The Arctic Fox Ice Cap Lager is a refreshing beer, best served arctic cold. The rich golden colour and body of the beer is created by using a traditional mashing process combining three different Australian malts. The refreshing bitterness is created by the early addition of Cascade hops and the distinctve stone fruit aromas are developed from the generous addition of Summer Saaz hops at the end of the boil. Arctic Fox beers are naturally carbonated and bottle conditioned. You may notice a thin layer of yeast at the bottom of each bottle of Ice Cap Lager, this yeast provides a natural protection for our beers.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2015 The appearance is a nice golden colour and pours with a good head. The aroma has a fair bit of banana to it. Not sure if this is how it is supposed to be... I couldn?t smell much of the hops that are supposed to be there. It says to serve ice cold, but I actually liked it more as it warmed up. I should note this was on a run-out special so it might have been a little old. Good level of carbonation. Overall, I think there are better beers out there for the money.

Havent had this for a while but new release is a marked improvement. Poured well with cloudy amber colour and a decent white head that lingered. Subtle citrus nose with sweet caramel tones from the malt. Thought carbonation was improved from last time as well. Good crisp sessionable lager with light to medium body. well done.

330ml bottle- a nice lager, some good fruity aromas. Better than any mainstream lager with a nice refreshing finish.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 Bottle courtesy of Nick. Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. Nice citrus enveloped by caramel malts on the nose. Rather pleasant in the taste. On the sweeter side of things as far as lagers go but I dont mind that. Toffee malts back the citrus in the taste. Good lager and wouldnt mind a few more of these

Amber golden colour, moderate carbonation and no head to speak of. Light aroma, actually quite fruity. Taste is a cloying, sweet flavour with a bitter after taste. I didnt expect much, but its actually not bad.

Keg. Lightly flavoured lager with sulphury notes. Not much to it. Light hop bitterness, didnt really get any hop aroma.

Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with nice billowy head. Plenty of sweetness in the aromas and some resiny hops. Not too bad. Flavours are much the same with some hop spicenss offset by grainy malt. OK beer. Like the label for what it is worth.
