Eagle Bay Wheatbelt Lager

Eagle Bay Brewery

Published May 12, 2022

Described by the Eagle Bay brewers as a true "paddock to pint" experience, Wheatbelt Lager is a beer that showcases malt from Wagin’s South Farming. Made with their Munich malt and rainwater collected from Eagle Bay, there’s certainly an argument to be made that this could be one of the most traceable beers in WA. A considered selection of Australian grown hops completes the picture, yielding a light and refreshing beer of place.

The beer itself is a clever contrast of light yet full-flavoured, exhibiting bold malt characters of biscuit, toasted bread, nutty spice and very gentle maple-like sugars. Restrained hopping contributes just a touch of balancing bitterness, providing structure and a touch of familiar noble hop character. A slightly gripping mouthfeel carries some residual malt sweetness into a moderate and clean finish where gentle spice, Wheaties like flavour and some grassy bitterness linger.

Good stories can enhance good beer, and in this instance a wonderful story of simple beer made using simple principles is matched by a beer that is well made, delicious, and has the added bonus of making you feel good.
