COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boom ShakaLager is the next installment in Terrapin’s “Side Project” series of beers. This Imperial Lager is made exclusively with German malts, German hops and a true Bavarian lager yeast strain.
While 99% of the beers brewed at Terrapin are ales, we figured we should show some love to the lager style as well. Not that this off-beat, big beer is going to be brewed to a traditional style or anything.

Bomber. Pours a muddy brown, burnt orange color with a very quick dissipating head. Nose is very sugary with sweet caramel and toffee. Taste is grainy and a wee bit tart, with hints of grass, and bread alonmg with caramel. Finishes on a dry note and on the same notes. Terrapin ...stay with you ales. Quaff Score 6 / 10

Pours a amber gold with an off white head and sweet malty, caramel aroma. Taste is sweet, strong malty flavor with caramel, grains, and bread notes leading to a sweet, malty, slight bitter finish.

Bottle pours clear orange brown with thick yellow head. Sweet malty aroma. taste matches aroma - very sweet, malty, a little grassy. Mild but prolonged bitter after taste. Palate a little syrupy. I kept this refrigerated but may have been past its prime. Too sweet for me and I like sweet beers.

DiarmaidBHK (3581) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange. Pours dark orange with a thin khaki head that leaves some lacing. A bit of floral on the nose. Bog and boozy on the tongue. Burns a bit going down. Wasn’t feeling this one.

wlajwl (4066) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Aroma is strong malts and fruit, somewhat similar to a barley-wine. The flavor is caramel/toffee, malts, fruit, a hint of earthiness and a mildly hoppy finish.

Bomber bottle from a trade with Dchmela. NIce deep golden pour with a big head! Very flavorful with grapefruit hops spices and barley all with incredible balance. This one was worth waiting for! thanks Dchmela!

Bomber, cloudy orange red color. Very sweet, lots of malts and caramel -- almost syrupy. Bitter hops come through on the finish, but it could be balanced better -- almost feels like drinking two beers, one that is really sweet chased by one that is really bitter. Not enough harmony between the two competing flavors. Also, seems somewhat hot - can really taste the alcohol. Not a big fan of this one.

Strong notes of malt on this amber colored imperial pilsner. The malt show the sweetness as well as the the deep abv. The finish gives a sense of bitter hops.

Pours slightly hazy orange without much head. VERY sweet nose, caramel and alcohol dominate everything else. Flavor still sweet but not as syrupy as the nose would have me believe. Full bodied, light carbonation.
