Darling Brew Sungazer Lager

What they say...

Inspired by the Sungazer

Light Lager
A flavourful light lager with medium aromas and faint floral undertones. Great sporting beer.

2.6% alc.

The Sungazer also known as the giant girdled or giant dragon lizard is the largest species in the Cordylidae family of lizards from Sub Saharan Africa. The Sungazer is a heavily armoured lizard and endemic to the Highveld grasslands in the interior of South Africa. This species is known as the Sungazer because of it’s distinctive behaviour of elevating parts of the body near the entrance to it’s burrow as if looking for sun.

The decline in the Sungazer numbers is a direct result of habitat destruction and the illegal collecting for the pet trade and traditional medicine trade. Wild Sungazer’s are smuggled to the USA, Europe and Japan where they command an incredibly high price. In South Africa it is illegal to possess a Sungazer without a permit.

What I say...

An impressive light lager, full of flavour and aroma, with a clean crisp taste. Regular readers of my blog will know I am not a fan of lagers, but this was one I would buy. It ticks the boxes when you want a low alcohol beer that is still enjoyable to drink. It was hard to believe that this one was only 2.6% ABV, so much so that I had to get them to double check this wasn’t the Slow Lager! I’d choose this over the Slow Beer any day.
