"Sometimes when you’re drunk you can see better."

This is <em>the</em> lager. This is the pilsner, the lager, the bottom fermented beer. This is the Captain on the deck, one of the lone lagers cruising on the ocean of ale. To Øl actually loves lager type beers, and sometimes lagers is missed out because of the many great ales present. Problem is that most people who brew lagers apparently has a taste of old dusty piss yellow obnoxious stale impotent beers. So now was the time to stir things up and tell the people how you can do a super hoppy, well balanced pilsner type beer!

Ingredients: Water, Malted barley, flaked oats, Hops (Simcoe, Citra, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial) and Yeast.

UXO (1527) - CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours hazy pale amber with one finger of pillowy dense off-white head, excellent retention and heavy, chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is citrus, piney dank resin, musk, caramel malt. (9/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium body, soft carbonation, mild bitter finish. (4/5) So, what did you do tonight? Oh, just had the BEST PILSNER EVER. Lovely hoppy lager - in this case, a pilsner - that has about as much relationship to fizzy yellow adjunct garbage as chalk to cheese. Getting more of the Centennial and Citra citrus, and Simcoe west coast dank, than the Nelson Sauvin (my new favourite hop!) vinous character, but very nice regardless. Decently complex and layered, with lots of character. (Gee, hard to tell that these guys are old brewing buddies and students of Mikkeller’s, huh?) But, unlike his Øllen Om Bogen, this isn’t a hop bomb at all. I keep expecting the hops to blow up and storm my taste buds in an all-out assault, but they’re actually extremely polite as they completely redefine what a lager can be. The label says “Sometimes when you’re drunk you can see better” - I could drink enough of these to see better, for sure. (18/20)

prawlie (1502) - ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle at Sheffield Tap. Fizzy amber with a bubbly head. Citrus hopped aroma, fragrant. Clean, dry, light citrus. Pleasant hoppy ale, it’d make for a good session, but does leave a dry aftertaste. Has a good malty body.

Tap@AIBF2014. Pours golden with a rich head. I did detect corn in the aroma, but the American hops did manifest themselves in the taste. A surprisingly rich pine aroma for a lager. Medium bitter finish.
