Métaphore Sapere Aude

Brewery: Métaphore
Country: Czech Republic
ABV: 4.9%
Style: Pilsner – Czech

Brewer Description: (from bottle) This is my quest for a dream beer that straddles the fine line between two worlds – traditional, old world lagers and rustically charming beers of the past. Inspired by the mystery of an earlier era I never experienced and by the environment around us. My poetic vision for a truly refined expression of a lager beer with a sense of place. It was brewed only with local organic ingredients, a generous amount of local Saaz hops and 30% local einkorn. Lagered to perfection for 5 months in a virgin Acacia wood barrel. This gracious lager beer with a sense of place is ready for you to enjoy here and now with friends old and new.

Intro: A 750ml bottle with a best before date of 1st November 2022. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A mostly clear golden colour with a two finger white head that had excellent retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, honey, grainy, wood, herbal, with light citrus zest.
Taste: Light sweetness, honey, lemon zest, herbal tea, and maybe even a touch floral.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I thoroughly enjoyed this with its light clean flavours making it just so easy to drink. Super refreshing on a hot day.
