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.

Wow. I didn’t realize there are quality pilsners out there! Nice orange pour w/ a big white head that leaves lacing. The aroma consists of a beautiful blend of hop & malt. The taste is bitter & crisp. Very clean at 8%. This is damn good!

Draft at northdown. Just a mess of a beer, oxidized, tastes and kind of looks like an imperial red ale.

Pours an orange amber with a super frothy head that's sticks to the glass, then settles lasting till the end. Citrus and fruit notes with a hint of lager yeast. Pilsner malts up front then a mild bitterness to follow. A very good imperial pilsner.

August 2010. From bottle. Pours golden yellow with a while head. Aromas of citrus, hops and malt. Refreshing hoppy flavors with the alcohol showing through, but in a nice way. Great balance.

’Bottle. Yellow hazy, unfiltered. A lot of pale malts, golden lager yeastyness. Overall a lot of slick pale malts. Green, slight fruity hops. Body medium. Pale malts, nicely bitter. Has a bit of alc there, but not in a bothering amount. Interesting brew. Lots of flavour of the pale lager- kind, but just condensed, without being sticky or icky or overly boozy. Feels enjoyable.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This pale golden beer pours with a large foamy head. It has strong orange marmalade and citrus fruity flavours, malty and caramel notes with a bitter-sweet pine finish. An excellent Double IPA.

Cold bottle. Clear sparkling orange with a foamy white head. Smell of orange and tropical fruit. Caramel malts - rich, enduring flavour. Reminds me of De Molen beers. Slightly watery initially but then sourness, citrus and an Amaretto finish. Good effort. Very nice.
