From the outset of his Seeker adventure, Jeff Argent made two things pretty clear (no pun intended): he wanted to develop some lower ABV beers that could be enjoyed while getting out and about; and he wanted to brew plenty of hazies. And, while Lil' Hazy isn't the lowest ABV offering he's put out since then, it's the core range beer that combines those two goals in one.
Described by the brewery team as a small dog with big dog energy, it's fired by a double dry-hopping with Cryo Pop and Vic Secret. They conjure lively, sherbety, Jaffa orange-meets-lemon citrusy aromas and flavours while the opacity of the haze gives no hint of the lil'-ness of the beer. Sure, the body might not be NEIPA-esque but the techniques and ingredients that create the haze ensure it's fuller than your common or garden mid. And the tropical nature of the gentle bitterness lends Lil' Hazy an almost soft drink-like easiness. Nicely done.
