Laid Back Lager, Cornwall

I'm gearing myself up for the solstice this Wednesday - it's not a religious thing, I just like setting light to stuff in the garden on the longest day as generations of us have for millennia.

What we'll need this year as we commune with the ancients is a cold one. Beer always seems appropriate at these points in the year and here's a lovely one from M&S made by the Harbour Brewing Co in Cornwall. It's a correctly made lager, matured over 4 weeks and has a wonderful herbaceous and lemon peel palate. It's well hopped but not like these over-done craft beers. Balanced and refreshing - only 3.5%, chill well and drink to the sun!
