The Broncos are cemented to the bottom of the NRL ladder. Hamstrings and calf muscles are being torn apart like a game of two halves. Club management has been sacked and the light is visibly receding from Kevin Walter’s eyes. These are dark days. Happily, they now make a drink for that.
Enter Common Ground’s Dark Days Dark Lager – and there’s no surprises this is one of the brewery’s best-selling beers. Coffee and caramel aromas are abundant and complement the beer’s restrained but decidedly roast malt body. It’s low on bitterness, the finish is clean, smooth and dry – and, yes, in spite of everything, it does make things a little less dark.
