COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Hoppy aroma of citrus, pine and grapefruit. Light malty and yeasty notes. The flavours starts light sweet and finish moderat bitter. The body is medium and the texture is juicy. Not much recogniced pils/lager about it, but good.

Diabobale (429) - 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.
