COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Killer Cucumber Ale is a light summer ale "dry hopped" with organic cucumbers in the fermentor, and again in the conditioning vessel. Bready malt along with citrusy and earth hops in the background supports the refreshing cucumber nose and palate. Belgian yeast rounds out the profile with a hint of apricot and black pepper, while high carbonation and medium-light body add a thirst-quenching finish.
Ingredients: water, barley malt (Golden Promise, Vienna), wheat malt, organic cucumbers, hops (Cascade, Fuggles), Belgian yeast.

Süßlich, herber Antrunk. Gurke kommt im Aroma deutlich zur Geltung und arrangiert gut mit den bitteren, malzigen Anteilen. Leicht fruchtig, aber die Gurkenaromen kommen eher schwer als spritzig daher. Insgesamt ein gutes Experimentbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nonshaugen (694) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2018
33 cl bottle, BB 07/05/2018. Clear, a bit chill haze, amber, thick white head, medium-high carbonation. Aroma is quite floral, backed up by a malty, sweet bready smell. Nice fruity, floral and spicy flavours up front, cucumber, bread and yeasty esters at the back. Nicely carbonated, pushes the beer around in your mouth, but then all the spices remains, and stay there for way too long, and you realise you want a Lager to wash the sticky spice cake away.

Bamsen78 (5668) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2018
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of cucumber water enriched with yeast extract. Weird flavour of cucumber water and, yes, estery notes, enhanced by bitter, hoppy hints. Bitterish and estery aftertaste. Well, not a killer but just as undesirable as one. Reminds me of the gorgeous Gurkenradler.

MiP (16083) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2018
Bottle, 4.7%. Cucumber aroma. Hazy yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour has some cucumber. A fairly distinct flavour in spite of cucumber's tastelessness. Low bitterness. Not a Gurkenradler, but still pretty decent.

labeerinthum (1258) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 30, 2018
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso rintraccia floreale e cetriolo. L'intensità olfattiva è normale e la continuità olfattiva è sufficiente. Il manto superiore resiste poco. La grandezza delle bollicine è a grana medio-fine. La carbonazione è bassa. Il liquido è di consistenza limpida. Bollicine fini costituiscono la forma della frizzantezza. La carbonazione è nella norma. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è rotondo. Il dolce è medio a pareggiare l'amaro medio. L'intensità gustativa è normale e si prolunga in modo sufficiente. Il finale è secco e semplice. Sulla lingua arrivano sentori di agrumato, floreale e cetriolo.
