All the refreshment of old style lagers but with a greater depth of flavour and aroma, in keeping with the English Ale tradition. We use special lager malts and add 5 different hops from UK, Europe and USA at intervals during the boil, together with a small quantity of natural herb extracts. We then ferment and leave it to mature for over a month during which the flavour deepens and carbonation naturally develops. We do not pasteurise. Hogstar should always be drunk fresh and chilled.
