The Hard Yards Dark Lager is built upon a pilsner backbone, but it is the malts that do all the talking in this beer. Using a number of malts that you would typically associate with a porter, it is chocolate, coffee and biscuit characters that dominate here. The strong malt profile is backed up with a hint of bitterness from new world hops. It pours almost black thanks to the roasted barley with slight reddish hues. Despite the malt profile this is not a lingering heavy sweet beer but rather a light-bodied dark lager that finishes quite dry and is full of flavour.
