Clear golden colored, thick white head. The aroma and flavour is Saaz hoppy on a faint but pleasant malty base. Flavor light sweet, moderate bitter, long duration. Light to medium body, watery, lively carbonated.

Gylden øl fået hos naboen.
Meget mere smag en typisk pilsner. Der er tydeligvis brugt mere og bedre humle end hvad man er vandt til.
Rigtig god pilsner

Hazy golden with small, but thick white head. Flowery and hoppy aroma. Taste is not particularly malty, spritzy mouthfeel, and a lot of Saaz bitterness.

This is what the much-abused pilsner should be all about: fantastic, rich and cloudy golden with a thick layer of foam that refuses to budge an inch, crisp and about as full-bodied as you can get for the style. Not much in the vein of nose in this one, but all the taste and hoppiness you could hope for in a traditionally crafted pils. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden colour with white head long lasting.
Nose with grassy aromas and some hops.
Good flavor with a good bitterness.
My rating is maybe coloured by the fact that I ´m not especially fond of pilsener, but it´s the best pilsner I have tasted.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Bottle from Engelsmann, best before Aug 19, 2006. Consumed on 5/31/06.
Unfiltered, very much so, with a deep, deep, rich honey-gold with strong copper tints. Head white, fairly dense and lasting, with a fair amount of lacing.
Nose is full of nutty yeast, which, though I have tried to leave as much behind as possible, still adds a light blanding note to the aroma. The saaz hops are still unmistakeable, however, and though without the strength of styrian goldings, they provide a very dainty, delicate, fresh floral note, with light lavendar and rose petal. Some very delicate leafiness keeps things dry, as bits of honey land softly on the back of the nose. Fluffy, aerated angel food cake gives light substance. Certainly no alcohol or brewing flaws detected.
The flavor is considerably stronger than the nose. The hops are still very delicate, with lavendar, vanilla blossoms, rose petals and very light leafiness. Bitterness sits on the tongue and slowly surges up, tickling the tongue and balancing the dry, highly attenuated pils malts. Though the attenuation is high, as the style dictates, the unfiltered nature provides a sumptuous mouthfeel, lightly doughy and providing depth for the hop bitterness. Light lemon notes emerge on the finish, with definite hop oil-like notes that stick to the sides of the mouth as the bitterness pleasantly recedes, like capsaicin oils receding and creating that hot sauce "glow". Just flawlessly done, with not a touch of apple, vanillin, corn, etc... and for that I’m truly impressed. There are very few bottled pilsners of this light strength that can boast that. Carbonation is tight, engaging, but still not too heavy. Alcohol is not apparent. Wow, how is this rated so low? Everyone needs to retry this, as it is certainly not filtered any longer. Thank you so much Martin!

Best before date 8/19/06. Pours a hazy golden color with a white fluffy head that receedes to a small fluffy white head. Nose is yeasty with some honey notes and light hops. A sticky, heavy malt note is found as the glass warms. Palate is nice and full with a syrupy texture to it and a sticky bitter finish. Flavors of honey and sticky malt, light yeast and grass notes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark yellow colour with a medium mostly lasting head. Definently a good pilsener, but still too expensive.
