Brewed with Pilsner malt, this authentic lager is dry hopped with Australian Galaxy hops to create big, bold flavours. It’s then ’lagered’ (cold-conditioned) to produce a full, well-rounded flavour . This golden lager is light, crisp and refreshing with subtle malty flavours and a hoppy aroma of tropical fruits, citrus and passion fruit. (Contains barley). Gold medal winner at the International Beer Challenge 2014

R4N5H (369) - SINGAPORE - AUG 29, 2015
Draught pint at The Galvinisers Union, Bromley-By-Bow on 18-Aug-2015. Hazy pale colour with a medium sized head which dissipates quickly. Light body and medium to high carbonation. Aroma of grain, malt and a faint sniff of pine. Sweet, malt, grain and some fruits. Hop levels are just too subtle. A little too commercial and lacking character.

Kauge (757) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from a Viking Line ferry. BB 31.10.15. Pours a very clear medium amber with a small off-white head leaving more than little lacing. The nose is almost nearing a pale ale with its sweet and grassy hints of hops (no specific Galaxy character though), but the pils malt comes through rather vigorously, giving it a grainy and almost honey-like aroma. It tastes quite good, like a more floral-sided pilsner with notes of honey and hay, with a bit of a grassy bitterish finish. Active carbonation, slightly watery on the palate with a bit of graininess, and a rather abrupt, bitterish finish.

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2015
Medium offwhite head. Clear yellow body with carbonation. Fruity floral perfumy aroma with earthy notes. Sweetish resiny gooseberry and fruit taste with earthy mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish gooseberry and fruit aftertaste with earthy notes. Interesting. Not very lager-like at first sight. (0.33l bottle, I don’t know where from.)

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 31/10/15. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.
Clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet fruitiness, tropical fruits, melon, mild bitterness and malt in the aroma. The flavor is hops, mild bitterness and sweet malt. Too sweet for me.

josanguapo (322) - SPAIN - AUG 12, 2015
From zombier. In Duvel glass. After dinner. Nice for a lager, but I expected a bit more aroma. Taste is better, and drinks easily. No foam.

olsvammel (4237) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle from a cruise ship to Åland. Light hoppy smell with boiled vegetabels. Similar taste. The boiled vegetables was disturbing but the beer was drinkable, but not very enjoyable.

33cl bottle. Smooth finish. Didn’t get any of the promised tropical fruits flavours. Very drinkable nonetheless.

sm89walt (1823) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2015
330ml bottle. Pretty good this. Pale lemon yellow with a small and fading white head. Clean, crisp and refreshing without being dull. Lemon, lime, pith and juice. Some biscuity palte malt presence too. Light to medium body, lively mouthfeel and a fresh finish. Hugely sessionable.

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2015
The nose is very muted for a dry-hopped beer. Just a light herbal thing. It is watery in flavour with just a mild straw-like flavor and tinge of grassy hop. Not very impressive.
