COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Somewhere between a smashable lager and a hoppy IPA lives our beautiful and wonderful Love Tap Double Lager. It has a pig on the label, wearing a hat, a monocle and a bow tie. Very fancy pig indeed. Well suited to a very fancy beer.

StevieT (995) - - NOV 23, 2013
Super foamy head, intriguing aroma, smooth and a bit malty. Fruity flavours give it a zing. Give it a try

ALLOVATE (2619) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2015
Produces up a hazy orange gold with a messy and dense pad of white that lasts the length and laces well. Fruity and tight, spicy hops on the nose; soft perfume atop a hint of sweet marmalade, grapefruit, pine and lemon sherbet. Quite weedy and acrid on the palate with a lengthy weedy, rockmoss-like aftertaste. Assertive, edgy bitterness. A touch of honey and marmalade upfront offer some sweetness to balance. Quite creamy in mouthfeel with good body. It slowly softens, or is that just my tolerance lapsing. I don’t mind it to be fair, but I’m sure it was a better lager back in the day at 7.1% ABV! (33cL, no date stamp, Dan Murphys, Canning)

Dervock (607) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle - pours opaque gold with a big white head. Aroma is grassy, bit of nettles, some citrus and cereal. Hops dominate the taste, slightly fruity finish. Lively palate.

RafeAU (390) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2015
Fruity tropical hop aroma, clear pale straw colour, small frothy head. Like an IPA without malt backing it up - this makes the finish somewhat bitter without malty sweetness to balance, seems more bitter than its stated 34 IBUs. Pretty good, an interesting lager, something different.

sm89walt (1816) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2015
330ml bottle. A clear golden amber with a solid, lasting and lacing one-finger white head atop. Fragrant aromas of tropical fruits balanced by a fresh, long hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a firm mouthfeel with medium-ish carbonation on a light to medium body. Well balanced and plenty of character; also deceptively drinkable given its ABV.

TedE (494) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2015
330ml bottle into middie glass. Hoppy nose with some malt. Cloudy golden amber, creamy small head. Little carbonation. Bitter taste with even more bitter aftertaste. There’s some toasted malt and alcohol notes mixed in there. Not really a lager, not really a pils, not an IPA. Interesting but not really enjoyable.

Davewato777 (4) - - DEC 27, 2014 does not count
Presents well. Nice fine bubbles. Aroma is slight floral. Mouthfeel is like velvet. Good malt body. Finish is citrus and dry. Very refreshing. All seasons in one mouthful . This Moon Dog is quite session able Great work as usual Moon Dog.

mkel07 (4299) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique August 2013. Much the same as the first version with a solid amber colour and good body.

Niksko (480) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a fine white head. Nose is pineapple, passionfruit, orange, caramel. Flavor is light and crisp, slightly spicy, some juicy passionfruit, lagery finish. Pretty good.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a shall white head. Fresh hop aroma, some floral and sweet citrus. Taste is quite typical for a lager, just more of everything. Finishes crisp with some orange. The older edition was better however, but I assume this has been made to be more sessionable
