Crafted using noble German hops and European malt, Top Shelf is a flavourful yet easy-drinking lager that finishes smooth and clean as the rink after a Zamboni run. A portion of the proceeds for each beer sold goes to support the NHL Alumni Association and the many charitable organizations it supports. This red European style lager pours with a brilliant copper hue and a gentle cream foam. Vienna and Crystal malts lend a smooth malt aroma with a hint of toast and caramel. Notes of cherry at the start quickly changes to refreshingly crusty bread flavours with the mild bitterness of Noble German hops. The finish is crisp and clean with a pleasant dryness. Overall, very refreshing, smooth and well balanced.
