4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Brewery tap, Birrificio Italiano, Lurago Marinone (CO), Italy. Wow what a pilsner .... Light unclear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, excellent lacing, fully lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, heavy hoppy, grass, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long long duration, and a very nice dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. THIS IS THE BEST TASTING PILSNER I HAVE TASTED - Well made Agostino. ;o)) (081107)

First batch of the season
The perfect aroma of noble hops, with a light mouthfeel, some crispy malt, and more hop, with a nice grassy presence. Clean.
Tonight, the best beer in the pub.
Thumbs up from my sister too!

Gold pilsner, beautiful head. Nice hop aroma. Dry, heavily hopped, bitter; fruity hop. Palate long, bitter, not so aromatic.

Tap East. Keg. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Nice citric hops - lemon and orange. Slighty Belgian yeast vibe here. Crisp finish, mild minerals.

Keg (Bir&Fud, Rome)
Hazy honey colour, small head. Massive hoppy aroma. Really grainy husky taste. Crisp palate. A touch buttery, but not off. A lovely pils, the hops big and bold, but very well balanced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Beautifully presented with huge white head, like whipped cream and a hopcone on top of it, over golden beer. The hopbell has to go - it prevents the extremely malty/toasted nose to be perceived. Strangely, I get a nose of Croque Monsieur ... Very malty (!yes!!) beer, very dry malt, and strangely enough, one gets the dryness of dry-hopping without the taste. Crisp finish, with honey, in the good sense of the word ’crisp’. Retronasal finally more hop flavours. Light to medium bodied, long fading flavours. Calling this a "surprise" is not doing this right. I’m sorry about the Croque, but it’s spot-on. I cannot for the love of God understand why the Tipopils, its base is really hoppy and refreshing, is finally better than this maltbomb, posing as hoppy...

On draught at the brewpub.
Light cloudy, yellow colour with big, creamy, steady head, topped with a hopcone. Looks yummy indeed. Great modern style pils aroma with wood, cedar and flowers from Hallertauer Mittelfrûh I belive. Dry, crips mouthfeel with flowers and citrus. Good hoppy, almost salty finish. Hops speak here, not the malts. Great beer!

Alla spina all’Isola della Birra a Milano, con tortellini panna e prosciutto; era un po’ che volevo assaggiare questa Extra Hop. Il Birrificio Italiano si conferma il re della pilsner italiana con questo prodotto che, se non riesce ad eguagliare le migliori Tipopils assaggiate, offre una seducente e delicata alternativa. L’abbinamento coi tortellini nzomm, ma volevo magnare quelli

Draught@BQ, Milan. Golden looks with a generous white head. Fragrant grassy hop and sweet malts in the nose with a hint of citrus. Crisp and clean flavour that followed suit and wasn’t as hoppy as the name implied. Dried out in the finish. Not my favourite style, but this is a way above average example.
