COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crafted in our brutal brewing workshop. The Kustom Lageris a smooth, no-nonsense brew. It’s dry hopped with cascade and amarillo hops to offer a spicy citrus edge. Plus it’s organic, and it glows in the dark. Need we say more?

Hallstein (117) - Skogn, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Aroma of citrus and grapefruit + a nice aroma of slight pils malt. Flavor is quite nice. It’s like if you take a good lager and added some GOOD hops to it. I was not expecting much, but this is really good! Flavors are grapefruity/citrus-ish hops with a nice but dry bready malt background. It finishes with dry malt and a crisp balanced bitterness.

Canette de 330 ml achetée au Beer Store (Hawkesbury, ONT) au coût de 2,30$. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréale et de citron. Apparence: La couleur est dorée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréale avec une pointe de miel et d’houblon. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #5687)

KeefOz (879) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2014
Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a two- to three-finger white dense foam head that held a while before diminishing. Laced as a few curtains. Carbonation low and coarse. Aroma of grain, light sweet malt and subtle citrus. Taste of slight sweetness and no obvious hops bitterness. Light body. Crisp, refreshing. Another lager.

Holmen1 (2337) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
0,33 boks fra Vinmonopolet Harstad, delt med Johnne: kort filmskum og standard farge. Behagelig aroma (amarillo?) og en myk og balansert humlesmak. Iflg varedeklarasjonen er der brukt Magnum, Amarillo og Cascade. Men at den er en "no nonsense lager, mean and green" er typisk markedsføringspjatt.

AtronSeige (555) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 23, 2014
Aroma: Malt: Medium Bread, honey, malt. Hops: Medium Orange pith, slight apple. Cardboard, Diacetyl (buttered popcorn) Appearance: Slightly hazy gold body. Medium white head, good retention. Lacing. Allowing haze for dry hopping. Flavour: Malt: Med Honey, Med-light bready. Dry finish. Light fruitiness, orange. Medium-high sweet on initial taste, medium bitterness following, then a dry finish and the cloying sweetness in the back of the throat that just lingers. Med Mouthfeel: Medium body. Creamy carbonation. Dry finish. Overall: A Premium Lager with more flavour and more aromas. I expected more hops, as per the description, but had very little (which is more to style). Check mash and fermentation. The beer looks beautiful. 330 ml bottle. Poured. Thanks Andre! 1C. Premium American Lager

effo (7) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014 does not count
Ljus men ändå lite färg, kort smak, inte mycket till eftersmaker. Tunn kropp, liten beska

ClubGonzo (3984) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2014
Can. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow body with a small white head. Nose is mils peaches, citrus, pale malts and hints of grass and pale malts. Taste is citrus peel, bitter herbs, pale malts and hints of peaches and melon. Slight metallic aftertaste. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Fair enough as a summer refresher, but not much more.
