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.

johndoughty (4982) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Can. Bronze with a small head. Hardly any defining flavour although if you tried hard enough you could perhaps taste a hops. What does this bring to the world of beer-nothing.

NosirIwont (2348) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2016
Plastic bottle. 4.7%. Best before 12.01.17. Pours a clear golden, with a fluffy, off-white head. Good lacing. Sweetish aroma. Note of apple at first, but turns into more of a generic fruity note as it warms. Hint of malt in the background. Somewhat spicy hop note as it warms. Flavour is sweet, with fruit, apple and a hint of malt. Light caramel note as it warms and a hint of a metallic overtone. Mild to medium bitter finish, fruity with a grainy hint. Lingering spicy hop, grassy, apple and light cooked vegetable notes. Slightly oily palate. Overall okay, if nothing special, but good for the style. 22.08.16.

Holmen1 (4810) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2016
Flaske fra Systembolaget Visby, på terassen i Tingstäde: kobbergylden med ok hvitt skum. At den (iflg etiketten) er tørrhumlet med Saaz og Willamette merkes bare såvidt, men smaken er frisk, velhumlet og avrundet. Slank, og med en halvtørr slutt. Absolut lettdrikkelig. Første gang jeg har sett en 0,33 PET-ølflaske med skrukork, faktisk er det enda mer praktisk enn boks når man er på sykkeltur!

Enteogenisk (152) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 PET-bottle in wine glass. This is a nicely hopped lager. Don?t think I ever rated a lager this high. Maybe I?m just drunk.

BeerViking (4141) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2016
Can, light amber with a small head and a decent hoppy bite, a little toasty malt and orange, faint hints of honey and a light dry-herbal bitterness. Like a hoppy Vienna.
