1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear, a bit pale golden body and a small white head. Really boring and weak aroma with some fruity and grainy notes. The flavor followes the same path, it’s not bad, just boring and weak with some fruity and grainy flavors. Thin and watery, with a strange note of something in the finish. Waste of ingredients.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle looks a little bit boring, but the beer in the glass not. Fine creamy foam, very constant. Sweet aroma, starts dry - finish not too dry, more sweet. Good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a big and dense foamy white head. Initially grassy hoppy, slightly sweet and acidic, getting a bit more, slightly grainy malt aroma when it warms. Bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a medium carbonation, soft mouthfeel. Herbal, slightly grassy hoppy taste on a soft, light-buttery malty base; dry, moderately bitter and herbal hoppy finish. Classic, decent Pilsener, that could be a bit more spritzy.
