3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Cabezon (a restaurant in my neighborhood). Colour... very pale gold with a thick head. Nose... floral with jasmine and laurel. Palate... quite frothy with bits of noble hops and a light, crisp lemony character. Whereas this may not be the pils most people expect (a north German style), it is quite refreshing and would do well on a summer’s eve whilst dining out of doors.

Pale straw coloured pour. The nose is softly bitter. A touch of diacetyl that could be done without. Pretty nice hoppiness though. Noble spicy hoppiness and a touch of spiciness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not one of my favorite pilsners but anything to steal thunder from the industrial is a major improvement. Pours a nice yellow. A bit sparkly. Has some of the pils metallic notes that my tastebuds pick up at the faintest of levels. OK.
