COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brought to life using a lager yeast strain, this beer is a sensory pounder. Ignoring the idea of a traditional lager balance, Guest Lager hops the line and intentionally scales the flavors tied to the ale spectrum. This 8% ABV style bender wrangles an impressive canon of flavor into one place. Did we mention hops? This particular lager hosts enough Nelson Sauvin & Falconer’s Flight to soothe any weary traveler.

olio (6138) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2014
500 ml can.
Pours hazy golden color with a large white head. Hoppy aroma, resin, grapefruits, lemon peel and some grass. Grapefruits, gooseberries and hops on the flavor, slight grainy notes, hay and pale malts. Slick palate, bitter grassy finish. Very refreshing, alcohol well hidden, just a slight burn on the back of the throat.

lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2014
500 ml can. Pours a nice cloudy yellow colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma of rich juicy floral hops, pineapple, grapefruit and grass. Flavour ensues; loads of fruity bitterness, floral notes, pineapple, grapefruit, grains, resin, pilsner malt and fresh herbs. Dry, grassy, heavy bitter finish. Alcohol feels and warms as it should in this style. Great. Perfect beer to start your Sunday with. Definitely a perfect beer for rich hobos (not me) as well. Should be consumed in the streets.

Aroma is heavy and fruity with citrus and tropical fruits. Feels juicy. Flavour is also sweet and heavy with grapefruit, citrus, some gooseberry bush and caramel. Alcohol is present, especially in the finish but it does not disturb. Feels very Mikkeller.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Fad: Gul diset øl med et stort skumhoved. Lækker frisk duft af citrus humle. Smagen er ekstrem frisk med masser af humle. Minder mest om en IIPA, men flot øl alligevel.
