Beer Wednesday – Rogue Irish Style Lager

Happy Beer Wednesday, and Erin go Bragh!

While down by the in-laws for st. Patrick’s Day this past weekend, I decided Rogue breweries a second shot, by trying their Irish Style Lager, and the Irish in me was not disappointed.

The lager had a nice hoppy bite, but not a bite like an IPA. It was much more like an aftertaste of hoppiness that complimented the malty hints and wheaty richness of the beer. The wheaty, almost bready flavor was almost hidden by the citrus hoppiness, but shone through after the nose, but before the citrus finish.

With an ABV of just 5%, I drank the whole 22 oz. and didn’t feel weighed down at all. I actively enjoyed it, and while they suggest that it be paired with chicken and fish (neither of which I’m interested in eating) it went beautifully with cabbage (naturally), roasted vegetables, and a quiche from Victoria Moran’s Main Street Vegan, made with crumbled “corned” seitan,  which makes a certain amount of sense, as Irish should call to Irish.

So, with all the hoopla about isinglass used in Guinness, I enjoyed this lager. What id you drink this past Sunday?
