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.

[Another century celebrated with a Mikkeller beer - this time 8400] A slightly hazy golden going for amber beer with a huge bubbly white head. The aroma is very hoppy with notes of hops, grapefruit, pollen, caramel, and some malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel to start off with - seeming very ordinary at first, but then when the beer start running along the tongue things pick up. The powerful hoppiness really unfolds with notes of grass, grapefruit, flowers, alfa acid, and what not, leading to a crisp and very bitter finish which at first runs along and tickles the sides of the tongue, but at last leaves a bitterness on the tongue - craving another sip. Mixed into it all are light notes of caramel and pilsener malt. A really crisp, refreshing, and quaffable beer.

But be warned - this is no lawn mower beer, since the 8% ABV will creep up on you unnoticably and will impair your ability to operate machinery - or is it just, that it is so good, that you forget your duties and rather just have another?

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of JanLaursen. Pours a cloudy, reddish amber with a creamy and lacing beige head. Lovely aroma of great aroma hops, intensely peachy and almost herbal. Medium body only, subtle malts only but loads of juicy fruits and then again a shitload of aroma hops leading to a bit of a hop kick in the finish. Has no real character of a Lager though. 210113

(On tap) Clear, deep golden with a creamy, off-white head. Fruity or perhaps rather floral aroma. Medium body with a solid base of pale pilsener malts and then a distinct, floral hopping. Very fresh and not harshly alcoholic as other beers of this style. 110507

omhper (19243) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Deep golden, creamy head. Grassy nose. Dryish with fairly slim body. Powerful grassy hops dominates. The slender body struggles under the weight of the hops. Lingering very bitter finish. Like a polish Mocne, but much more bitter. I believe it’s impossible to achieve pilsener like characterics at 8%.

Cloudy orange - amber beer with a small white head. Soft semi dry palate. Rich hops but not too bitter at all. The hops are the usual flavours but also with a touch of lemon cream. A little aniseed in the finish. Good!

Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007
Hazy golden color. Strong, dry, malty flavor, still some sweetness. The aroma shows some German hops and fruitness, as well as the flavor, with a bold bitterness, well aromatic. Excellent.
