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.

Tomada con Fombe y Angel77. Rubia alcoholica. Buena como todo lo struise. Mas normalita

Color dorado, translúcido de inicio, más turbio si se echa el último tercio, con algo de sedimento. Capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Huele floral, a grano, caramelo, especias. En boca hay dulzor, ligeros toques frutales, marcado carácter herbal y especiado, caramelo, miel y reminiscencias de frutos secos. Aparición de la levadura al final del trago junto con especias y un mínimo de amargor. Compleja e interesante, pero no me llega del todo. Peligrosa teniendo en cuenta su graduación.

CH-303 (2291) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUL 18, 2017

Aroma: Light fruits, light hops. Honey sweetness.

Flinke witte schuimkraag, mistig goudgeel. Honing, mout, alcohol, hop. Zoet, licht bitter. Volle body.

Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2017
Hazy yellow of color with a white head. An aroma of sweets, hops and yeast. And aroma Spice, yeast and Honey.

drpimento (3714) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Not bad even though it’s a little bit heavy and sweet for a Pilsner. Notwithstanding it’s a an "Imperial".

tommann (3851) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours hazy dark orange gold with a small head. Aroma is malty mango and minerals. Taste has sticky hop oils to start and a stony, minerally finish.

Grzesiek79 (4362) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Bottle 330ml from Piwo ma spora czape sniezno-bialej piany, dosc dlugo trwalej. Normalka jesli chodzi o browarnikow od Struise. Jasna barwa typowa dla lagera czy pilsnera, lekko wzmocnione alkoholem. Nie przepadam za tym stylem bo jest nijaki i dominuje alkohol, Tu choc lekko wyczuwalny nie przeszkadzal, ale nic specjalnego i oszalamiajacego sie nie doszukalem. Styl typowy dla alkoholikow ale ten nieco sie wyroznia jakosciowo.
