Like Gesaffelstein, Knappstein is a new take on an old idea. Whereas the aforementioned French DJ and techno whizz-kid has made industrial-German-electronic dance music das funkiest again, the Reserve Lager from the Enterprise Brewery is a new take on an old European concept.
Knappstein is a true lager, bringing back memories of summer days, New Order and giant pretzels. Bright and bubbly, this heavyweight brew resembles a good old-fashion Stella Artois or Kronenbourg 64. It tastes like lager should do ….. very lagery.
To be taken in moderation due to its Top Trumps alcohol score of 5.6%, this would be a fine accompaniment to bratwurst and Champions League.
As Underworld once said, “Lager, lager, lager’. ‘Nuff said.
