UPDATED: FEB 1, 2010 0,5 l bottle.
Classic lager appearance with a golden body and a medium, delicious, fine and froathy white head that diminishes slowly with laces on the glass. Fine bready malt based sourish aroma, flowery hops. Smooth mouthfeel, rich body. Malt based flavor with mild carbonation, fine character of bottom-fermentation, nice flowery hop flavor. Complex palate, fine hoppy-malty aftertaste. One of the best lager what i’ve ever tasted!

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2013
The beer in the glass is strong golden yellow, slightly cloudy, with a high, soapy head. It smells yeasty and sweet, subtly tart, with a lot of aroma hops, grain and bread. Starts mild malty, very bready and grainy, with plenty of aroma hops in the background. The middle part shows some sweet yeast, coupled with a lot of grain, bread and aroma hops. Goes into a hoppy-bitter finish, coupled with some caramel and toffee.

NordicV (1943) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2016
Gyllengul öl med ett vitt skum. En enkel tjeckisk pilsner som inte sticker ut. Viss metallisk känsla i smaken som drar ner betyget nĺgot.
