A Note on This Beer
There’s a time and a place for Lager. That time is anytime, and that place is anywhere.
But, if you’re going to take today’s Imperial Lager on your next adventure, be warned — that 8% ABV packs a wallop! And because the crew at Utah’s Shades of Pale (A.K.A. Shades Brewing) made this brew so crushably smooth, it’s easy to forget how boozy it really is!
It’s got everything you’re looking for in a Lager, from its slightly bready body, to its touch of honey sweetness that balances against a slight bitterness on the finish. It’s the kind of beer you want to see whenever you open the fridge!
And, since this Lager has so much extra bang for your buck, it makes a great adventure brew because you don’t have to lug as many cans around. Going for a hike? A couple of these bad boys in the pack will satisfy you AND your walking buddy. Heading out on the boat? You can just bring the little cooler, because with this brew it’s like 2 for 1 Lagers wherever you go!
Plus, this is our very first beer from Shades! As anyone who’s been on Tavour for a while has heard before, if you want to find out how good a new brewery really is, you have to try their Lager. And you don’t want to snooze on this doozy of a boozy brew!
Shades is a multi-time GABF Gold Medal-Winning brewery!
