COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Forget all you know about light lagers, and ready your palate for our West Coast Lager. When we decided to brew a lager we wanted to put our own spin on it. Malt-wise it is brewed like a traditional light lager, but then we do what we do best – we hop it! Massive amounts of American citrus hops makes this lager something all hop heads will rejoice about. Finally a fizzy yellow lager that’s jam packed with flavor!

I’m not a lager drinker and this isn’t really a lager! It’s a perfect bitter and hoppy lawn-mover beer. It’s good!

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2014
200ml draught at Crowbar & Bryggeri. Cloudy grey-golden body, missing head, spotty lacing to the glass. Smell of grassy hops, hints of fruits as well. Semi-dry flavours of lemon and grass. Dry bittering hops to the ending, rather long-lived. Medium bodied. Good stuff, drinks well (Oslo 19.06.2014).

Draught @ Henrik Øl og Vinstove, Bergen
Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, catpiss and hint of butterscotch. Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long citrus and bitter finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

On tap at Henriks. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Pine cones, resins, and some peaches in the aroma. Not much malts. It’s quite bitter on the palate, with peaches and some grapefruit peel in the flavor. Medium body, quite dry, soft carbonation. Bitter fruity finish. Some diacetyl all the way, else it’s a quite nice one. 140615

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 09.01.2013, tap @ Henrik Øl & Vinstove:
Fruktig lukt med preg av lys malt, humle, vingummikrokodiller, tørka frukt, høy, korn, gras, papp, smørkaramell. Frisk tørr smak med preg av lys malt, humle, ugras, våt papp, beiskt gras, tørka frukt, høy, barnåler, våte blad. God bitterhet som set godt. Kjedelig!

On tap at cardinal. Pours golden with a small white head. Aromas packed with citrusy hops. Clean and crisp flavors. Good dry finish. NB. Tried this about 14 days later, and the beer had a strong butterscotch aroma and flavor. When I tried this the first time this wasn’t there. I don’t blame the brewers or the beer for this change.

Tap at Schouskjelleren, march 7th 2013. My second ABC, enjoyed after the firewood stout. Hazy light golden, staying medium foamy offwhite head. Quite hoppy nose, tropical peach, mango, hints of cocos. Dry lager taste with a continued fruity dominance, peach, grapefruit, mango. As expected a solid bitterness, ending with a dry and fruity finish. Absolutely my kind of a prem lager.
