3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2004 very bitter - but in an aley sorty of way - grapefruit and mandarin. crisp and dry and drinkable. nice shade of green in colour. but not the most amazing pils i've had. rer8: i make that the fifth bottle i've had - every time i come at it hoping to like it, but every time it's just a bit too thick and unrefined in mouthfeel, although nicely bitter. the hops are pinier than i like in a pils too.

Not normally a Pilsner drinker, I found this to be very tasty with good hop flavor. Not easy to find, but worth the effort.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 Rerate: i have to say, this beer is more than a regular pilsener. At first, I was not very convinced by this beer, but lately i drank this beer in a bar in Amsterdam and it could quite satisfy me. It has a very pleasant bitterness in it, also seen in the Pilsner Urquell.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy pale honey with white creamy large bubbled head. Lavender perfumed soap, hops and light fruit aroma. Medium body with a very strong bitter flavor especially at the start. A slightly sweeter middle, finish and aftertaste. Good if you like bitter, otherwise I think it hangs around too long and spoils what is otherwise a quite good beer.

re-rate, 06/21/02: finally I got the possibility to retry this beer ! cloudy orange colour, nice head and lace, very impressive hoppy aroma, herbal, full with a very long bitter finish - Oakes was right (hey ! He cannot always be wrong :-)): this IS a great beer
2000: Just for Oakes, I HAVE to retry this beer. I just cannot believe we are so far from each other on this one...
