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.

Taster at the tap room. Jeez, about all I wrote down on this was "heavy catbox smell." I recall then explaining to my companions that I mean that as a good thing, but usually associate it with Amarillos. Clearly some of the newer hop varieties here can dig in that impression just as well, too. Should probably have had a full glass, but this was a pub/brewpub crawl, and I was pacing myself admirably.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Can. It’s a clear, pale golden beer with a finger-thick off-white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is piney and resiny with some pineapple and a touch of pale malts. It’s dry and medium to full-bodied, with a nice co2 level. Pine cones, pineapple and a touch of resins and pale malts in the flavor, with a nice bitterness lasting for a good while. A tasteful and refreshing one, one I could easily slake the thirst with on a hot summer day. If it wasn’t at 8% ABV. 140830

olio (6145) - 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.
