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.

Beerenberger (1366) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Smells fruity with some pine and citrus notes. A slightly cloudy orange amber with a mostly diminishing off-white head and minimal lacing. The taste has a slight sweetness with hints of orange, grain, and a hoppy pine like finish. Medium-light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, a very satisfying beer. Would be a great hot Texas summer afternoon beer.

Tap @ Fermentoren. It pours a dark yellow with a coppery tint, sporting a thin crust of white head. The aroma presents with a surprising amount of crisp yeasty stuff, accompanied by heavy malts and raw wort. It also has lots of flowery aromas and - naturally - the crisp citrus and orange of the amarillo. Taste is excellently balanced, also with a crisp yeasty feel; it starts out sweet and frothy but quickly turns dry and bitter. Quite fresh and easy to drink, considering the ABV. Interesting take on the pilsener type; not just a pale lager hopped to shit but a well balanced and thought-through beer altogether. I dig.

martjoobolut (555) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2014
0,33L bottle. Pours golden-amber with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, honey like notes, tropical fruits, and malt. Taste is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, some grains, and caramel. Finish is fruity dry bitter. Feels light, but not watery. Alcohol is noticeable. Overall: very easy to drink despite the alcohol. The fruitiness is nice; doesn’t feel like any imperial pils I have had before.
