Monteith’s Golden Lager is considered a ‘malty lager’ in the heritage of beers traditionally brewed in parts of Germany.
The tradition of Munich Oktoberfest and ‘export’ lagers balances a smooth mellow hop character with a rounded malty nutty richness and refreshing fruity aroma.
By today’s standards, Monteith’s Golden Lager is a rich golden colour, slightly darker than more modern ‘mainstream’ lagers. It has a smooth malty characteristic tending to nuttiness, from the use of Munich-style amber malts.
Monteith’s brewers have developed a crisp natural freshness from the lager yeast during maturation.
