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.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
Sweet biscuity malts. Abundant hops. Amber. Bitter. Fresh, high quality nouveau pils. This surprised me, what a solid everyday lager it was.

M_Sack (625) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy gold, off white frothy head. Some caramel malt with plenty of grapefruit and just a hint of pine. Similar flavours of grapefruit, with a subtle caramel malt providing a back bone. Quite bitter and dry. Highly carbonated. Almost an ipa in flavour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muggus69 (2142) - 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 (25472) - 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 (2912) - 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!

Dervock (1007) - 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 (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - 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.
