An experiment in fermentation, this traditionally brewed lage underwent secondary fermentation using ale yeast. Enjoy for yourself the classic dry lager flavour with subtle hints of ale character.

I enjoyed the ale/lager hybrid. Fairly yeasty with Belgian characteristics of wheat, lemon and a touch of coriander (just to add to the fullness). Didn't notice any sort of skunkiness.

Pale golden, slightly hazy. Nose is slightly citric with a slight honey note. Light bodied with gentle carbonation. A slight floral note. Earthy with just a hint of skunk (this was tasted fresh at the brewpub, by the way). An interesting experiment but not a very good beer.

Pours a hazy light yellow-orange. Aroma had a nice malt presence behind the aromatic citrus hops. The body was grainy and chewy in the beginning, as a lager might be, while the flavours were of piney hops like a nice APA. I was expecting this to be a little more unbalanced and disjointed, but I enjoyed the mix of flavours and even the interesting mix of palates – the finish was creamy and smooth, while initially was chewy and grainy.
