Wow! I was impressed by this one! Great flavor, good hoppiness without it being overpowering, and nice light texture. Now THIS is what a lighter pilsener should be like!

One of the best pilseners I have tasted in a long time, little in bitterness but strong in carbon dioxide. Sweet taste and taste for more. Nice after bite.

Bottle. Golden-yellow colored with some orange. Clear and sparkling with a white frothy head. Hoppy smell, fruity with floral notes, hints of grapes and some bready malts. Pleasantly medium bitter balanced by light sweetness. Flavor is fruity and floral as well. Body is light to medium with high carbonation. Well balanced and harmonic in aroma and taste with a nice bitter finish and pleasantly light but long aftertaste.

Pours a golden color with a white head. A very refreshing beer with a subtle biscuit flavor.

A nice svetly that quenches your thirst and tastes good. Quite simple really. Minimal hop character, it’s mostly bready and grassy. Light body, thin and fizzy with a somewhat abrupt dry hoppy finish. Not the best,but certainly not bad.

Grisza77 (100) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 8, 2015
Złote, klarowne piwo o średnio obfitej pianie, która szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat słodowo-ziołowy, ale trochę za mało intensywny. W smaku słód i wyczuwalna chmielowość, ale wszystko to na zdecydowanie za niskim poziomie jak dla mnie. Goryczka niska, ale na języku pozostaje po przełknięciu przyjemne szczypanie. Ogólnie tragedii nie ma, ale spodziewałem się czegoś bardziej chmielowego, a jest to tylko jeden poziom wyżej niż przeciętny koncerniak.

Panzerfaust (613) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUL 8, 2015
Drank on the train from Berlin to Dresden Pours clear golden with a white fizzy head. Classica aroma of a Czech Pilsner, with Saaz hops dominating. Mild lemongrass and spicy notes. Taste is medium bitter well balanced with cereally hints. Very clean, distinctive tasting beer. Highly refreshing, straight-forward and solid Pilsner.

Tuoksun perusteella ei melkein huomaisi, että lasissa on mitään. Vaahtoa muodostui hieman ja väri on kauniin vaalean kullanruskea. Maussa on hitunen hunajaa ja maltaisuutta. Hiilihappoisuus on juuri sopivan pehmeää ja jotain rapeutta löytyy. Ei tästä juuri muuta sanottavaa, suoraviivainen eikä juurikaan mieleenpainuva olut.

Smelled of skunk and light malt. Body is very crisp and dry. It has a mild lingering bitterness.
