Description 

Brewed with Pilsner Malt and Huell Melon Hops, this easy drinking lager is the perfect beer for the Louisiana climate. Named after a trailer park in our founder’s hometown, this lager doesn’t take itself too seriously. We worked tirelessly to make this an affordable local lager for the everyday beer drinker.

Paradise Park by Urban South Brewery is an American Lager that is being judged as 1B-American Lager. Even with this being judged as an American Lager, I think it may be more of a hybrid of styles. Aromatically it is very fresh and spicy, with a noble-type hop aroma that is persistent and much more expressive than I'd expect for this style, but it is very inviting and pleasant. Faint fruity ester of peach and apple and noted bready pilsner malt as well. It's a bit hazy, very effervescent, straw yellow color with a creamy white head. In terms of flavor, the bitterness is quite low and the flavor is sweeter, almost corny. Not as crisp as one would expect. Low fruitiness with a spicy hop flavor at a medium-low level. Clean overall. Reminds me a bit of a hoppy cream ale. High carbonation and creamy with low astringency. Overall, the beer is very fresh and easy-drinking and kind of falls in line with the modern craft lagers. A bit more crispness and maybe bitterness and this is a winner!
