COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself - fresh, bold and slightly spicy - before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

fakebeersnob (152) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2014
Pours an amber to golden color. No real head to speak of. Aroma is bland. There is some hops to this. A bit of citrus. Some type of spice that you can taste at the tip. Ends with a bit of bitterness. Overall a mediocre beer that is not worth getting again. Drinkable but forgettable.

Thanks to iNBe. Quite fruity for a lager which really works in this beers favor as the amount of hops necessitates it. Serving: Bottle

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light spicy hops, creamy grainy malts, and a light sweetness. Not bad.

Look: pours dark golden color almost amber. White head. Very slight haze. Smell: pine. Grass. Sweet fruit. Oranges. Lemons. Flower. Taste: lemons. Caramel. Citrus fruit. Tangerines. Feel: feel is like a lager, but tastes like an IPA. Overall: ok beer. Good attempt. But just didn't quite pull it off with the flavor. Would like to see more tropical hops than citrus.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Where and how: bottle 355 ml
Aroma malty, crystal malts as base to aromatic herbal hops.
Appearance :
Top: mid sized off white cap. Fizzy mid
Base: clear amber.
Palate : chalky, mid bodied, short burst of carbonation.
Taste: not too intense. Front of caramel with candy like base. On edges herbal hop feel.
other notes more of new wave stronger American amber lager than Polish Mocne.

teemoney (62) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Hazy reddish-yellow, with thin white fizzy head that almost completely disappears. Smell is all lager yeast. Contrary to the scent, the taste is mostly bitter hops, with maybe some bread/ yeast in the background. Feel is smooth, with a little carbonated fizziness. Overall, really not bad. Definitely different. Probably not something I would buy again, though.

berkshirejohn (4530) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. Amber with a tight white head; rich citrusy aroma; medium body with some citrus; and a crisp finish. Very pleasant.

stevendoel (32) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 30, 2014
A hoppy aroma, but not too much. A pale ale in color. Taste starts with hops, turns slightly bitter but finishes with a dry, sweet, hoppy flavor -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Copper color, thin head, smells of hops, citrus, and grass. Taste spicy with hops and touch of citrus. Crisp bite but drinkable. Not bad.
