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.

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.
