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.

An aggressive take on the pale lager. Great citrus hop character though its got some honey maltiness that balances the hop out.

mmahut (1266) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 14, 2014
Can. Pours in hazy pale body with high to medium frosty head, good retention. Aroma has pretty citrus fruity aroma, mango, floral, realy nice. Taste has high fruity bitterness, well balanced low to medium sweetness, malty and honey. Light caramel after taste. This is not a lager, but it’s really tasty. Amazing balance and fruity basket aroma. Body is full, medium carbonation. Good drinkability, if you just think about how the fermentation temps are low.

Draft @ beer temple. Surprisinglt good for a strong lager. Nicely hopped, for a great deal thanks to that deliciously fruity nelson sauvin. Still, this beer could have been better if it had the thicker body of for example a double IPA. There is only so much you can do with low fermentation and this beer proves that it’s just a more limited style.
