Two heads are better than one, but if you’re driving, then one Two Heads is better than two. Two Heads Bright Lager is a conundrum too. Extensive research via Dr Google revealed only that the Australian Beer Co, its brewers, had recently received massive investment from Coca-Cola Amatil, thus negating its craft beer credentials. But hey, I’m not here to talk about brewing politics, I’m here to review beer and this one’s pretty good.
I sampled mine in the Black Sombrero, a funky new “Taqueria & Tequileria” in Lismore, NSW. The Black Sombrero is a pleasant surprise in Keen St, it’s decor colourful and authentic, its menu, simply mouth-watering and its staff welcoming and informative (note to self, must do more research on tequila) .
A crafty schooner revealed and fresh, golden lager, aptly the colour of tequila. Despite its name, it only had one head, but it was a good one that lasted till the bottom of the glass. It’s a real palate cleanser with a double fizz that stimulates both the back and the front of your mouth. The flavour is crisp and summery with a vague hint of apple or wax jambu.
All in all, a refreshing lager that easily hold its own among the commercial brews. Craft beer? Probably not. Quaffable lager? definitely.
