3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2007 Sampler from bottle at <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/orland-par Orland Park, This must just now be appearing in America. A great pilsener malt color, to be sure. Like any imported light lager, I suspect a lot of the spicy hop oils have gone away. So I taste a balanced bitterness to the malts, but not much more. Guess it’s not fair to seek out good imported pilseners, but I’m still in the hunt.

Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense. ABV was 5%, like the brewery website says. Very nice Saazer aroma, flowers and honey, some fruit too. Reasonably well balanced flavour with a tolerable maltiness and decent hops which linger through the aftertaste.

Nice Pale Lager! Golden body with a creamy long lasting head. Perfect bitternes and sweet hopes. God aftertaste. I had this one in Croatia.

On tap at a beer garden in Prague. Bubbly and malty, pretty straightforward and plain, even cloying by the end.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 Drinkable. Gold with a sudsy head, the aroma is sweet grainy malt with a syggestion of hops. The flavor is malty, a bit too sweet for me, with a light floral hop finish.

Golden, slightly hazy. Sweet yeasty finish. Not bitter enough. Fruity flavour with hints of banana and prunes. Quite unpleasant in this kind of beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[At Křbenhavnske Řldage 2005] A golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malty, and the flavor is also sweet, but this time very malty, leading to a dry hoppy end. A very crisp fresh pilsener.

Deep gold with plenty of carbonation. The head is thin and white. Aroma is deep malt with some dirt and slight flowers. The taste is full with some flowers and sweet honey. Hints of bread. This is nice for the style. Best by March, 28 2005.
