What the bloody hell is a Tahiti Lager and what is it doing in a Frenchies can? Look, I can’t answer the majority of that question but I can give it a bloody good go.
Tahiti, being the largest island of French Polynesia, was colonised by the French in the 19th century and therefore retains a great deal of French influence in the two thousand and twentieth year of our Lord. Thus how a Sydney-based French brewery and brasserie might draw some Tahitian influence into brewing a lovely little tropical lager.
Frenchies Tahiti Lager is a pale and hazy lager with a citrus forward hop profile and surprising bitterness. The stripped back pilsner malt base really allows the hops to take centre stage here. The Citra and Comet provide plenty of grapefruit with a slight grassiness that works well in a light bodied lager. It finishes clean with a lingering but thoroughly pleasant bitterness that, like all good lagers, makes drinking a tin a brisk affair.
