Hazy, pale golden colour with a foamy white medium-sized, lacing head. Slightly dustyand sweet fruity aroma with lemon zest and distinctive coriander notes. Slightly sweet and spicy bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a crispy mouthfeel. Initially malty, fruit-accented taste with a touch of honey; quite strong coriander-spicy but unfortunately slim and slightly hoppy finish

Light orange. 2 finger sticky white head. 375ML bottle I picked up today at the brewery. Aroma is weak. maybe hay and grass and lemon. I’m not a fan of the taste though. has an old hops taste, some burnt malts, not refreshing. it does have a good yeast profile but that’s all.

*Exceptional* lager. Pilsner? No. Lager? Eff-yeah. FTW. Strong, flavorful malty notes. Goes done smooth. Highly recommended.

thegreenrooster (3399) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pour is a ugly looking murky yellow greenish with a large white head. Aroma is typical lager grainy malt with a crisp cracker. Flavor is dry malt a light hopping but some wet paper bag is there as well. Fancy bottle but nothing special.

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Bohemian style Pilsener, a style seldomly seen in Belgium. Clear, deep golden blonde, stable, snow white head; malt sweetish character, a bit bready, with sharp carbonation and noble, grassy, aromatic hop bitterness in the finish. Very decent - in fact, one of the better Belgian lagers I had so far, though admittedly that doesn’t usually mean a whole lot.

RexTalionis (2862) - FINLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden in color with an off-white head. Grainy notes at first, hints of citrus and damp cellar in aroma. Bitter grassyness, summer meadow and bready notes in taste.

aleigator (340) - GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Has a decent, froth head, with a pale golden, slightly cloudy color. Nose is defined by a moldy funkiness with typical lager qualities, wooden, toasty malts with bitter hops and hints of straw. Has an enjoyable, gentle bitterness to it, which goes well along with straw, white bread malts and a funky, brett defined leather note. Hops interact in an interesting fashion with the earthy malts, on which the funkiness settles. Unfortunately those different flavors don’t seem to come together too well until the very finish, in which rich, earthy malts become the most recognizable flavor. Ends a little watery, with a very late hops impact, which tastes a bit ankward because of the added acidity.

sic1314 (4249) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2014
Poured light amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and light spice. Light to medium body, flavour of the aroma, light barnyard, quite gassy.
