Wakey, wakey, lager lovers. Tangerine Dream is here and it’s a real eye-opener. Gaze upon its shimmering copper color. Breathe in its pillow soft fragrance of citrus and honey. Prepare to quench your lips with selected hops: Magnum, Cascade, Galaxy and Mosaic – blended with Light Caramel, Pilsener, Munchener and Crystal malt. But don’t sleep on it. Because remember: You snooze. You lose.

TEJA (2420) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Sampled at SBWF 2012. Thick light beige head. Clear amber beer. Hoppy aroma but unfortunantly a bit of pop-corn as well. A light caramell taste with a balanced hop taste and a medium bitterness.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2012
[keg, SBWF2012] Golden pour with a large, white head. Aroma of orange, lemon and grassy hop, some straw. Quite a nice citrus flavour, a mix of citrus from the hop and the added tangerine. Finishes pretty quickly, and quite dry. Orange lager indeed [27092012]

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 5 Oct 2012) Pale copper colour with brief, beige head. Fruity nose with orange, citrus and slightly toasty malt. Fruity, malty taste with notes of orange, toast, chestnuts and a fairly dry finish with a toasty citric bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well made and quite nice.

Pyrmir (5527) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2013
On tap. Aroma spicy, malty, orange and orange zest, white pepper. Taste is about the same, dominated by spice. Finish with fennel and saffron. Strange beer...

gyllenbock (7699) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. Clear golden with a white head. Nothing special with this one, it was like a normal lager but with some light notes of orange.

omhper (23430) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Draught at SBWF. Clear deep golden, small head. Aroma of white pepper and lychee. Dryish with plenty of tropical fruits and light-medium body. Notes of metal in a mid bitter finish. The generous hop aromas makes it really worthwile.
