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.

4.26/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a pale clear yellow orange with a light haze. Lots of drippy lacing and a frothy collar around the edges of the glass. Lasting skim on the surface.

Pungent and hoppy, getting a Nelson Sauvin sweet lemon tea note, a fistful of resiny greenery, vague sandalwood.

Resiny bitter hops, orange peel, citric and oily hop vibes. A vague fruity sweetness flashes quickly before segueing into a long resiny bitterness in the middle and lingering into the aftertaste. Some trace lager yeast character. Light bodied and super hoppy. Overall very drinkable considering the abv. Paired well with Rutger Hauer in Blind Fury.

4.06/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
