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.

Older bottle so it may have lost some luster. Strong malt and lager yeast aroma and flavor. Hops added a nice touch. Average Pilsner color and body with a slight heft.

Aroma is light malts, straw, yeast, citrus and grapefruit. Taste is very pleasant and crisp malts excellently balanced with a wonderful hop profile that is grapefruit, passionfruit, citrus and light earthiness. Finishes very smoothly. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
