Bottle, from Vinmonopolet. Nice smell of hops. Splednid dry and refreshing pils - what the Germans can do when they put their mind to it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught Creamy, white body with a nice lace. Clear, golden body. Faint aroma of sweet hops. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter initial flavour. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Lightly bodied. Lively carbonation. I thought this was very well balanced. This has to be one of the best pilseners I’ve tasted so far due to te the presence of the hoppy freshness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty average Pils. Pale golden, small white head. Thin mouth. Its strongest aspect was a good bitter taste and a long bitter finish. Not terrible, but not special. I’d rather have a Victory Prima or, of course, a Pilsner Urquel.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2006 Skunky aroma (undoubtedly a result of the green bottle) is overwhelming. Capped by a slight, quickly receding, white head this brew is light and tightly carbonated with a lingering bitter finish that sits comfortably on the back of the tongue. Average pils. I wish I had a fresh bottle to compare.

On tap at the Frankfurt Xmas Pub, located in Birmingham during December. Straight down the line Pils, with a big dry finish. Lacks a little sweetness, but is certainly refreshing. Nice crisp, hoppy stuff.
