22 oz bomber from DLD 2011. Time to open this, I guess. Pours a big puffy head over a darker gold lager color. Takes a while for the head to finally settle to a short layer. I am not getting much in the way of nose, probably a consequence of letting it age for a year. well, then again, there is a welcome whiff of alcohol after a few more sniffs. Sipping it does give the nice impression of a high-powered malt liquor, without the headache inducing fusels (Heloooo Big Hurt). A true gargleblaster to give my sore throat a wakeup call, with not just alcohol but fizz. I would have thought this would have the standard Noble hops, and a hint of perfume suggests that, but there’s also a citrus bender that suggests C&Cs. It’s a nice way to celebrate ALMOST finishing my Oracle Database class and getting back to looking for a job.

jmgreenuk (4951) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
Tap at Milkeller Bangkok. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is malt, weak citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a zesty citrus yeast palate and a short, slightly spicy bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Aroma is fruit/berries, citrus/citrus peel, malts and slightly perfumed. The flavor is fruit/berries, malts, citrus and slight heat/alcohol/tartness in the finish.

jredmond (5623) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Sampled at GABF 2014 with Andrew, Mel and company. Pours a light golden body with white lacing. Aroma is fresh hop and crisp, clean malt. Mouthfeel is light with carbonation and notes of fresh hop, grass, citrus, and clean malt. Very good clean, hoppy pilsner.

nuplastikk (4698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2014
I know I’ve had this on tap before, but this is my first time having it out of the 22oz bottle. Slightly thick/hazy orange-tan. Foamy off-white head. At first the lager tones escaped me, the crisp clean hop tones stole the show, but at the same time they are smoother, more rounded than you’d expect from the style, no real big noble hop bite. This drinks more like a Strong Pale Lager than an Imperial Pils. And it drinks quite nice. Very well balanced. Highly enjoyable beer, sessionable. Excellent.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2014
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beer a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt,, caramel, and spicy hops. The flavor is swweet with notes of malt, alcohol, and caramel, leading to a dry finish. A bit raw.

Bule (858) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2014
22oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Darker in color than the usual pils color. Very malty and medium hop level that overpowers a little.

kkleu357 (358) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2014
On tap at Sugar Maple in Milwaukee. It’s dark in here, but this beer appears to be a nice amber color. Very sweet aroma. Lots and lots of malt. Good hop bite, but mostly sweet tasting from the grains. Interesting and good.
