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.

BlazerT (284) - POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Golden, clear with big, white head. Poor lacing and head retention. The aroma is malty, light grassy and hay, quite good noticable the aroma of tropical fruits. Taste is malty - crackery-like, doughy, strong bitter esp. in the end. Some peppery-like accents. Medium body, slick texture, medium carbonation, little alcohol warming, finish is sem-dry and bitter. In general quite balanced taste, where hops give nice bitter character to this beer. Decent beer.

Drank with Liedewij 22-4-2015. An okay beer. Nice soft, but present carbonation. The beer is a bit overly bitter in my opinion. Still nice, has an unusual, interesting taste evolution for a blond beer.

Pours hazy as lots of Mikkellers lagers seem to do, this one being a hopped up imperial made me expect it too. Aroma is clean and crisp citrus fruits, would have called this out as an ale a couple of years ago but after trying various strong lagers i am fairly certain that i can recognize the specific cleanliness amidst even an ocean of hops like in this one. Taste is not as bitter as i expected but still very punchy. My mind drifts towards the Fathom IPL from Ballast Point with this being an more well balanced version of it. Less alcohol burn on this one as well and with 8% vs the Fathoms 7% it just shows how well made this beer is. Bottle from Mikkellers webshop.
