Auckland Lager

Flavor Profile of Auckland Lager: This is similar to the G’Day Mate ale but is a Pilsner. The actual style is a New Zealand Pilsner. That means it maintains the fruitiness of the G’day Mate but the Pilsner malt adds some graininess and a bit of sweetness to the flavor. This is a Lager so it will be smoother flavors than an ale.

Recipe: Auckland Lager
Brewer: Ray Smith
Style: German Pils
TYPE: All Grain

I substituted Kohatu hops instead of the Riwaki in the original recipe because I don’t like grapefruit flavors/aromas.
