2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is golden lager fare. Aroma is some hops and grass. Flavor is clean with some hop bitterness and a little malt but rather unimpressive. If you are looking for a complex hoppy pilsner keep on looking, if you are looking for something to refresh you on a hot day, then look no further. Basically a pretty good pilsner a step above Heineken/Becks/St.Pauli Girl. Other brewers of Bohemian and German Pilsners should put thier beer in brown bottles like these guys do!

This is what heineken wishes it was. bitter aroma. medium to light body awashed in bitterness and crispness. the finish was bitter, leaves a lot of hop flavors sticking to the tongue, kind of likechewing the pellets raw.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling clear, very pale yellow lager. Large, rocky, mostly lasting white head.
The nose is of honey, pepper and apricot.
Sweet, tart and citrusy up front, the flavor is balanced by moderately bitter hops on the backside. Hints of mint and honey.
Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, bitter finish. A good pils!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice aroma, soft malt and hops. No skunk, glad this is not in a green bottle. Must be a fresh bottle. Beautiful pale gold, with a nice white head. Flavor is pure hops and malt. No yeast character or esters, as expected from a world class lager. Generous Sazz hops, with a fading malt tail. Aftertaste says MORE!

Golden colour with a generous head, really lasting. The flavour is well balanced and quite malty, with an hoppy finish, with the right amount of bitterness. Really nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(5 liter mini-keg, ABV 4,9%). Moderate aroma of hay, light golden colour, enormous head when poured from the mini-keg - like the head of a weissbier. Clean crisp flavour, good bitterness makes this a better-than-average pilsener. The mini-keg is great for parties!
