BEER OF THE MONTH: MARCH 2017

By Mindy Bockrath

 

Why Mindy Enjoys this Beer….
“Preseason lager is a pleasant surprise for me!  Some lagers I’ve had are too bitter and have a lingering after taste. I found Preseason to be crisp with a very clean finish and nice amber color.  One of my favorite types of days is the first warm, sunny weekend in spring, when my husband and I get outside and tackle some yard work. As the sun sets and the evening becomes cool, we treat ourselves with some grilled hamburgers and enjoy a cold beer. This is what I think the Goose Island brewers envisioned when creating Preseason Lager, a flavorful, easy-to-drink lager that captures the enjoyment of that day!  I really like it for its simplicity as a craft beer with no overpowering flavors or bitterness, yet it has the heartiness and depth of taste I like in a lager.”

Taste Profile:
This amber lager combines citrus, spicy and a herbal hop note with a balanced bready malt body and a bright bitter finish. The name “Preseason” refers to the time right after the New Year when many are ready for winter to be over and for Spring to arrive. This is the perfect beer to bundle up with and cheers to the outdoor activities waiting just around the corner.
