COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unser Prototyp geht in Serie. Wir hatten keine andere Wahl, die Forderung war eindeutig: Braut mehr Prototyp! Wir haben dem Druck nachgegeben, allerdings mit Vergnügen, denn auch wir hatten Lust auf mehr von unserem kaltgehopften Lager. Da wir noch immer auf der Suche nach einem Zuhause für unsere eigene Anlage in Hamburg sind haben wir unser Prototyp diesmal in der Brauerei von Christian Vormann in Hagen gebraut. Die Maische wurde aus böhmischen Tennenmalz. Die Vorderwürze wurde mit englischem Northern Brewer und die fertig gekochte Würze mit deutscher Perle gehopft. Zum Ende der kalten Gärung mit Lagerhefe wurde zusätzlich mit tschechischem Saaz und amerikanischen Simcoe kaltgehopft und dann für sieben Wochen bei 0°C gelagert. Hier also wieder unser Prototyp - irgendwie anders und mit 13,8% Stammwürze und einer Bittere von 25 IBU. Wir genießen dieses unfiltrierte und nicht pasteurisierte Kreativbier bei 6-8°C aus einem langen, schlanken Glas. Bei dunkler und kühler Lagerung erhält sich die Frische des Bieres am längsten.

Note: Original batch brewed at Rækker Mølle Bryghus on 16.1.2013, it was 13.9° and brewed with "Belgian abbey malt" in addition to Czech Tennenmalz.

RexTalionis (2133) - FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottled. Pours golden in color with a small whitish head. Ripe mandarin, strawberries and floral notes in aroma, a bit in the tropical way it feels here. Mandarin sweetness with hints of grapefruit bitterness in taste. Perhaps more of some cantaloupe notes are present later on with some grassyness in aftertaste though. Delicious.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 14, 2014
0.33 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Slightly hazy copper color. Floral and piney hop aroma with hints of onion and sulfur. Lemony, biscuity, honeyish and bitter flavor with lemony dishwash detergent note. Medium body. Fairly original taste, but soapiness is somewhat disturbing.

gunnar (4871) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from aleigator. Pours almost clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of peach and grapefruit. Taste is light crisp, moderate sweet fruits, light piney hops. High carbonated. Lingering sweet and bitter fruity.

pivnizub (8588) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle: Golden and a bit hazy, medium-sized off-white head that slowly collapses, pineapples and peaches with a piney touch in the hoppy and malty nose; medium bodied and soft, moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour; lingering mild to moderate bitter-hoppy finish, balanced by sweetish malt. Nice, nice…

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
33cl bottles BB 28/02/2014, Edeka Mohr Bonn. Pours a fizzy mudwater cantelope-yellow. More melon and citrus in the nose. Palate is nearly as smooth as an ale, but runny and easy-drinking as a lager. Very active carbonation. Grapefruit rind, some pine and grass notes, unripe cantelope mellon. Extra points for the courageous idea to cold lager this PA-hopped, CZ-malted, succesful DE-US crossover. Very refreshing, with minor rough edges and some hop powder floatees.

McWorta (487) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 22, 2014
Honey, golden in colour with a nice rather large pillowy white head. Good lacing. Noses of grapefruit, citrus with hints of honey melon and floral aromas. Shows a light fizz with light slick and velvety texture. Medium sweet with light dry bitterness. Short to medium pleasantly lasting finish.

aleigator (100) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle from P&M-Getränke. Orange, peachy color with a decent head, leaving a nice lacing. Rich floral aromas with apricot, melon, grass, lime, kiwi, and honey. Great, refreshing sweetness, defined by fruits, going along with a decent maltiness and hints of honey. Not too bitter, focused on the fruitiness, which stays on the palate the whole time, and is still the most recognizable ingredient, when hop bitterness in the end becomes notable. Smooth mouthfeel, with a dry aftertaste. Supported very well by a fitting carbonation, which is rather low. Missing bitterness makes the beer a little too one-dimensional in the end, leaving me a bit unsatisfied after a great start.

Belghad (9) - BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2014 does not count
Awesome smell but disappointed with the taste. The smell is really fruity and nice. The appearance is like a normal pilsner. Bitter taste.
