COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pils Lager
Our spring seasonal offering brewed with 100 percent positive vibrations and single-hopped with Citra hops. The presence of the Citra hop is elevated by a clean fermenting lager yeast that allows the subtle Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts to lay a crisp, bready foundation. The citrus and tropical fruit character of the Citra hop comes from kettle additions followed by a huge dose of ‘em again in the fermenter.

Bottle. Glowing hazy gold/orange with a huge rocky white head. Aroma is intensely bitter and resinous with a citrus backbone. Citrus moves to the forefront in the taste, adding a generous portion of orange rind and sweet malt. Really soft fluffy mouthfeel with light carb. This is really enjoyable.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Hazy yellow with a nice white head. Lovely hoppy aroma full of tropical fruits, citrus and a bit of grass. Flavor has light graininess, a sweetish note, fruity hops and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied. Very good and refreshing.

ScottWallace82 (64) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle into a glass. Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Tropical fruits from the citra hops in the aroma. Light mouthfeel. Great fruity flavor cut with bitterness at the end, with the yeast from Otter Creek keeping it unfiltered. A good take on a bigger pilsner.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass (with swirling). Hazy yellow with a decent steady white head. Fresh nose - grass after rain, citrus peels, light malt, flowers, faint spice. Bready maltiness, juicy citrus flavors, med-hi bitterness, grains. Light-medium body, dry, effervescent, quenching, easy to drink and fun.

Bottle poured a hazy yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, lemon zest, earthiness, dank bud and grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest and light grapefruit with a crisp dry bitter lingering citrus finish.

cheap (4056) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2014
At holly wood gardens, nice place. Except for the aroma, this comes across more like an IPA than a lager. Looks like a pale lager tho.

Yes there is a bit of a citrus thing going here. A bit hazy, nice appearance, medium yellow, decent head. Palate is mellow, the hops come through, but in an unabrasive manner. Decent.
