On a hot northern Queensland afternoon, drinking a good lager can feel like drinking from the fountain of youth.
The aptly named Refresh Lager draws inspiration from the rice lagers of the American pre-Prohibition era. Rice was first used in beer as a cheaper alternative to malted barley, but over time people came to realise it can lend a dry edge and work wonders in giving beer a crisp finish.
With a delicate flavour that straddles fruity and bready, as well as a touch of sweet candied banana, Refresh finishes clean and is the type of lager you’re happy to reach for on any given “beautiful one day, perfect the next” Queensland day.
