Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brought to life using a lager yeast strain, this beer is a sensory pounder. Ignoring the idea of a traditional lager balance, Guest Lager hops the line and intentionally scales the flavors tied to the ale spectrum. This 8% ABV style bender wrangles an impressive canon of flavor into one place. Did we mention hops? This particular lager hosts enough Nelson Sauvin & Falconer's Flight to soothe any weary traveler.

Poured from can into a Duvel by Parra chalice.

A: Pours a beautiful clear, golden straw color with over a finger of fluffy white head that eventually fades into a nice sheet at the top of the glass.

S: Lemon peel, resin-y pine, faint grapefruit, and that unmistakeable Half Acre maltiness.

T: Follows the nose, though much more pine presence than citrus. In fact, I'm not picking up much citrus at all. Crackery malt in the mid with a crisp, bitter, dry finish.

M: Medium bodied with ample levels of carbonation; quite refreshing.

O: A fantastic collaboration between Half Acre and Mikkeller, and probably one of the better non-staple beers Half Acre has churned out. Very solid for the warmer months, as this is quite refreshing.
