Slightly hazy and yella. Lots of carbonation. Nice fresh wet hop aroma. Bitter piney hops. Shame they don’t just call it a pils, cause it really is a good one. Drying bitter finish with almost a rye maltiness to it. Long lasting. Probably the most bitter pils I’ve ever had, but not over the top. I preferred the old label, but at least the beer’s still good.

Flaske. Ufiltreret lys gykldengul i farven med en hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er gær og humle, og smagen er græs og humle. Man anvender her - ligesom Vends Herred Årgangsbryg - friskplukket humle.

330 ml. bottle. BBF 10/07/2017. Clear oily golden, little white bubbles, small. Noise is oily, vegetable, corn with big floral hop profile, herbal, grains. Taste is sweet cereal, grains, honey, very oily, big floral & weed bitterness, weeds, strong bitterness, caramel, cornflakes,… Lingering hop profile. Complimentary sparkling cereal & grains body. Dry. Interesting, you need to get a bit into it. The best way I can describe this one is by saying that it is like pale lager but good. No flaws, rich, big hops but still comparable elements just none of the flaws or usual awful notes. Very big hops. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Sterk in Amsterdam. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of light stone fruit and mild, pale malt. Med body, but the carbonation level helps with that. The flavor is spicy, fresh stone fruit with some pale malt which provides adequate support for the fairly strong hop load. Granted it’s bottom fermented, but it drinks like Belgian Ale. Calling it California Common would seem a bit odd, but it does suggest a spicy Anchor Steam. Good stuff in any case.

Tap at ‘t Arendsnest. Hazy orange gold color with a creamy white head. Light stone fruit aroma with a hint of citrus. Rather bitter and fruity flavor. Something of citrus rind. Finishes nicely bitter. Refreshing.

Pajiza, amarillenta turbia, con dos dedos de espuma. Aroma interesante, citrico principalmente. Se trata de una lager con doble lupulo y algo mas de alcohol para una pilsen. Sobre todo destaca lo primero, muy aromatica, citrica y frutal y amarga. Buena carbonatacion y agradable textura. Merece.

330ml Bottle in Café De Spuyt, Amsterdam (€5.50):
A very nice pilsner that went down quite nicely. The beer had an excellent balance with a solid fruity backing & plenty of flavours to keep you interested as well as remaining refreshing & easy to drink throughout. There was definitely more hops than I was expecting & the finish was quite a dry one but overall the beer was very good & well worth trying.
