Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Clown Shoes Beer Swagger Hoppy Red Lager.
From the Clown Shoes Beer website: “Clown Shoes Swagger is a liquid strut, a summertime quaff with attitude, a crisp red lager dry hopped with Simcoe and Citra. Perfect for a barbecue or a picnic at the beach, as well as to pacify your inner peacock.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark and hazy reddish amber color with an off-white head and frothy and sticky lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, floral and citrus hops with a nice blend of sweet, caramel, toasted and bready malts.
Taste: Citrus hop bitterness, sweet caramel and bready malts and a slight pine hop finish.
Overall: Nicely balanced and drinkable, Clown Shoes Beer Swagger Hoppy Red Lager is solid. This 6% ABV Clown Shoes offering is crisp and has a nice hop kick to round out the malt backbone.
