A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – Harringtons – Lazy Sunday Summer Lager

Harrington’s Lazy Sunday Summer Lager. They’ve been kind to me have Harrington’s and this was waiting for me when I arrived home after a couple of days away

It comes in a 12 packs of 330ml bottles, (or you can get it in 1.25l growlers), a beer that is 5% ABV and is 1.3 standard drinks and about 150 calories a serve size.

Brewed by Harringtons Breweries in the style that is based around a Euro ager but is best defined as Spice/Herb/Vegetable and they do that in Christchurch, New Zealand

After Mowing Experience

Lazy Sunday is a refreshing summer lager that is brewed with the infusion of tangelos, coriander and crushed root ginger.

This limited release summer lager is brewed just for the summer season and makes the perfect accompaniment to any kiwi BBQ

So, What could possibly go wrong?

It’s a lovely aroma on opening, like a good old fashioned shandy, or lager and lime, or lager top.

It has a nice aroma, and looks very lager golden yellow in the glass, but there is an earthiness about the way that this initially drinks that makes it a bit unusual, and uncomfortable.

It’s also not the ‘fullest’ drinking of beers, very light and unchallenging, not much by way of lager bite.

But then it finds its legs and comes alive. There is some big work being done by the orange/Tangelo and you get a hint of the ginger about it particularly in the finish part,

It’s a nice summer day beer without fuss, and I enjoyed it with some fresh bread I just made which really brought out some of those hints of fruit and ginger in a nice way.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. This is much more polite and less in your face as say one of those Monteith’s Radler, or DB Citrus beers, this is beer that’s got the additions , not additions with a splash of beer about it. If you like your beer first with taste as a reason then this is a fine choice.

The double dip review

  • Where did I get it? Harrington’s sent me these they are the best!
  • Am I enjoying it? I am, I did all the required chores and this is great reward and pick up.
  • Would I have another? I’ve got all of them, and I’m going to enjoy them all, so yes.
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? For sure, a sunny afternoon and at that point where you want more than soda or water, and the nibbles have arrived and you want to enjoy both, this!

Music for this:  Changesonebowie by David Bowie on Vinyl but you can on Spotify here 

Changesonebowie was David Bowie‘s first widely selling compilation album, issued by RCA Records in 1976. It collected songs from the 1969–1976 period, including the first LP appearance of “John, I’m Only Dancing“.

this is original vinyl from the back of the box in the garage.

This isn’t my turntable, but you  get the idea


Any ale or lager made with herbs, spices or vegetables. The additive should be distinctive in the aroma. See beer description for flavor. Body, color, hop character and strength vary depending on the type of spice, herb or vegetable used.
