Kurtos (209) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow. Aroma. Passionfruit and sweet citrus. Taste. Mainly Tropical fruits with a slight piney bitterness. Overall. quite a light and refreshing beer, but still plenty of flavour.

Davros (3246) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2017
Nose shows herbal and spicy hops along with cardboard and sweet biscuity malt. Flavours include more spicy and herbal hops, light grassy notes, slight cardboard and an assertive bitterness. Not much to fill it out.

jmgreenuk (9746) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 3, 2017
Tap at the Royston Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is lager malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth, light fruit woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. As far as lagers go it’s fine and has some flavour. Thankfully it’s not gassy either.

GoufCustom (2080) - HONG KONG - FEB 20, 2017


330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Looks: Translucent light golden with a thin crust of yeast sediments; Explosive four finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 5 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant malt with can be smelt a foot away, with strong pineapple, peaches, jackfruits, bubblegum, honey, floral, sugar, spices, bread, Bel yeast, very light lemon and strong grass. Very nice!

Taste: Medium sweet Pils malt, with strong grapefruit zest, honey, thin pineapples, floral, sugar, strong spices, strong herbs, lemon, very strong bitter hops and strong sharp grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Fairly slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Good Pils maltyness in a solid background. Very hoppy from the get-go, with big herbal bitterness, citrus zest, sharp grass and spice. Flowery and sweet with light fruity ester thanks to Bel yeast. Refreshingly fantastic!

Hoppiness: Peaches, jackfruits, honey, floral, spices and strong grass in nose. Strong grapefruit zest, floral, strong spices, strong herbs, lemon, and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong and German Pils-like for a lasting, very high astringent sweet-bitter malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Spicy herbal and very bitter to mouth.

Comments: How about an India Pale Lager brewed with Belgian yeast and big-time hoppiness? This is it. Crazy as it sounds, this one has unmistakable aroma of fruity esters and bubble gums, a fat Pils maltyness, and a very sharp German Pils citrus hop bitterness. A top dog IPL from Down Under. Don’t miss it!

Dorata, limpida, schiuma compatta bianca. Aroma erbaceo, agrumato. Ottima al palato, buona nota tropicale. Estiva e fresca.

mcberko (18434) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
On tap at Moon Dog, pours a clear straw yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out crisp crackery malt and grassy notes. Flavour is quite pungent for a lager, with grassy notes, straw and biscuity malt. Clean and crisp. A much more interesting than ordinary lager. Decent.

CitrusP (66) - Newcastle, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2016
Has slowly become more refined over each iteration. This, while the least wild of three versions, is probably the one I enjoy most. Simple, refreshing and well balanced, grassy hops and a pleasant, lingering bitterness.

drjoeng (1358) - SINGAPORE - MAR 6, 2016
5.9%ABV. Double lager. Poured out cloudy gold (very foamy for some strange reason). 8ºSRM. Nose has some light phenol. Beery and sweet. Mouthfeel is sudsy with aggressive carbonation. There wheat flour, barley, and grains. Water biscuit. No sweetness. Nice medium bitter finish.

3.6
TimE (5999) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2016
Deep golden color. Frothy white head. Very clean fruity nose but not overly hoppy. Very clean dry mouth. Modest happiness. Pretty damn fine for a lager.

hawthorne00 (4035) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle. Gold with an inch plus of white head. Aroma of melons, mandarin, cracker bread, some mango. Sweet with firmish bready malt, then layers of tropical fruit and citrus. Dries out a little with citrus-tinged bitterness. Previous incarnations of this have been disappointing. This is good. Phew.
