Spinnakers Cerveza Reposado
Barrel Aged in Mexican Tequila Barrels. A light effervescent cerveza style ale, lightly hopped with Amarillo, Cascade and Sorachi Ace hops for that Mexican citrusy note, augmented with grated citrus zest and Vancouver Island Sea Salt. For the Tequila Lover! Party.
A beer that straddles between the mainstream Pale Lager and Pilsner. Not all beers that call themselves Premium Lager are, but those that are will typically have a deep gold to light bronze colour, and distinct influence of malt and hops. They should be free of adjuncts and will have a softer carbonation than Pale Lager or Classic German Pilsner. IBUs will typically range in the 20’s, and lagering times will typically be 4-6 weeks, more in line with what pilsners have. Overall accent will be malty-to-balanced, alcohol in a slightly tighter range than either Pale Lager or Pilsner (4.5-5.5%). Most often the product of a microbrewery or brewpub, but macrobreweries can make this style if they jack up the hops a bit and make it all-malt.
