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.

16 oz can. Courtesy of Timo A. Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit, hops, mild bitterness, tartness and mild maltiness in a great aroma. The flavour is grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits, moderate bitterness, dryness, tartness and some sour notes. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.
