Within the residential area of West End, there’s a road called Whynot Street. When you read the street sign, it takes all the restraint in the world not to pose the silly question: “Why not street?” It’s a question that’s as nonsensical as it is fun to ask.
In the opinion of this writer, Whynot Lager makes a whole lot more sense. It’s a classic German style lager made with one malt and one hop, and bears all the simplicity and clarity you’d hope for. A clean stretch of citrus leads into the light lager malt taste, with the aftertaste bringing a hint of lemonade. It’s refreshing and moreish, and it takes all the restraint in the world not to ask: “Why not lager?”
