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.

KeefOz (1138) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2015
BB 19/03/16. Poured a clear orangey amber with a two- to three-finger off white foamy head that retained very well as 5mm of foam for the whole drink. Laced well. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma very hoppy - nice and tropical fruity plus citrus/grapefruit. Taste of caramel malt sweetness, citrus and a piny bitterness; not an over-bearing flavour as the aroma might suggest. Light to medium body. Creamy, a bit dry with a nice bitterness on the finish.

Maris (1153) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 25/1/2015. Pours a medium golden with a smallish head. Has a strong passionfruit aroma with some herbal notes in there as well. In the mouth, you get more passionfruit and other tropical and stone fruits (particularly mango and apricot), some biscuity malt, and intense, puckering hops, with the bitterness sticking stubbornly to the back of the mouth. The Nelson Sauvin is particularly prominent. The texture tends towards creamy and the carbonation is quite lively. A real hoppy treat which is packed with flavour. You won’t find too many lagers better than this.

Bottle thnx to Beerlover_ben . Opened ( in all honousty ) not withoud any expectations . Highly approved by both Ben and Vincent , so i guess this should be the shit .. Pours full amber , with a good white head . Smell is hoppy, very aromatic yet not really bitter . Taste is bitter ( no extremes ) , corn-like maltyness . Hoparoma is there, but I guess it faded since it was originally bought . Good carbonation and regular mouthfeel . Full in taste , still , yet perhaps not as good as it once was . Plus I also feel like this isnt so innovative, loads of breweries now do low ABV ( either high or low fermentation ) with a lot of hops . So , its not THAT out of the ordinary for me . Yet for what its worth , mission accomplished, they made a very nice lager . just needs that little extra to really be up there as one of the ( or the ? ) best lager .

gad905 (199) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Keg at BD ShepBush. Clear burnished gold, head recedes gently. Nose of citric and resinous hops. Tastes light sweet, medium full bitter, more bitter orange, grapefruit, resin. Very dry, light body, can feel that this is over 5% though. Oily, medium carb, lingering resinous bitter. Not like any traditional pilsner for sure, but very nice.

Tap at Brewdog Shorditch. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light woody citrus hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

cervmagpt (415) - PORTUGAL - JAN 2, 2015
Review based on personal notes (doesnt fit BJCP styles - base beer: lager). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: high notes of floral and fruity aromas, reminiscent of passion fruit, mango, peaches and pine. no malt aromas or very faint. APPEARANCE: orangish color and a bit hazy. average moussy and ivory head with good retention. TASTE: notes of passion fruit, pine, and resin. high bitterness that lingers well beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an experimental lager with high bitterness and overwhelming hop presence.
