COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Intergalactical Imperial lager was brewed by Ben (Bridge Road Brewers, 50 Ford Street, Beechworth VIC 3747, Australia) & Urbain @ Struise, as a superb collaborative effort between both breweries and Simply Hops (Hop Pocket Lane, Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Kent, TN12 6DQ, UK). While Ben shared his Australian Lager brewing techniques, Simply Hops procured us with Fresh Galaxy hop flowers. Only 4 ingredients were used, Vleteren water, German pilsner malt, Australian Galaxy Hops and Weihenstephan yeast. This lager not only bottom fermented, but also matured on its own bed of C02 for six months.

Nose: maltiness forward, honey background. Mouth: A hint of honey, hay, grains, easy drinking and adventurous lager. My friend mortlach would have loved this one.

Bottle shared during RBWG 2015 - Tampa. Pours clear yellow with a foamy white head. Sugary, with notes of cereal, grains, straw, white bread. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. More bready and grainy malt character to finish, vague citrus notes. OK.
