"Sometimes when youre 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 l 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.

The best lager I have ever had! (bottle at the Anderson, cheers Jim!) Very light, straw coloured pilsner. Nose is lychee, lime, great hop character, the Nelson and Citra really shine through. Light body carries the hops very well and the low bitterness lets their flavours really shine through. Had with delicious Thai-style bream and the combo was to die for! Get some, drink it, enjoy it!

Bottle 33 cl.
Fruity and hoppy aroma. Medium sweet, and longer nice bitterness. Quite easily accessible, if you like good bitterness. Perfect for drinking from the bottle.

reebtogi (4106) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with hints of caramel. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with a fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the tongue. A very hoppy, but tasty pilsner.

ianwelby (441) - SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Hazy orange-amber beer with a decent bubbly head. The blend of hops really comes through in the aroma too. That blend of hops is also balanced very well, not allowing the likes of the citra to dominate. Theres not as much aftertaste as I anticipated but its nice and fruity along with the lingering hop. Unsurprisingly given the brewery its very tasty.

nimbleprop (4621) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2014
On tap at Kaelderkold in Barcelona. Comes out a mostly clear gold with some frothy, white head. Nose has some nice hop character, lemon, pine and soap, some crisp cracker malt, but otherwise fairly simple. Flavor is the same, piney, soapy, some lemon zest, a little crackery malt, grass, straw, but everything is fairly mild. Clean, watery finish. Malt backbone might need a tweak to hold things together.

dnicolaescu (709) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 27, 2014
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.

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2014
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 its supposed to be.

My Bottom Line:
Pineapple and light honey ride this IPLs 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.
