The Albert Strong Lager

The Albert Brewery and Taproom

Published December 1, 2021

If I was in charge of naming beers at The Albert, I’d call this a session barleywine. Except it’s not a barleywine at all, it’s a lager. And, at 6.4 percent ABV, it’s not what you’d call a “settle in for a six-pack” type beer either. However, The Albert's interpretation of the bock style is smooth and mild, with a candied sugar flavour coming through that is reminiscent of the great American barleywines.

It's by no means overpowering, though, and certainly dangerously drinkable for the ABV. Strong Lager acts as a wonderful diversion from the standard lagers we're often presented with, showcasing the depth of flavour such beers can elicit in the right hands.
