XXXX (pronounced four-ex) Summer Bright Lager from Queensland, more specifically, Milton, Brisbane. Just an hour drive north from where I live.
I’ve had XXXX on tap before at the pub and I was not impressed. The backyard box says:
If XXXX is a working class man, this low-carb drop is his bubbly, sporty sister. It’ll get - and keep - your attention for being fruity, sassy and easy on the eye. As a boutique offering from Queensland’s world-famous drinking culture, it cleverly offers the refreshment of a full-strength beer, with a slightly lower alcohol content.
Great, I’m going to drink a girl beer.
That description is right on, it’s really sassy and girls will probably love it. It’s very drinkable, but there’s no denying that you’re drinking a
delicate dainty lighter beer. I wouldn’t mind drinking this on the beach, but I haven’t figured out the open container laws here. I see people do it all the time, but it can’t be legal, right?
I might have to visit the brewery in the future to try their other, hopefully more respectable “boutique” brews.
