Clipper City Heavy Seas Classic Lager
I picked up a bottle of Clipper City Heavy Seas Classic Lager from Brass Rail in Campbelltown. The beer pours a pale gold color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of of sweet malts with hints of chocolate, caramel, and alcohol. The taste is big a malty with a good sweetness and a sour hop balance. Underneath is some hints at caramel and chocolate, which was a little surprising for a lager. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. I really enjoyed the Classic Lager in the Heavy Seas fleet, but I could see it being lumped in the somewhat too sweet category.
