New Zealand's Epic Lager (5/10)

New Zealand's Epic Brewing Company's Epic Lager pours as an amber color with a thin head, and almost no lacing in the glass.

The flavor is a fairly standard lager.  Nothing really jumped out at me.  The level of hoppiness would certainly exceed a Budweiser but probably below a Samuel Adams Boston Lager.  That is to say that you'll notice the hops but they don't overwhelm the flavot.  It's a decent beer, but not a favorite.

Beer Advocate gives it an 83, describing it as "good" (certainly not "epic").

I tried this at The Winking Lizard Tavern on Bethel Road, but haven't seen it available at local retailers.

ABV: 5%
IBU: 25
My rating: 5/10
