COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Frankenlager is an IPL, a hybrid of beer styles is freakishly tasty and features bold aromas of citrus, tropical fruit and pine which shine like a diamond, thanks to cold conditioning and out clean-fermenting lager yeast.

Bomber from Beer Run, opened 6/11/14. Pours a hazy amber-copper color with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of mild caramel malt and earthy, grassy hops. The taste is grassy hops, earthy hops, a bit of citrus, mild caramel malts. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, high carbonation, moderately crisp. Solid.

Cloudy reddish amber. More body than any lager that I have tried! Fine blend of surprising malt body and hops.

Aurelius (4127) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bomber. Could do without the cadaverous label. Fluffy eggshell head on a trippel-looking blonde body. Pleasant, sweetish, hoppy aroma. Lots of up front hops and fizziness. Plasticky sometimes. Sourish fruit pith. Lightly sweet. Medium to slightly heavy body, frothy mouthfeel. New Leaf Market.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Nice strong white head of varying sized bubbles. Light citrusy and malty aroma with some saw dust, pine sap and cereal grains. Color is a dark gold. Noticable bitterness up front with more pine sap, grapefruit pith, chalky grains and some rye. Light citrus late swallow. A bit unbalanced with the bitterness to malt profile. Finished dry and a bit astringent. A decent brew for a lager.

The aroma is peaty, boozing and mostly lacking hops. The flavor is a bit more rounded with a solid presence of earthy/floral bitterness
