Typical Price:



Big Drop’s instantly recognisable branding is usually a guarantee of thoughtfully crafted, high-quality low-alcohol beer and one could be forgiven for thinking that Uptime, with its balloon-like orange drop wrapped in vivid bronzy pink, heralded a party in a can. So, it was something of a surprise to find this lager is all about subtlety and elegance and nothing like as big, bold and whack-you-round-the-chops as some of their more idiosyncratic styles (Citrus IPA and Pine Trail, come to mind ). Still, for all its subtlety, this foaming, creamy smooth, pilsner-like lager certainly delivers on both flavour and satisfaction – mixing luscious creamy-on-the-tongue toffee notes with a refreshing hint of orangey citrus on the palate. A double gold winner at the 2019 European Beer Challenge, if subtlety, tact and moreish-ness are top of your wish list, you really won’t be disappointed.

Makers Notes

“Easy drinking, full-flavoured but elegant. Light herbal and floral hop aromas, a hint of caramel with peppered spiciness on the palate and a touch of orange on the end.”
