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.

Side Project Volume 11.

22oz bottle. Poured in remembrance to Germany’s loss to Spain in the 2010FIFA World Cup. Clear orange amber color. Nice lacing, thick creamy light khaki colored head. Sweet Pils malts aroma, nutty, and a very welcoming floral hop aroma. Flavor is a harsh bitterness that coats the palate, YUM. Sweet malt, bitter hops. A great combination. Finishes with a sharp alcoholic burn. Nice bread, very nice hops.

Clear light to medium copper, lasting but small white head. Aroma is lightly of caramel malts, but loads of perfumey and floral hops. Flavor is a match. Definitely a touch on the sweet side, but not at all cloying, and the hops are fantastic, loads of floral character. Really enjoyed this one.

When poured into a pint glass, the foamy beige head, and the amber color made this look more like and IPA than a Märzen. The smell was more full of citric hops than anticipated. There was a distinct caramelized malt backbone to the aroma. The taste was a natural followup with a bready to sugary sweetness, a toasty middle, and a hint of spice in the finish. Alcohol did not feel like 9%, and the beer was easy to enjoy. A pleasing, long drawn out sweetness lingered on between sips. The sweetness may be a little much for some, but if you can tolerate that, this one will be a rewarding pour.

Bottle. Orange pour with some lighter head. Nutty malt, thorough fruit essence from apple tones to light citrus and pineaaple, some light herbal and grassy hints as well. Unexpected nice lager.

On tap at Fuck Store, I mean Brick Store Pub, and I also had the distinct pleasure of enjoying this in bottle form as well. Nice dark coppery appearance with a slightly fluffy head. It looks the same on tap. I hope they start to make more fucking lagers. A nice and fresh hop and malt aroma. There is a slight malt dominance, but it is still smelling great. Nice and crisp Pils hop aroma. Fuck I just had the Heller Bock from Sierra Nevada and this smells exactly the same. Seems a little more pungent, but oh well. Light honey aroma coming from the malts. Malt sweetness dominates. Very smooth and crisp on the tongue. For fuck’s sake I am drunk. Lingering hop bitterness provides a nice flavor. Slight toasted malt flavor. Overall, a nice thick lager. Hey, Terrapin didn’t fuck up on one of their Side Projects, imagine that!
