The Imperial German Lager is here!
Updated: Apr 2
Our latest Limited Release is here, this one is extra special and takes the guys back to the very early days of planning the brewery and a memorable trip to Germany.
Lance Masterton - Co Founder & Head Brewer tells the story below.
"I went to Germany to do the factory acceptance test on our new brewhouse and stumbled across this Doppelbock in a little town called Treuchtlingen in Southern Germany. I was able to bring some bottles home for [brother and co-owner] Craig to drink with me and this limited release is our take on that amazing beer.
The Imperial German Lager is a Doppelbock style beer sitting at 7.8% and drinking beautifully smooth in true Heads of Noosa fashion.
Mick Wust from Crafty Pint gives a stellar write up as always!
"In the glass it’s cola brown with a rusty red edging where it catches the light. Complex aromas show off the layers of premium malts: the rich stickiness of caramel tart is balanced by dark brown toast, with the noble hops bringing dainty notes of black tea. From the first sip these flavours deepen further with chocolate notes. The clean fermentation and dryness on the palate make for a fairly brief finish; the flavours don’t disappear instantly but don’t overstay their welcome either, making this beer surprisingly easy to sink for a 7.8 percenter"
