Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proefbrouwerij in Lochristi, Belgium.

’Fad bamse’ is a highly hopped and dry hopped imperial pilsner with a light body and lovely crispyness from the lager yeast.
A Danish pilsner is typically characterized by an alcohol content of 4,6% vol., piss-yellow colour and a sexless, slightly bitter taste. But it doesn’t have to be like this…! Draft Bear is Mikkellers interpretation of a ’pilsner’, heavyweight-style. With its powerful hop notes, high alcohol content and lovely golden appearance, the only reference to the pilsner style is the clean taste of the lager yeast.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pils, carapils and amber), light candy sugar, hops (amarillo and cascade) and lager yeast.

Diabobale (370) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 6, 2016
L’etichetta indica una imperial pilsner. Nella realtà dei fatti sembra proprio una strong lager con luppolatura americana. Nel bicchiere è ambrata, molto opalescente, con un cappello di schiuma bianco persistente e cremoso. Al naso tanto caramello, lieve carruba e qualche nota citrica. L’impiego di malti caramellati e di caramello è troppo predominante. In bocca ha una scarsa carbonazione, con un corpo pieno ma assai dolce e caramellato. Le note amare, quasi resinose, sono presenti in buona dose, ma la birra in sè non è convincente.

Panzerfaust (721) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 20, 2015
330 ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a mostly clear amber with a slight haze and a medium white creamy head that diminishes rather quickly and leaves a thin lacing. Aroma is initially hoppy with mild piney and strong citrusy character. A soft malty, grainy, side becomes clearer after a while. Notes of lemongrass, fresh cucumber, lemon zest, a bit of pine, citron and green tea. Softer hints of bread and grains. Characterful and very IPA-like. Taste is freshly bitter, delicious with only traces of sweetness. Moderate to intense, flavorful, but always refreshing. The crisp hoppy bitterness reminds of rough lemonade, fresh herbs, green tea, eucaliptus leaves and lemon. It doesn’t overwhelm and remains fully sessionable. Exquisite. Aftertaste and retronasal are quite intense. Light to medium body with high carbonation. Alcohol completely hidden. Overall it’s a fantastic clean and delicious lager. Highly hopped but easy to drink.

Rating #1238 - 27.08.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Hazy yellowish amber pour with a lasting white head, thick and frothy. Lots of aromas here, citrusy hoppiness present as well as some caramel, and a spiciness. Taste is bold citrusy hops, tempered with a sweet, bready consistency that disguises the alcohol content. Finish is quite dry, lingering pleasant spicy burn. Gorgeous strong pilsner.

Fukito (996) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 25, 2015
Pours a clear shinny deep golden with a white head. Aroma is pineapples and tropical frutis. Flavor is same tropical fruitiness with some peach and mango notes, very clear hoppy taste. Gentle bitter finish with a medium to heavy palate but not boozy at all. More of a strong clean IPA to me.

Purchase if you see this. Stumbled onto a 750mL at the grocery store and knew it was a must buy. Never fail brewery. Great strong lager with perfect flavor. Highly recommended. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

leghorn99 (193) - Livorno, ITALY - SEP 26, 2015
Versa nel bicchiere di colore giallo ambrato, schiuma abbondante, candida e dall’ottima persistenza. Aromi di grano, miele e caramello, ma soprattutto potenti note di luppolo; floreali, fruttate di ananas, pompelmo, pino e resina. In bocc il gusto dolce di miele e di malto, si mescola con quello amaro di luppolo che, rimane piuttosto in background. L’alto contenuto alcolico (8%) gli conferisce una struttura oleosa, con una scarsa carbonazione. Corpo medio e carattere maltato, note luppolate e floreali per un finale piacevolmente secco ed equilibrato.
