COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine a world without flavour. It’d be almost as bad as a world without beer. Well you’re in luck. This lager is literally bursting with hop-fueled taste. It’s been created by people inspired and obsessed with keeping the flame alive. Enjoy our handiwork.

A - Pours a clear golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of cracker and grainy malts with some grassy and floral hops and a bit of citrus hop. T - Starts off with a mix of grain and cracker malts with a touch of lemon and citrus hops. Through the middle, some grassy and floral hops come through with a bit of bitterness. The finish is a mix of grainy and cracker malts, grassy hops, and some lager esters. M - Medium-minus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and grainy finish. D - Very drinkable. Good refreshing lager with nice overall balance and a refreshing mouthfeel.

Draught. Pours golden with a lively white head. Malt, cut grass and citrus. Good hoppiness for a lager. Thin-medium bodied with good carbonation. Crisp and bitter finish. A refreshing beer. It’s great to find well crafted lagers out here.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 12, 2008
Bright golden colour with thick white head. Good lacing. Mild hop taste. Hoppier version of the C&B Blue Goose. Very clean, well balance hop/malt lager.

jonnyguns (1102) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Drunk from the stubby. Aromas of biscuit malts and subtle grapefruit/tropical hops. Pleasant light fruity smell. Taste is really easy going. Nice blend of caramel sweetness to go with the biscuit malts and light tropical fruit presence. Nice session beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pyobon (1094) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2012
(500ml bottle) Poured clear pale amber with nice off-white head. Nice but subtle aroma from the hops - floral, pineapple. Medium body with good carbonation. Hops dominate the flavour from start to finish. There’s very little else left in the flavour except at the start perhaps some lemony notes. However the hop flavours do evolve, ending with a good assertive bitterness that is not very long lasting. Overall a very hop dominated beer and somewhat unbalanced, but still very drinkable.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2012
Bouteilles de 33 cl. Arômes légèrement houblonnés (citron) et de malt pilsner. Robe blonde et limpide, effervescence moyenne et peu de mousse. En bouche, le malt de base apporte des notes très délicatement mielleuses. Le houblon contribue des notes citronnées, mais est moins à l’avant-plan que dans plusieurs autres pilsners néo-zélandaises. Finale assez douce présentant une très fine amertume. Pas mauvais, mais une lager assez grand public.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2009
Bottle. Bright, clear golden pour with a large fluffy white head that lasts ages and leaves a lot of lace. Nose is both hoppy and malty with notes of citrus, pine, grass and caramel. Flavour is more malty but is otherwise the same as the aroma. Very well balanced with plenty of lively carbonation and a nice dry, bitter finish. One of the best lagers I’ve had in a while.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2010
Pale lager that pours a pale yellow colour, with a white head that lasts. Not as good as Epic’s other beers, but a good place to start

A nice enough brew (that is handily eclipsed by many of its Epic brethren).
