Freetown is a crisp, clean, malty, golden lager, with a touch of sweetness, and a soft hint of subtle, spicy, floral hops in the background. A restrained bitterness helps keep the balance malty but not sweet, making this a smooth and refreshing beer. Named after a historic neighborhood in our hometown of Lafayette, La.
