Bomble Bee 17 turned out pretty much how we wanted a pilsener style lager from our backyard brewery to be. Golden colour and a pearly white head. Elegant dry body and a refreshing bitterness. But then, while lagering, our brewmaster chose to bombard the brew with hops to give the beer its final profile. Grassy Saaz battling Flowery Willamette for your nose’s attention. We call it a Hop-Struck Pilsener.

Towey1989 (962) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Can. The Bee17, 4.7% ABV. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, grain, some cereal, slight pine, subtle orange and grassy hops. Taste of caramel, grain, slight metallic and grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slightly metallic, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. It’s not terrible, slightly better than mass produced rubbish but it’s malty, metallic and thin.

As "Bee17 4.7%" Dark golden colour. The aroma and flavour have light fruity, hop. An ok thirst quencher. Marginally better than a regular lager.

Hopmaestro (847) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma is weak, but contains a fruity and citrusy tone with a very faint note of pine. Medium bodied and tastes actually pretty OK for being a macro. Low malts and somewhat sweet with pears, melons and citrus. Decent!

330ml can, clear gold, small white head, light caramel malts, grainy aspect hop character is muted, a bit flowery. More sweet than bitter, light bodied, lively carb. A bit messy but not bad.

Seffle (356) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2015
33cc PET-bottle from SB 150630. 4.7%abv. Pours a clear golden amber with a firm lacing white head. Malty nose with weak citrus. Bittersweet taste with bread and malt and very non-floral hoppiness. Can easily live without this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
