Why did the Mexican put the lemon in the lager? We're not exactly sure, but it does seem to be a growing trend [NB This line was originally written back in the early 2010s when this beer was brewed as the Australian Brewery's Seis Hermanos, but feels equally appropriate more than a decade later amid craft lager's revival].
Now going by the rather simpler name of Esker Beer Co Lager, it's brewed with 20 percent maize and a small initial hop addition to keep the bitterness down – an approach that ensures this lager remains very light and clean, yet still retains a lot of natural flavour. The kicker here is the addition of Mosaic and Pacific Gem hops post-fermentation which gives off, you guessed it... a lemony aroma.
If you must, the brewers suggest this beer could be served with a slice of lime, but NEVER lemon.
