(As The Cnadian Dream, 5.5%) 330 mL bottle. Translucent orange-gold with a small white head. The aroma is loaded with American hops - no way I’d guess that this is a lager. APA maybe. The lager thinness shows up after the initial hit of hops in the flavor, however.

330 ml bottle as "Mikkeller Punch Line". Ah, I get it now - it’s only a rebadge, the joke’s on you! Light golden amber body with a tall head. Strong floral hoppiness, smells like an APA. Tastes like an APA too with distinctive fruity hoppiness. Very drinkable and refreshing but I don’t think a small bottle of session lager (even a good one) should cost this much (4.- EUR). Also, Ratebeer, if you insist classifying this as a lager then is it really not bitter enough to subclassify this as a Pilsener instead of a "Premium Lager"?

Take home Keg from at Stirchley Wine; hazy dark orange pour with frothy off white head, quite a citrus aroma, wow this is a hoppy lager, big citrussy hops and a hint of grapefruit . The taste is clean like a lager but seems more like a hoppy pale ale. Must have used bottom fermenting yeast.

Beautiful beer, nice big foamy head. Yellow with some orange notes and leaves lacing behind. Scent has sweet malts and grapefruit, very hoppy scent for a lager, but promising for a hophead like me. And what a taste! An explosion of hops, there is grapefruit and citrus and at the end there is this dark pine forest lingering in my mouth. But there is still some sweetness in it that does keep this beer on lager side, because it almost turns into American Pale Ale with those american hops. But awesome beer anyhow!
