Birra bionda a bassa fermentazione dalla schiuma fine, densa e persistente. All’olfatto risalta il malto e un gradevole odore di luppolo erbaceo. Al sapore si fanno notare il sentore di miele, una lieve acidità ed un amaro decisamente contenuto, molto al di sotto di una Pils tradizionale. Il corpo è ben sostenuto. Accompagna bene primi delicati, carni chiare, pesce, pizza e formaggi freschi. 12.5°

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle @ Italian tasting @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow with a medium creamy white head. A touch of lacing. Aroma is malty, maize, herbs and a little touch of wine gums. Rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is moderately sweet, herbal, light yeastiness and some hot peppers. A little melon and flowery hops. I’m surprised to read this as a Pilsner! Great!

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is earthy, malty and hoppy. Flavour is earth, malts and hops. Refreshing. Good quality pilsener.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle, chris_o shindig. Slightly hazy yellowy straw, thin white head. Nose is fusty, damp citrus. Lemon and grapefruit. Mouth is dusty, dull, damp hop. Palate is damp and mouldy. Pity about this one.

sinte (500) - Udine, ITALY - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle 0.33L. Golden body with a medium, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with a fair lacing. Herbla hoppy aroma with light malty and yeasty notes; notes of vegetables. Flavour is moderate-to-heavy bitter, with a light-to-moderate acidic note; at the beginning a light sweet note (honey) is also present, but disappears in the finish, while the bitter and acidic characters become stronger. Light and dry palate; lively carbonation and light astringent feeling in the finish. Pecuilar brew showing pils characters together with honey and yeasty notes.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle. Hazy gold/yellow colour. Light aroma, couldn’t pick up much, but it was innofensive. Mouthfeel is quite thin and the flavour shows some light wheaty malt and some grassyness, but in very light doses of each. Quite soft, with a short finish.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2006
LCRBM2. Sickly malt lager aroma. Really not good. Obviously I was missing something that other people at the meeting got on this beer. Maybe it had got a bit warm.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2006
Hazy yellow coloured with a small white head and little carbonation. Sweet herby (even a little vegetable like), grassy malty aroma, Smouth balanced taste. Smouth sweet, little bitter ending. Not bad.

bierkoning (12402) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2006
LCRBM2: toffee and citrus in the aroma. Light citric flavor with a touch of raspberry. Throughout this beer I can smell and taste a green vegetable character.

JorisPPattyn (9474) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2006
Fully hazy yellowish-cheesy colour with a small white head. Vegetable aroma, very much like artichoke, and grain. More vegetable in the taste, a tad like Basmati rice, grass and less artichoke. Medium bodied, quite slick. Outspoken bottom-fermenting character, but in the best way. Very good Italian Pilsener.

skortila (5284) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2006
[2nd Low Countries RateBeer meeting] Slightly skunky aroma with malts and vegetables.Hazy, orange coloured with a white head. Taste is bit yeasty with vegetables, bit sweet. Sticky. Forgettable.
