Bottled on 11/04/13. Caramel and grass aroma, pours a good deep gold colour. Sherry notes and grapes on the tongue, thick and semi sweet, with a long chewy finish. Hops seem to be fairly well masked, not very pilsner-esque.

RW80 (349) - NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: hazy golden orange, with a steady but bubly of white head, leaves some lacing. Aroma: flowery hops,. cookies and a bit of bread Taste: Mildsweet start, grass, some caramel and hops before it finishes Aftertaste is caramel with a moderate bitterness to it. Not really a Pilsner more off a bitter for me.

txolo (154) - SPAIN - JAN 10, 2014
Aroma lejano a lavanda y frutas por definir, "funky", o sea, un poco apestosa, algo de uva en boca, se siente el amargor, conserva muy bien la espuma, deja regusto parecido a la mistela, muy duradero y alcohólico

Quack-Duck (7523) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
bottle. Clear, perhaps slightly hazy golden colour, small white head. Reisny hop aroma. Full-bodied, solid sweet malty base with resiny-grassy hops. Bitter-sweet overall character. Good one, as expected.

Douberd (1719) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2013
330 ml bottle at home, poured into a stemmed glass. ABV 6.2% Deep golden orange colour on the body, one finger of snow white head with good retention. Light lacing left around the glass and a thin layer of foam on the beer’s surface. Light activity in the glass. Aroma of noble hops, cookies, toffee. Little bit of bread. Taste begins with mild sweetness, continues with grass, little hops, little toffee. Moderate bitterness on the aftertaste, along with some caramel. Medium body, average carbonation. Oily palate. Overall a good one, as far as taste and aroma are concerned, it reminded me more of an english bitter than a pilsner.
