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.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Keg, The Pony (UES), 19/02/14. Bright lager looks with a narrow white collar leaving lace specks. Slightly vegetal, fried chip, plantain aroma with lime shavings and barley squash. Dry and brittle with curry leaf, woodland notes, lingering popcorn-like pale English malt. Bitter afters more in English GA camp than lager. Expect more from any beer brewed with Citra. Just OK.

DSG (6326) - 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.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Dank piney and grassy hops, clean malty base, moderate bitterness, and a crisp hoppy finish. Looks like the ratings for this one are all over... maybe bottle inconsistency? Anyway, I loved it; a great summer chugger.
