For the latest Travel with Odd Couple menu, we’re flying off on a spring trip to Mexico. Our Assistant Brewer Joe collaborated with Andy & Rachel over at OC, and created this cocktail-inspired beer, the Paloma Lager. Starting with a simple and light malt bill, this beer has lots of grapefruit zest and juice, a bit of sea salt, and some Thai basil to really pull it all together.
Pouring a clear pale gold colour, this clean and crisp beer has a light aroma with subtle notes of grapefruit. On the palate, you immediately get bright grapefruit which blends into subtle notes of basil and mint. Finishing with a bit of palate cleansing bitterness, this beer is refreshing and clean. And if you’re thinking “this sounds like a great beer for a hot summer day”, you are very, very correct!
