Better late then never. The holidays have been a distraction but here is a final look at King Brewery’s “The Three Kings” gift pack. I honestly feel that this a great pick for those getting into craft beers, perhaps those who are used to the light lagers and tend to shy away from flavour forward ales. It’s a small step into craft beers, but most importantly you are supporting your Ontario Craft Brewers. Crisp. light, refreshing, and easy to drink, the King Pilsner is everything you would expect.
As much as I love IPA’s and Stouts, a refreshing lager can be a welcome departure. The multitude of macro-lagers can sometimes overshadow fine examples of the style from craft breweries right here in Ontario, such as the award winning King Veinna Lager from King Brewery. Soft malty aromas and a crisp palate makes this an easy and refreshing beer to drink.
Now that I have found a moment between all my work, I can take a better look at King Brewery’s “The Three Kings” gift pack (LCBO# 251173 $9.95). This is a pretty nice pack, as I’ve mentioned in my previous post. Today I’m starting with the “Dark Lager”. Now this may look confusing to the beer drinker as the word “lager” conjures up images of light beers that we see on TV, but this beer is completely different.
