ARFUR DALEY Wrexham Export Lager, 5%ABV, available at the Gravity Station in Barrack Lane, Cardiff Wrexham Lager was originally brewed in 1882 by German immigrants and in 1949 the company was bought by Ind Coope and, following many mergers became part of Allied Breweries and eventually Carlsberg-Tetley who closed the brewery down in 2000.
The local MP bought the rights to the name and a consortium of local businessmen set about building a new lager brewery in the town and Wrexham Lager was brewed once again in 2011.
Wrexham Export Lager is pale gold in colour and pours with a tight, foamy, white head. Sweet, biscuit malt aromas are present, together with a hint of citrus in the nose. Smooth, caramel notes in the flavour lead to some bitter-sweet hints with toffee overtones. An easy-drinking malty lager, reminiscent of its German heritage.
