3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A supposedly lager that tastes like a standard well-hopped fruity IPA. Good beer.
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed more than one year before expiration date.
The look: Mostly clear golden-orange body topped by a persistent small off-white head.
In long: The hop forward nose is very fruity (citrusy, a bit tropical) as well as piney and with also a spicy edge. Taste is citrusy hops on top, tropical hops not far behind, a little doughy sensation (yeast? malts?), crunchy bread crust, some floral honey, dry grass, mineral water. Carbonation is a bit too much, almost like a soda-pop, hard to keep the beer in the mouth. I didn’t find any lager characteristic in this beer, even the mouthfeel was very much ale. A bitterness level in the medium range and a bit more spicy in the finish than I like my IPAs to be. Overall, an average India Pale Ale (even if not technically an IPA). Nothing remarkable here but I’d drink this everyday anyway, I love beer, I love beer so much, my family knows I have a drinking problem but they don’t know how bad it is, more than once I have considered telling my wife I’m giving up beer drinking, watch her have a heart attack, collect the insurance money, buy lots of beer.
