Quakers Hat Hoppy Black Lager in the Craftd Alpha glass

A dark, rich, double dry hopped lager


I've never had a black lager before, let alone a hoppy black lager. So, first things first. They weren't kidding when they said it's a black lager. This thing is black. Like, ink black. Cool.

Plenty of froth after pouring which presented a dirty, golden, foamy head.

The roasty and chocolate undertones of the presumably dark malts that have been used really punch through. Mouth feel is light as you'd expect from a lager along with an expected level of carbonation. That's really about where the similarities end though.

I found it to be quite refreshing to drink, and not heavy as you'd often expect from dark beers. Bitterness is relatively low, providing a somewhat fresh, clean finish.
Not particularly exciting, but is definitely what it says it is.
