The Pillars of Light greet you with their angelic glow. They welcome you and make you feel that all is right with the world. Amundsen have brewed an 8.4% lemon milkshake IPA and it’s good, real good! Pale straw coloured and hazy, this beer greets you with wave after wave of lemon, almost entering lemon sorbet territory. There’s a pinch of lactose and tropical fruits lingering in there as well, and to taste there’s plenty more lemony goodness, backed up by lactose, pineapple and vanilla, to be found. The malts are light and delicately balanced, with the beer finishing off lightly sour and acidic. A good beer for food, the Pillars of Light will illuminate all wherever you are!

Brewery Info

Started as a brewpub in Oslo by two Norwegian investors, Amundsen Brewery has undergone a period of incredible growth in the last 2 years. Trying one of their beers will make you understand why, they’re incredible! Geoffrey van Vuuren was hired very early on to run the brewpub and within a couple of years he was invited to co-own the brewery he had made so much his own. His dedication to quality has driven Amundsen to greater and greater heights. Focussing on fruity IPAs, sours and huge stouts, Amundsen are all about big and bold flavours and incredible beer! Try it, you won’t be disappointed!
