O'Connor Brewing Proper Lager
What the brewers say
"Crisp. Clean. Proper. This helles-style lager showcases a brilliant golden hue and exceptional clarity. Balanced yet complex characters lend a malty sweetness. Finishes with a subtle, fruity, and floral hops bouquet that is sure to complement all occasions."
What our panel thought
"An inviting aroma full of sulfury floral hops gives way to a light, clean, crisp, and easy-drinking beer with enough malty sweetness to complement the drying bitterness of the hops. Its clean lager profile and bright carbonation coupled with its light body make it easy to go back for another sip."
What our editors thought
"A touch of pleasant sulfur on the nose yields to a soft touch of biscuity malt. On the sip, it's initially crisp and light with a touch of Melba toast selling a sweet/savory mix, but it finishes with a touch of sour milk and a bit of lingering bitterness."
