Evans Premium Lager

Evans Premium Lager recently launched it’s first of three beers to the public. The Original is full of flavor, composed of a perfect body, a true golden color, welcoming aroma and a clean and smooth finish. Containing a Czech yeast, fine American barley styles and a combination of German and American hop varieties. Evans Original can be enjoyed at any time for any occasion, for it delivers the flavor and thirst quenching characteristics every lager fan enjoys.

The Black Lager’s roots stem from the Original, but incorporate substitutions such as dark and chocolate malts to intensify the body and give the beer its color. Lastly a small amount of espresso malts is added as the finishing touch. The Black Lager incorporates all the flavors expected while maintaining a lighter body.

The Light Lager uses the same recipe as the Original but with less malt to lighten up the calories without losing flavor.

Try one today and let us know what you think! http://www.evanslager.com

Evans has also created their own app to find the locations closest to you and to keep track of up and coming events and promotions.https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/evans-lager-official-app/id441318474?mt=8
