Urbanaut Miami Brut Lager
What to expect:
Light and zesty in a delicate 250ml can
Urbanaut Brewing based in Auckland’s popular city-fringe suburb of Kingsland have made a real name for themselves for their creativity over the four-and-a-bit years they’ve been in operation. This beer brings together some of their more ambitious ideas. First, it comes in the delicate 250ml can – a format they’ve made their own. Second, they’ve proved expert in Brut-style beers – these are brewed using the same techniques developed for low-carb beer so there’s no residual sugar. This creates a really dry beer with a light and airy mouthfeel. And in this case, they’ve layered lots of complex hops that deliver papaya, passionfruit and citrus to create a perceived sweetness.

This light-bodied but robustly hopped lager loves spicy and creamy curries. It has enough thirst-quenching qualities to battle the heat and enough hops to hold up to the spice. Go Thai red chicken curry.
