djoeye (1207) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 Poured from a 50cl bottle bought at supermarket in Tromsř. Label design a little different, Bernard Lager 4,5%. Fluffy foam, white-vanilla colour, some drops of yellow, leaving. Leaves some patterns inside the glass. Nice and normal pilsner colour, low carbonated. Fruity flowerish to the nose. Hops and herbs and some malt, and the taste also contains a hint of mead wort (meadowsweet), an herb which was used in ancient times to aromate beer barrels. Nice and a little bitter pilsner taste, with also flowers and hints of meat wort. Palate with defined malts, and some rye bread, or that can be the hops. Lasts longer than average. That’s good. Chech pilsner, and unique. Bottle is also beautiful.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2007 Small frothy head with some lacing. Nicely fresh, grassy and hoppy nose. Beautiful crispy hoppy bitterness! Some fresh maltiness too, but the hoppiness is just beautiful. Close to the best german pilseners. Very nice.
