COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bomble Bee 17 turned out pretty much how we wanted a pilsener style lager from our backyard brewery to be. Golden colour and a pearly white head. Elegant dry body and a refreshing bitterness. But then, while lagering, our brewmaster chose to bombard the brew with hops to give the beer its final profile. Grassy Saaz battling Flowery Willamette for your noses attention. We call it a Hop-Struck Pilsener.

Foffern (1781) - Bod, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle. Has a clear amber colour with an off-white head. Strange and fruity aroma of dust, apricots, grass, wet hay and some candy. The flavor is more similar to a Cech lager with saaz, wet hay, grass and fruity undertones. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, light body and a very light bitterness. A very strange lager with an off-centered aroma. Okay some how.
