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. 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.

Beersiveknown (2742) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 30, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours bright amber with towering fluffy offwhite head. Aromas of citrus pith...seville oranges, grapefruit and lemon. Fairly pithy bitterness, full bodied, medium carbonation, orange juice, sweet malt. Well balanced and really hides its strength. Long tangerine amarillo finish.

Bottle from Voldby Koebmandsgaard. Pours hazy orange a medium off white head. Aroma is hops. Has a crispy pilsner lager taste, but then the beautiful citrus hops take over the palate accompanied by a backing of sweet caramel malt, ending with a good bitter finish.

A very nice and powerful imperial pils. As the description states, this is in no way a normal pils and really is an IPA in look, aroma, and even taste. Lager yeast seems to lend a stickier palate which i did not appreciate as much as others. Still a great beer.
