What the Beer Expert Says:
Tasting Notes: An easy-drinking lager with notes of soft baguette, fresh-cut grass and hay, with a long, lingering herbal bitterness.
Food Pairing: One of the hoppier lagers in this bunch, Clausthalerâ€™s herbal grassy hops and sweet, bready core make it the perfect game-day brew. Itâ€™s perfect with buffalo wings, piled-high chicken or veggie nachos, hot dogs or mac nâ€™ cheese.
Verdict: This hoppier lager is a champ, taking home the gold medal at the World Beer Awards in 2013, 2011, 2010 & 2009 in the non-alcoholic beer category. Part of the reason is the weight â€” it feels like a genuine beer on the palette â€” and the other is that it strikes the perfect balance between malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness.
Oranjeboom is a 5% premium golden-coloured lager with fruity hop notes in the aroma and a crisp refreshing finish. A delicious, easy-drinking Dutch drop with a hay-like hue and a herbaceous, grassy and fruity fragrance. Citrus notes on the palate speak softly of orange, kiwi and lemongrass buttressed with a hint of caramel sweetness and a gentle, drifting finish.
