This crisp, full flavored lager beer starts with pale malt and a blend of dark caramel malts for a full bodied malt character and a deep amber color. Styrian Golding hops balance the sweet malts and add a fabulous aroma. The slow, lager brewing process gives this beer a super clean, crisp flavor.
This beer was fashioned around the Copperhead but it is darker, a bit more full bodied and uses a different hop. Styrian Goldings are a new hop for us, and you may expect to see them again. While cascades are generally described as having a citrusy, grapefruit tang to them, I would be inclined to say that the Styrian Goldings have a citrusy tang that leans more towards an almost lemony character. They have no relation whatsoever to the East Kent Golding hops.
Named after the rich Wakarusa River Valley which passes to the south of Lawrence. The fertile soils of the Wakarusa?s flood plain have yielded incredible bounties of fresh produce over the years. We hope that this beer represents that fresh flavor and quality.
