COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Intergalactical Imperial lager was brewed by Ben (Bridge Road Brewers, 50 Ford Street, Beechworth VIC 3747, Australia) & Urbain @ Struise, as a superb collaborative effort between both breweries and Simply Hops (Hop Pocket Lane, Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Kent, TN12 6DQ, UK). While Ben shared his Australian Lager brewing techniques, Simply Hops procured us with Fresh Galaxy hop flowers. Only 4 ingredients were used, Vleteren water, German pilsner malt, Australian Galaxy Hops and Weihenstephan yeast. This lager not only bottom fermented, but also matured on its own bed of C02 for six months.

Hard to rate. This beer is situation when Dubbel meets Czech pilsener. The brew is sweet with quite strong hoppy/bitter notes. Aroma is connection between organic-sugary-like sweetness with not really nice, dirty malty profile. In other words nose is somehow like straight, regular lager from supermarket. All in all not that bad, as other describe here - drinkable, very pilsener like with strong hoppy accents and potent sweetness.

Generalnie totalna porażka, słodka, ulepkowata, miodowa szmata. Trochę wstyd dla Strusi.

Bottle at Ratebeer Best. Pours a hazy yellow with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is strong grass, citrus, bready malt. Medium body, toasted malt, citrus, grass, boozy finish, good.

skortila (5509) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2017
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has grain, some peach/citrus, light toasted biscuit. Bit hazy, yellow coloured beer with a slight off-white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, sweetish, quite grainy, seems a little oxidized. BBF june 2018. Almost unreadable vintage indication (as the rest of the text on the label) 2015. If I would have seen this in store I would probably not have bought this. I mean lager aged for about 1,5 year. Anyway, bbf date suggests rating is fine.

Pours a clear amber body with a thin head. Warm and full nose with malty tones. Taste is nice and well balanced with malty tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2016 Mooi goudblond bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Aroma en smaken van perzik, witte druif, meloen, hop. Beetje bloemig, grassig. Licht alcoholisch met licht bittere afdronk. Zeker geen absolute topper maar een meer dan goed tussendoortje.
