Ótima cerveja,um exemplo de Lager bem feita.

jamaty (1914) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Dorada algo turbia (no pasteurizada) continuamente burbujeante. Excelente espuma blanca. Rico aroma lupulado a miel y flores. Super suave en la boca, con alta carbonatacion y un rico sabor que le dan los excelentes lúpulos, con un toque dulce de miel y un final amargo muy agradable. Muy rica pilsen. ABV 6,2%

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2015
Surprising take on the Pilsener style, an orange blonde, hazy example with medium thick, relatively loose, white head. Very floral and even citrussy hoppy in the nose, sweet caramelly malts, spicy notes, breadiness, subtle hints of peach and banana. Sweet and fruity onset especially for a lager, medium carbo, caramelly and slick, with a long and complex, perfumey hoppiness in the finish, pine resin, flowers and citrus abounding. If this is really a Pilsener, then it is the best, or at least the most original one I had so far, but it didn’t feel like one to me. Still: nice, pretty complex for the style and very enjoyable.

flying_pig (1431) - SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2014
330ml Bottle from Beers of Europe website (£2.29):
Fresh & lively initially with citrus & lemon plus subtle hops & spice. Freshly cut grass, floral notes & a touch of tart follow.
Golden amber with a thumb-sized, foamy white head & light lacing on the sides of the glass. Retention is good with only a slight reduction in size over the opening minutes.
Citrus with light tart & sourness from the nose. Fruity with some bitterness & grapefruit plus a few lager malts. There’s solid floral flavours from the nose too that add to the bitterness & fresh, grassy hops round things off.
Smooth with fine, medium strength carbonation & bitter finish. Easy to drink with a good balance, clean mouthfeel & a subtly dry finish.

A pretty good beer from de Molen, a nice twist on a Czech pilsner with more of a floral & lightly hopped taste. The beer wasn’t a stand out offering from the brewery but was definitely well worth trying.

freretoc (1720) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde, peu d’effervescence mais mousse assez onctueuse, le manque d ebulles (bière un peu vieille) ne faisait pas trop ressortir le goût mais il y avait un côté très floral et herbe fraichement coupé en bouche agréable.
