COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lager meets IPA in a winning combination.

Our Fathom India Pale Lager combines time-honored lagering techniques with the hop profiles of a West Coast IPA recipe. The cold-fermenting lager yeast provides a clean base that allows the citrus and pine aromas from the hops to really shine. The result is a gold medal beer with a refreshing, easy drinking character and just the right amount of depth.

Clear amber color with white head. Dry cracker, berry fruit, spicy hop aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice lagered bready pale malt, spicy hop, berry fruit flavors___tangy drying finish---tasty.

Aroma is earthy hops, corn malt, pine, decent. Appearance is golden amber, white head, clear. Taste is malty, an abrasive permanent marker thing happening, apple, not that good. Mouthfeel is medium body and light to medium carbonation. Overall, this is not real good.

Sigmund (6289) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2015
355 ml can, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 7,0%. Golden colour, huge white head. Aroma of piney and citrussy American hops, some spicy hints. Medium sweet and dull flavour, not as crisp as I expected it. Bordering on "bland", the hops are not nearly as dominant as expected.

Unde (790) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Orange beer with smallish head on top. Aroma has pines, caramel sweetness, grassy hops. Taste has honey malts, pines and perfume. Grassy hop flavours in a not so lager beer. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Great malty and faintly hoppy aroma. Oh, gives a taste of fresh malt. Mild. Almost watery. Hazy.

Poured from a can. Gold color, almost clear. Big white head. Lots of lacing. Not much aroma. Tastes like a hoppy Pilsner. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very clear, light gold color. Solid and lasting head of two fingers. I pick up three rings of laces from the first three sips; some chunky spots in between. I can smell the raw hop immediately upon opening the can. Im shocked to get mostly caramel malt and cream on the initial smell from the glass. A third whiff brings a nice balance between the two, but it still leans to the malt. Smooth round start of crystal and caramel (pils?) malts. The hop is mostly bitter and is light in the swallow but lingers well in the aftertaste. This is a very easy beer to drink with full flavors and nothing extreme. The body is rich, particularly for what Id expect from a lager. This is exaggerated by the low carbonation level.

Geokkjer (7238) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2015
Can. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of herbs, nettle, citrus, spices and malt. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some spices, bread and citrus. Medium body, average carbonation.

milewide (1984) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Dark golden color. Surprisingly little aroma compared to their ales. Rich flavor profile...with nice bitter finish.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Pour on tap at HopCat, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big orange, booze, some butter, slight spice, touch of grass. Taste was a mix of grass, biscuit, orange into a bit of booze, butter, slight grain, finishing slightly bitter.
