3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gloudy dark orangy yellow, medium white head. Big yeast, bread, grassy, cooked vegetables, funky, mushrooms, yoghurt, sour cream, lemon. OK taste, not too sweet and with a nice bitter finish, but some sour notes I don’t like too much. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a bit too funky for me, but interesting and not unpleasant.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle and a careful pour is necessary. Hay amber with a thin, disappearing, white, non-lacy head. Lots of malt and caramel on the nose unlike any pils I’ve ever had. Toasted malt, grain and grass. Lots of sweetness. Medium oily frothy body with soft carbonation. Tastes of mild sweet malt with a medium bitter lasting finish. A clear fruity touch is noticeable and the overall presentation is kept mild by the yeast flavour. Leaves the mouth dry and sort of grassy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange hazy body with a decent yellow-ish creamy head. Smells happy and citrus, while it’s bitter and fruity in the mouth, with a bitter aftertaste. Could be a touch more sweet to balance better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the De Molen Beershop. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is very malty initially but died away fairly quickly. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with some malt, citrus fruit and a little yeast and liqourice on the palate and into the finish. If I had to drink a Pilsener, this would be one of the Pilsener’s i’d choose.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 18/07/2011. Pours hazy golden in colour, fizzy head subsides quickly. Sweet malt aromas and bready yeast in smell, little hops to the nose. more sweet malt on the tounge, light hop bitterness finishing stronger after swallowing. Not bad, probably coped a beating on the way over to oz. will try again.... next time.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour clear golden, with a small fizzy whte head.
Aroma of hay, citrus, old hops and slight grass. - this is to me actually a quite good pils.
The taste has some faint sweet notes upfront, with some bitterness to it.
Somewhat watery body, with a rather fizzy carbonation.

Golden colour. White, very long-lasting head which leaves a permanent head. Fresh aroma (citrus and honey). Bittersweet, hoppy. Medium carbonation. Not like other pilsners. Very good and easy to drink.
