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.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle pours cloudy orange gold with small off white head and light lace. Aromas of grains, tropical fruit, grassy hop character with a light malt sweetness. Medium light body, bitter hop character, med carbonation, chalky mouthfeel finishing bitter, with lingering tropical fruit hop character and bitterness and balanced light malt sweetness

Muggus69 (1609) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2015
Draught @ brewery, Melbourne Pale gold, holds a fluffy head. Subtle nose - cereal, pale malts, hint of fruity, spicy, herbal hops is nice. Full bodied, quite clean crisp, highly drinkable, carbonation spot on. Pleasant body; soft pale malts, good hit of hops without being overtly hoppy - tropical fruits, leafy spice & dried herbs. Bitterness moderately high, but good balance. Very drinkable, good to see lager being made with justice.

oh6gdx (23143) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Bottled (2013, backlog). Orangeish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, grains, mild floral and resiny notes. Flavour is resin, birchsap, caramel, mild floral and earthy notes along with some nectary notes. Quite alternative lager.

ALLOVATE (2683) - 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 (661) - 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 (485) - 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 (1827) - 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 (592) - 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.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique August 2013. Much the same as the first version with a solid amber colour and good body.

Niksko (518) - 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.
