Swing-top bottle. Buttery barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Creamy, light butterscotch barley malt and light grass hops flavor Very nice beer - tasty. I like the high diacetyl level but others may not.

Bottled. Clear golden, airy head. Fruity metallic nose. Sweetish and quite bland with notes of paper, grass and lemon. Average bitterness. Dull pilsener without personality.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Re-rate:
Hazy green colour, big white head. By far more hop aromatics this time about and a more satisfying body.
Old rating. 6 3 4 1 8 Flasche, danke Günther. Leafy, grassy and citric bitterhop aroma. Pale golden, white creamy layer. Very light body, feels overattenuated, a hint sugary malts, lett hop bitterness than I expected after the aroma - all in somewhat watery experience.

bottle, thank you pivnizub! Clear strawy golden yellow, small to medium-size head. Medium-bodied, very hoppy with a dry mouthfeel and very nice hop flavours especially in the finish. I quite like it!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33cl swing top bottle) Almost clear, pale golden colour with a medium-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Light-sweet and slightly sour doughy malty nose with traces of cardboard and herbal, slightly grassy hops. Light-bitter flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. A bit papery, slightly perfumed malty taste; moderately bitter, slightly herbal hoppy finish with a light, but balancing malty sweetness. Mediocre Pils (15.03.08).
