Amazing how Emelisse is able to even make a pilsner interesting. It’s actually tasty, with some notes of grain and even hops.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blondish orange with a white, thick, lacy, lasting, sticky head. Smells of pale malt, straw, toasted caramel malt, with grassy hops. Medium to light frothy smooth oily body. Sweet cornish hay start with a fruity middle and a grassy bitter dry finish. The after taste is a bit grassy for me. Leaves the mouth dry. A nice easy pils but nothing amazing

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
#30 Emelisse. 33 cl. bottle split by 3. Obtained from Hopduvel. Slightly hazy amber / orange with a white head. Nose very light orange, mainly grains, quite grainy, bitter floral, light flowers and marmalade. Taste is sadly less than I was hoping for, bitter grains, lots of them, they don’t really work for me, slightly floral with a hint of grass, bitter hay, barn, light yeast,… Light & grainy. I am not converted to this one, let us say.
