Quidi Vidi Fogtown Lager
A similar brew to Quidi Vidi Premium, with more complexity to its character to make it stand out. It pours pale gold, and like all of Quidi Vidi’s beers, there are no preservatives or additives. The Crystal hops give it a pop of citrus and floral aromas, which leads to a delicate and fruity taste. The blend of malt and hop characters and exciting finish make it an ideal session beer (that is, highly drinkable).
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.
