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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 3.9%. Crystal clear pale golden colour, big and lasting white head. Moderate but pleasant aroma of Styrian Goldings (+ Saazer and Hallertauer Hersbrücker) hops, citrussy and floral notes. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is more like a golden ale than the "pilsner" it claims to be - which is not a bad thing for me. Distinct hops throughout, balanced by just the right sweetness. Some fruit and a lovely bitterness, lasting through the long aftertaste. A nice little beer this one.
