3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a dense medium-sized foamy white head. Delicately sweet pale malty aroma with distinctive notes of citrus/lemon and woody also slightly herbal hops. Bitter flavour with a tinge of acidity, light but never flat bodied with a smooth carbonation. Dry hops character with fruity and woody elements, lingering into the dry, moderately bitter and fruity finish with a delicately grainy malty sweetness. Aromatic and very session-able. 02.XI.09

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl dark brown bottle, label as pictured.
Typical clear yellow golden colour with big, fluffy white head, good retention and plenty of lacing.
Surprisingly heavy-bodied for a blonde, with thick mouth feel. No beer for wimps, this.
Intense aroma of hops, with a fruity citrusy note. Why can’t Czech pilseners smell like that ... ?
Hops feature strongly on the palate, too. There’s a refreshing dry, citrusy note to this beer that almost makes it appear a cross between lager and IPA styles. Medium bitterness, increasing as you’re downing the beer - with a mildly bitter, but very dry, straw-like finish and after taste.
This should be a supremely sessionable pilsener, straightforward but characterful, and there’s no skunkiness here anywhere. Most agreeable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear, pale golden beer with a creamy, finger thick head. Citrusy, fruity hops with grapefruit does most of the aroma work, but some pale malts pushes from behind. It’s dry and grassy in the mouth, with citrusy hops on a malty background, producing a fine bitterness. Medium body and a bitter finsh. A nice and quenching beer that won’t raise eyebrows on a beer geek, but might surprise a lager guy. 090724

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big offwhite lasting head. Yellow body. Strong fruity floral resiny aroma, very harmonic and balanced. Dry-sweetish fruity floral resiny taste, again with impressive harmony and balance. Smooth, mild mouthfeel. Dry, almost bitter, aftertaste of the same with more emphasis on the resin. Some malts, straw, and grass, too. Excellent! Full of flavour and highly drinkable.
