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.

McNeillR (1140) - SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2014
Pale creamy golden with a decent dunt of a white head and peering carbonation. Steely, raw egg white melony and pissy sherbert. Extremely rich and cheekily hoppy initial taste, quenching and juicy gooseberry throughout. Smacks of lime and resin moving to tinglingly bitter pink grapefruit which tangs out onto the finish. Peppery, pilsnery - really whistles along the palate with a brass neck of bitterness. Linger is more lucious, bittering pinky pink grapefruit. Exceptional stuff, nevermind to squeeze out of a lager.

Bottle, as Sportsøl, BeerHive, Edinburgh

zacgillbanks (2260) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a hazy golden beer with sharp citrus and tropical fruit flavours, a creamy mouthfeel and bitter grapefruit and orange peel on the finish. Excellent for its relatively low ABV.

jamestulloch (1326) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden body with a thin white head that quickly fades. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of lemon, flowers and freshly cut grass. Bitter, hoppy flavour - light citrus zest, biscuit and sharp (but not unpleasant) metallic tang. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A floral, easy drinking beer.

Tropical fruit, clean yeast, mango, grapefruit, light biscuity body. Quite bitter, very clean. Crisp mouth feel, very drinkable despite the bitterness. Very tasty! Characterful clean beer. Love it. (33cl bottle from Beer City)

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle @ Cassidy’s, Dublin [230314]
Light amber, clear, big fizzy head, good lacing
Aroma of fresh grapefruit, fresh citrus, very light pale malts, super fresh citrus aroma
Taste of light pale malts, big fresh grapefruit, dab of orange zest, lemon, light pale malts
Palate - Light body, pale sweet malts, nice fresh zest, very refreshing. Finish has some lingering zest.
Overall - What a great beer - knew it was a 4 straight on tasting it. It was just the right beer at the that time. Came across as an hoppy IPA with a very pale malt base. Uncomplicated, but just does what it does very well. Certainly the best lager I’ve ever had.

Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo Junio de 2012. Buena premium lager con gran caracter y sabores y aromas intensos. Cuerpo ligero de 5.2 vol que se bebe muy bien y dejando un buen amargo final duradero. Refrescante y recomendable repetir de nuevo.

jonnyguns (904) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep orange/amber with a small white head that fades. Nose is a fruit bowl. Grapefruit, citrus, tangerines and passionfruit. Fucking fresh aroma. Taste is sensational...grapefruit/passionfruit bitterness lasts backed by a caramel biscuit malt finish. Swallow this stuff whole. So good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mike_77 (3037) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2014
Golden colour. Tropical fruit aroma like sweet pineapple juice. Flavour has lots of citric but sweet fruity tartness and bitterness. This balance makes it exceptionally easy to drink. Very full flavoured.
