COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proefbrouwerij in Lochristi, Belgium.

’Fad bamse’ is a highly hopped and dry hopped imperial pilsner with a light body and lovely crispyness from the lager yeast.
A Danish pilsner is typically characterized by an alcohol content of 4,6% vol., piss-yellow colour and a sexless, slightly bitter taste. But it doesn’t have to be like this…! Draft Bear is Mikkellers interpretation of a ’pilsner’, heavyweight-style. With its powerful hop notes, high alcohol content and lovely golden appearance, the only reference to the pilsner style is the clean taste of the lager yeast.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pils, carapils and amber), light candy sugar, hops (amarillo and cascade) and lager yeast.

Kauge (1928) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle at Puu in Tallinn. Orange with steady creamy white head. Sweet, herbal, too much honey hints (perhaps from the mix of hops and sugar?). Floral. Hay. Soft on the palate, soft carbonation. Somewhat grainy on the palate. In a way nice.

Sweetness. Flowery, fruity. Bit tart and fruity finish. Quite agressive maltiness. Honey-like hints. Rather medium bodied, medium carbonated brew. Descent beer.

mateuszk (2670) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Draught. Hazy orange with white head. Aroma is fruity with passion fruit, orange and some peach, very juicy and fresh. In taste similar with more lychee, medium sweet with moderate bitterness just to counter the sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Very tasty and drinkable.

MrHangover (4439) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear amber beer with a nice big white head on top. Aroma is very malty, a touch of booze, light grapefruit. Flavor is bittersweet, hoppy and boozy, like a sweeter DIPA. Carbonation is medium, overall quite sweet and malty. Decent pils, long sweet finish. Nice.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 Bottle from SlackerMads (euro local swap), many thanks! Pours hazy orange with a white head. Fruity aroma with peach, passion fruit, orange. Taste follows with pear drops, lychee and a light maltiness. Medium sweet, light bitterness, slowly increasing to a firm bitterness in the finish. Almost creamy texture, lively carbonation. Nice and clean, deceivingly easy drinker.
