I'm not exactly sure where the cut-off between mid-strength and light beer is, or if it matters, but certainly Brick Lane have taken the approach that, when other brewers go low for their mid-strength offerings, they go lower. The Fine Line Lager – one of two lagers in their core range – tips the scales at a mere 3 percent ABV. But don't go thinking this is some watered down offering; it's actually the more classically minded of the two.
Aromas are of the noble hop variety – floral and spicy – with a light, grainy sweetness sitting in wait behind. It pours bright as anything: straw coloured and soft on the palate and, while you know it's on the lighter side, there's still enough character to keep the taste buds entertained.
