4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Super fresh, it pours dark orange with a medium creamy head that brings all the aromas to the nose.
It smells citrusy and frutiy, the taste is well balanced with the malts and the huge amount of hops which make it zeasty on palate, then the lager carbonic appears and gives the beer a refreshing bitter ending that is great!
I want more!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 33CL from fonefan. Thanks, Jan.
Look: cloudy amber, ivory frothy to creamy head.
Aroma: quite hoppy, but not over the top, with notes of acid fruitiness - not so ripe pine-apple, gooseberry maybe - and some resins too. Some dirt too - glue?
Taste: juicy, dry, hefty mouth-feel, medium and velvety soft slightly puckering bitterness covering all your palate, sour fruit notes.
Excellent keller-style lager. Hops are assertive, but kept under control, without turning it into a IPL.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Bottledog. Pours murky orange / brown. Bursting with new world hops, pineapple, mandarin, grapefruit and lime zinging at you in all directions with pine, citrus and bitterness all scrambling for your attention. Definitely seems more like an APA than a lager, pilsener or whatever it’s supposed to be.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Pineapple and light honey ride this IPL’s fine bubbling, building a straightforward, enjoyable example of the style.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the light amber glow.
-The flavor profile is balanced. This is not one of those excessive examples.
-This might be advertised as a Pilsener, but the hop character and the mouthfeel all point to just another New World brew.
-Mouthfeel is lean and drinkability is high.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Clear, golden colour. Thick, bubbly, lasting, white head. A lemon biscuit thing going on. Simcoe hop. Maybe a tad of spice. Taste is dry, with a little citric tang. A light bitterness, too. Crunchy bitter palate. Finish is long, light bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Hazy orange amber, reasonable head. Corn hop aroma. Soapy pine hop flavour. Very sharp with bitter aftertaste. This can’t be a lager - it has too much flavour and is really good.

Love the hoppy lagers like this one and Mikkellers American Dream. MAD is a little better than this one, but this is a great summer or session beer for hopheads.
