3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Between golden and amber shade. Nose of lovely new world hops; peach and tropical notes. These are the kind of hop flavours I like. Juicy taste with jam-like fruitiness, berry fruits particularly. Little floral influence. Feels worlds away from most lagers, but the taste was not distinctive enough to really grab me.

Light gold, white lace. Nose is apples, hay, grass, slightly floral. Taste is pine, grape, apple, hay, some caramel. Medium body... Good hop flavor, bitter.. A little plasticky in the aftertaste but very solid IPL.

Bottle from friend. I have not been too kind to the new style of India Pale Lagers, but this was lovely. Think of a normal Imperial IPA with the "fat" lager taste and palate. Not something I would seek out normally, but it was interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
W obecnej chwili trudno wyobrazić mi sobie lepszego lagera. W aromacie jest sporo amerykańskiego chmielu, lekka cytrusowość, wyraźniejsze owoce tropikalne, ale też sporo nut od słodu, wyraźnie tostowo - zbożowych. W smaku solidna goryczka, wysoka pełnia, wyraźne tostowe nuty i kremowe odczucie w ustach, finisz zdecydowanie chmielowy z lekkimi rozgrzewającymi gardło nutami. Pijalność ekstremalna. Zaskakujące i doskonałe zarazem!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear bright gold body under a frothy one finger white head that left lots of nice lacing. The nose is nicely hoppy, very fresh and leafy with a little piney note. The malt base is very clean and crisp. The flavor is just as clean as well, a load of fresh juicy and leafy hops over a light pale malt base. The malt is barely there, letting the hops do all the talking. Finishes with some light lingering bitterness. Light bodied and very easy drinking, very crisp on the finish, soft fizzy carbonation. Excellent lager.

Medium sized white foamy head on top of a cloudy orange to amber colored beer.

Flavours of hops, grapefruit, some apricot, some flowers, nice bitters, crispy herbs, some yeast, crispy hop tones... Just very well balanced and tasty as hell! Nice!
Aftertaste is crispy medium bitter with herbs, flowers, fruit and of course hops.
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, very good medium bodied and a creamy texture.
