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.

Love this brew, it combines the dry lager profile I crave and mixes it up with the thicker IPA styles I....also crave, at least in the summer. Looks like a slightly darker filtered lager, smells more citrusy than piney. Quite sweet, so one pint is my limit per session. But it’s great as one of several other lighter beers in an afternoon. I wish they made this all year, I would always have a can in the fridge, this would be great in winter, too.

50 cl can @ home
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.

Pours cloudy yellow with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, zesty tropical fruits, lemon, tart citrus and malts. Taste is fruity, floral and zesty with loads of tropical fruits, grainy maltiness, grass and tart citrus. Finish is warming, grainy, hoppy and lingering bitter with some grassy hoppiness and tropical fruitness. Quite strong, but nicely hopped imperial pils.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
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.

JulienHuxley (2990) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Can from the Bierkoning. Hazy pale gold pour with thick long lasting white foam. Aroma is really spicy hops, woody, cedar-like notes, piney, citrusy notes with a good dose of tropical fruit as well, light fruity boozy notes. Taste is hoppy, bitter, nice pilsner malt notes, bready, extremely easy drinking despite the ABV. Palate is light, well carbed, refreshing. A hit.
