I FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON SOME 60 NORTH!!!
I was so excited to eventually see the bottle for real after looking at designs and pictures for so long. I’m so pleased with how it looks, it’s even better than I imagined!! Obviously tasting it was pretty great too 🙂
For anyone who hasn’t read any of my other posts, 60 North is the first beer brewed by The Lerwick Brewery, which is owned by my Dad and his two brothers. We wanted to brew a high quality, tasty Pilsner style lager which I definitely think we’ve managed to do (albeit I’m a bit biased 🙂 ).
Dad only had two spares and I wanted to take one back down to London with me to keep so that left only the one for drinking. Anticipating my excitement to try it, he’d already put it in the fridge so it was nice and cool for me after my plane journey. I was so eager I didn’t even bother with a glass, just glugged it straight down (apologies for the pictures, I nearly forgot to take any in my excited state). It’s pale and fizzy but not overly so, and has a stronger taste than most commercial lagers which can be really watery. I’m the first to admit that describing tastes isn’t one of my fortes in life but I thought it was quite citrusy, floral and very crisp. Perfect for the current heatwave!!
Even if you normally refuse to drink lager, I really urge you to give this little guy a go as I think he packs more of a punch than some of the other varieties on the market.
