3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ De Hemel. Pours a little dark yellow-golden with a medium creamy white head. Aroma is weakly malty with a little hay, herbs and flowery hops. A little thin, but a relatively low carbonation fixes this problem well. Flavour is extremely well-balanced, not too sweet, nor too bitter. A very good pilsner.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Tap@DeHemel, Oct 08, 3.0: This time it did not have this nice refreshing and floral aroma and flavour. A pity. It was quite sweet and too malty for a pils now. No improved if you’d ask me. Tap@DeHemel, Dec 06, 3.7: Floral, herbal and very fresh aroma. Golden color, white firm head, good lace. Sweetish, lots of malts for a pils, floral, full. Really pils-like but much fuller, maltier and more floral. I’m not into pilsener but this one I like.

Very hoppy strange pilsener. Even in this one there is this typical Hemel-orangepeel taste. Makes it a more interesting interpretation of the style. very hoppy and reasonably wellbodied.
