Tasman Reserve Lager is a full bodied and well balanced premium lager that holds the higher alcohol content really well. The addition of 5 hop gifts delivers plentiful aromas and taste sensation of citrus and passionfruit. It finishes beautifully with a great hoppy balance. A bold and beautiful beer.
The addition of 5 hop gifts at varying intervals during the boiling process has to be timed precisely in order to produce a consistently good brew time after time.
Fermentation usually takes about 7 days and is strictly controlled with daily quality checks.
Tasman Reserve Lager is matured for a minimum of two weeks to allow the yeast and protein to settle out of suspension. It is then filtered through a diatomaceous earth filter to remove any remaining particles before carbon dioxide is added and the beer is ready for packaging.
Whilst it may not necessarily fit into a specific beer style category in a number of International Beer Awards, Tasman Reserve Lager, our second biggest selling beer, is known as a Strong Premium Lager. It is fairly complex to brew and does take a little longer to ferment due to the higher alcohol content.
Our Reserve Lager is made with only natural ingredients: malts, 5 hops, water and yeast. It contains no additives.
Tasman Reserve Lager is available in 330ml six packs, 500ml glass singles and 1.25L PET riggers, online, in supermarkets and liquor outlets; and in kegs for cafes and bars.
From Hop Rockin' Peet
"...an outstanding beer with an aroma worth lingering over and a lovingly crafted taste. Top notch. 85/100."
Brewed as an English Best Bitter style, the combination of five malts gives Sprig & Fern's British Best the ideal balance of malt sweetness. The addition of Crystal and Caramalt provides well rounded toffee and biscuit characteristics.
