Australian towns seem to have a disposition towards making some sort of claim to fame. A lot of them go down the "big things" route – which, being honest, are disappointing about half the time – but only the great towns get a beer named after them. That’s why Block ‘n Tackle Brewery, from Kincumber on the NSW Central Coast, have launched Kinny Lager to put their town on the frothy map – complete with cans designed by Biffy Brentano featuring the town's boardwalk memorial to its ship-building heritage as well as local wildlife.

And doesn’t that name just roll off the tongue: Kinny Lager. Far out, it’s even nice to type. Pouring an appealing hay bale colour, Kinny Lager boasts subtle sweet and floral aromas with a carbonation that just flaunts refreshment.

Kinny Lager will never get sued for false advertising because it tastes exactly how it smells. Toasted floral notes tantalise the front of the tongue followed by a malty sizzle in the centre, all rounded off by a piquant sweetness, courtesy of the flaked maize. It's a crisp, easy-drinking lager that will please local skaters and shipbuilders alike, all while doing a good deal more to promote the town than a giant banana or massive muffin tray.
