Bottle. 12.7 oz . (I think.) Picked up this little guy from Wine Works. Pour is quite impressive; massively cloudy straw yellow with a persistent white fluffy head. Aroma of sweet, buttery corn, floral hop resin, slight funk, lemon zest, and some tremendously nice pilsner malts. Medium bodied with a dry, yet soft and forgiving palate. Flavors of quite bitter hops, grapefruit, and some subtle oaky notes. Easy, smooth finish, with a small hop bite on the back of the tongue and a swell of pilsner malt warmth. This way better than the DFH version. Refined, restrained, and respectful. This one is dead center, and thus, dead on.

Not the best color Iíve ever seen. Smell is very good though and taste certainly 8 points. Palate good.

rosenbergh (7628) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2011
750 ml bottle. Batch #LS131. From Rome, Italy. HHOK IX.
Hazy golden colour with average sized frothy white head. Fruity hops, grapefruit, caramel, citrus, yeast and alcohol in delicious aroma. Caramel, sweet hops, fruit, grapefruit, pine, citrus and yeast in ridiculously tasty flavour. Warming alcohol. I want more of this.

Blairgus (2866) - California, USA - MAY 3, 2011
3 May 2011, bottle. pale yellow, faintly hazy, occasional bubbles, frothy white head. great nose! lots of hops. nose is passion fruit, some pink grapefruit, some astringent hop stems. thin body, fairly fizzy, slightly oily, crisp but not too much so. body is closer to lager than an ale but only just so. really nice! lemon gummy candy, passion fruit, some bitter grassy hops. if it wasnít for the body iíd swear this was a nice, hoppy pale ale. best lager iíve ever had!

[355ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Brilliantly clear gold. Thin lacing. Wonderful dry, fruity aroma. Flowery. Mild carbonation. Rich fruity taste of pineapples and other sweet fruit, combined with a little grassy hop. Sweet, full aftertaste. Orange syrup? Really very nice indeed [15042011]

RexTalionis (2786) - FINLAND - APR 5, 2011
Bottled at Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki. Poured orange brown in colour with white head. Fruity aroma, tropical fruits with yeasty aroma mostly. Flavour quite yeasty, a bit sweet and sticky. Also notes of tropical and dark fruits in flavour, very interesting combination. Smooth with a very pleasant sweetish aftertaste.

FatPhil (9817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2011
330ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
7 Wowsers, massively fruity aroma, extremely citrussy, and a bit piney.
4 Slightly hazy, and with huge head.
7 Massive fresh biting fruity hoppy taste. Some freezer ice joins the hops in the retronasals. Like Topopils, but even crisper. With more sediement in, it becomes more soapy, so I recommend keeping it clear and crisp. But donít think for one minute this is an easy quaffer, itís not, itís a very serious beer, and 330ml took 20 minutes or more.
4 Crisp palate, crisp carbonation. Lovely finish, sherbetty tingly fresh citrussy hops.
14 Stunning pils. Probably one of the top 5 pilseners Iíve ever tasted. So much character, and made you want, nay crave, more. No sign of 7.5% anywhere. I would drink this until I fell over.

On tap at Rustico. Reviewed from notes. Pours a light copper with a white head and some good, sticky lacing on the way down. Nose hits like an imperial pilsner with a bit more, as in addition to some grain and bread I got a bit of caramel as well, though it was fairly slight. Some European hops thrown in there as well. The taste balances everything quite well and it does taste like an amped up pilsner. Feel is light to medium with good carbonation. A very nice collaboration.
