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°

Pyobon (1312) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2012
(bottle) Clear straw coloured with big white head. Pleasant and intriguing aroma; citrus dominates but there is grass and spice plus some subtle barnyard notes. Medium body, well carbonated. Lovely refreshing flavour with subtle interesting things going on - tangy and spicey, but there is some really interesting character I think from the yeast. There’s a decent bitter finish. Overall I really enjoyed this (I see that mine will be the highest rating so far). It was a very nice refreshing beer with some interesting subtle character. (It was also a few months past its nominal best before date).

Emeister84 (2161) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Aromas are very floral, with notes of nectarine and citrus fruit. Golden with a moderately fading, white head. Dry, tart, and bitter. Light-medium body with fizzy carbonation, and a clean, cider-like finish.

JorisPPattyn (9505) - 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.

thewolf (12131) - 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!

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2009
750ml bottle from Enoteca Bonatti, Firenze, sampled at The Penguin. Peachy murk with a white head dissipating to a halo, then nothing. Delicious fresh herbal hop and pale malt aroma immediately evocative of Munchen and beyond, with notes of fresh cut grass, lemon and lime, wine gums, honey and yep, a splash of Spumante. All that in the mouth with added soapy citrus, bags of shrubby hop, flowers, honey, lingering bread and biscuit.Totally fresh and harmonious, not a note out of place. Only disappointing thing is that slightly pondwatery conditioning and lack of sparkle, odd considering the Spumante yeast used. Still, a fitting birthday toast and a beer that with a little tweaking could be world class.

On tap, at Artebirra 2003, Italian Craft Beer festival in Milan. Yellow to light golden colour, light hazyness, white persistant foam. Hoppy and moderate malty aroma (fruity, weak citrussy), moderate bitter flavor. Medium body, very clean, easy pils.
