BEER: Knappstein Enterprise Brewery Reserve Lager

Origin: Clare Valley
Approx cost: like $4 a bottle (I think)

I just traded an old management text book for a four pack of this and I'm kinda relieved I didn't have to pay for it. Tim Knappstein, Claire Valley winemaker, has done some really good things with wine. However I'm not entirely sure how to take this beer. It's like a straw yellow in colour with a dry yeasty kind of scent. Slightly floral although nothing too full on. The flavour is fairly rich, and for a lager it's quite full bodied. I guess what I'm trying to say is it's not my cup of tea beer. I think it'd make a good winter lager. maybe? try it for yourself.
