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.

czlowiekwiadro (896) - POLAND - MAY 17, 2017
zapach dość mało intensywny. głwnie zioła i chmiele, lekka plastelina, trochę ostry i gorzki z kwiatami i owocami w tle, możliwe, że lekko mdlący? kolor dość głębokiego złota, klarowny, piana biała, skąpa i krtka. w smaku raczej wytrawne, lekko wodniste, lekko słodowe i biszkoptowe, ale głwnie ziołowe, chmielowe i lekko owocowe. sporo kurzu, ale nie w smaku tylko w uczuciu w ustach. goryczka średnia, ziołowa i kurzowa. nasycenie wysokie, przypomina weitzena. pomysł dobry, ale z wykonaniem gorzej.

jooilakon (71) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2017
330 ml can at ABV 4,7 %. Small white head and slightly hazy amber/brown colored body. Sweet fruity/citrus aroma and a bit of toffee/caramel. Taste is somehow sweet and hoppy. No idea why this is classified as a premium lager, as it is definitely more ale-like. Decent beer but slightly too watery.

Dont be fooled by pilsner in the title, this will appeal to those who like a light hoppy beer. Very enjoyable.

Foffern (1824) - 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.

Dahlstrom (377) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2016
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a medium white head. Moderate malty aroma of bread, hay, light syrup and lageryeast. Taste reflects the aroma. Light bodied, with a semi-dry texture. Average carbonation. Low bitterness.
