, a touch of spicy hop and a little bit of lemon on the nose. The taste is sugary malts, a little bit of caramel steals its way in, there’s a light lemon twist and a it finishes dry and refreshingly bitter. This is a lager, from Black Sheep, I’ll let that sink in.
