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.

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!

Accidenti a sti fenomeni, magari tutte la lager fossero così, se ne berrebbero a quintalate. Davvero con le contropalle, bevibile ma anche sostanza.

Huge citrus nose, lime. Lovely pink grapefruit hoppiness, peach, decent malty backbone, sharp bitter finish. Solid fruity and hoppy brew, quite impressive for a lager.

hank37 (59) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2014
there’s some medicinal and earthy aromas happening, perfect carbonation, and a dry finish with a crystal malt type sweetness on the front until the medicinal/solvent note at the end.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Gyldenbrun. Kjempehøyt luftig skum med litt kremkonsistens. Litt lacing. Ikke helt klar. God aroma av mørke plommer. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er tørket frukt. Veldig tørr avslutning.

Para ser una lager recuerda bastante a las IPA por su sabor lupulado aunque con menos cuerpo. Equilibrada y de fondo amargo. Muy buena

Xavalias (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Magasin du Nord, Copenhagen DK. Pours slightly hazy light amber to orange with medium, off-white head. Aroma has light malts, but is mostly hoppy: pine resin, fruits, citrus. Crisp and moderately bitter. Very long bitter finish. Light bodied, very refreshing. Tastes more like a pilsener than a lager though.
