Suds: Twin Finn American Lager
Twin Finn showcases what a well-crafted lager can offer the palate. This is a malt-forward and crisp lager—refreshingly pleasing and perfect for the beach—with a subtle citrus burst that cuts through the malt sweetness and adds a hint of bitterness. This pre-prohibition lager demonstrates all the flavors and complexities that a lager has to offer, without using the adjunct ingredients and watered-down techniques used by some of the big beer companies. This is a light(er) beer that brings doesn't skimp on the taste!
