COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

Benfi (627) - DENMARK - MAR 17, 2013
Tasted from the bottle, on 12/12/2012. Pours of muddy bright amber color. Aroma is quite intense, sweet fruits and a tiny hint of caramel. Taste is excellent, no way i can call it a lager! Tons of citrus&grapefruit notes, packed with pines and fresh grass. Aftertaste is a heck bitter.

harrisoni (14509) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
33cl bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy amber with a thin white head. Nelson sauvin aroma. Tough to say if this is a lager or not. Lots of NS all over it and then trademark sweaty sox comes in at the end. I mean it’s a nice drinkable beer. some of the NS is very good. I must have liked it though cos it disappeared in 5 minutes.

Lilja (1908) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2013
En trevlig törstsläkare. Välbalanserad med smak och doft av citrus och tropisk frukt. Lätt kropp, lagom beska och kolsyra med en lättsam beska.

bottle at home from bottleshop
This is what I look for in an easy drinking beer! gooseberries from NS and grapefruit (centennial) feature big on the nose. Tangerine juice and grapey goodness, light carbonation medium body, sweet malt balance. Very easy drinking for its relatively high ABV, no sign of any alcohol.

Ibrew2or3 (7262) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle courtesy of sebletitje, thanks Sebastian! The 33cl bottle pours into my Tilquin Gueuze glass with a clear copper body and thin gold edges and supports a thin dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice boquet of malt sweetend floral hops, citrus tangerine like hops and a touch of mango. It seems rather Simcoe like. Nicely hopped up fresh brew. Diggin’ this already. The taste is just as crisp and fresh and hoppy as the aroma hinted at. I get grapefruit and tangelo and a bit of bitter floral hops and a touch of onion dank hoppiness around the edges. The mild sweet malts create small islands of malt sweetened citrus hop flavor here and there. This is light crisp bold and refreshing. I wish I could get this on a regular basis in the summer. Terrific brew.

ekstedt (5711) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg, Sweden. Clear golden, medium white head. Piney and citric hop aroma with some tropical fruit. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonaton. Dry with medium bitterness.

sebletitje (7134) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2013
bouteille 33cl. Cuivrée-orangée, col épais blanc-beige. Arôme est agréablement fruité plein de houblons, pamplemousse, raisin blanc et autres agrumes laissant un bouquet subtile de citronnelle. Palais est aussi très houblonné avec une pils comme il en faudrait plus souvent. Très beau fruité et houblonné avec un ajout et une balance excellent du Citra et Sauvin qui sont tout de suite perceptible. Palais reste sec, note de pamplemousse, raisin blanc; presque de barrique de vin blanc, amertume très agréable, fini herbacé.

humlelala (1065) - DENMARK - FEB 17, 2013
(33 cl bottle from Toft Vin; BBD: April 17th 2014) Pours a hazy amber with little, off-white head that diminishes quickly. Good regeneration and lace. Aroma is hoppy with notes of tropical fruits. Oily texture, medium carbonation and body and a dry, lingering and slightly bitter finish. Taste follows the nose with more simcoe bitterness present. Pleasant choice of hops and quite tasty for a lager.

Pleasant aroma, taste and palate, but I’m not thrilled. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]
