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.

Pours a deep golden color with a large white head. Notes of candi sugar, catty hops, earth, and yeast. Packs a punch.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 Quite orange for a pilsner. Smells hoppy in a cheesy way, yeasty, a bit of grassiness, quite metallic. Tastes flavourful for a pilsner - hoppy with a sharp copper-y taste. Body is full for a pilsner - oily with a dry finish. Good for a pilsner, but then again pilsners have never been that exciting for me.

Pours cloudy deep golden color with a pillowy just off white head. Slightly sweet malt and city's notes in the aroma. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and slightly sweet. A touch of spice comes through with the grainy citrus flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Dark gold pour with a middling off-white head. Citrus and hops predominant in the nose., with the hops once more taking centre-stage in the flavour alongside some caramel, fruit and booze . A very drinkable take on a style that isn’t my favourite and verges on ipa territory.

Magnum via Beerworld Kingston. First of the day on day four of fix everything at the house at once. So yes, this was needed at 10 am. It was either that or I may not be able to go back to work tomorrow....and what do you think would happen then? Hmm? Yeah, I would stay home in pain and still probably work on a project in the basement. So, with that in mind, I set out and drank this beer this morning. Yum! An pungent pine sap and sweet malt nose erupts from the magnum. Body is full. Strong malts and grainy yeast. Curtailed by the acrid hop bite that goes just a touch too far reining back the malts. Second third and fourth quaffs slowly relax my spasm ridden back. To the point that I found my self on the riding mower singing Irish drinking songs whilst mowing about the hop yard. Bliss!

Color cobrizo sin filtrar con espuma color crema algo jabonosa. Aromas de malta caramelo y flores. En boca es ligera con textura malteada, el sabor muestra caramelo con un final amargo, seco, herbal y lupulado. Rica y refrescante.

Great aroma. Pine, citrus and something sweeter like caramel. The poor was a clear golden amber color with very thin head. The taste is lightly sweet up front that opens up to some nice bitterness that lingers on the palate. The body was kind of still and oily. It doesn’t resemble a pilsner very much at all but I really enjoyed it.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus, grass, floral hops, mild sweetness, toasted bread and lager yeast. Some bitterness to the finish.

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!
