2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle traded with Bierkoning, thank you! Straw-golden with a short-lived head. Aroma is bready-malty with some honey-floral notes. I sense very little hops. Taste is on the other hand dominated by hops. It is very bitter, although the bitterness, while pleasant in itself, fails to carry any significant aroma. It almost completely smacks down this beer’s maltiness failing to provide anything in return. Pretty much aromaless brew with a nice bitterness. Disappointing.

(Bottled) Easy to sink , light and breezy . It is perhaps one of the things i crave most in beer , good Pils. My Pilseners by preferance are dryier than this , with the sweet bready malts being an undercurant , they’ve got it on reverse here ,but its pleasant drinking .

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass.
The beer has a clear golden color and a bitter taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a malty touch. This beer smells malty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a large, foamy and lacy head. Quite strong, maybe even slightly stingy aroma of grassy hops, birch leaves, some citrus. Flavor is grassy-hoppy and birchy-citrusy with quite nice, pale-malty body and a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with fizzy carbonation, quite refreshing. A sharp, but nicely grassy and well-made, unfiltered pilsener with a solid malty body. Probably quite fresh, too, as the BBE was 2010 or 2011.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Quite hazy greenish yellow with a small white head leaving lace. Grassy, and VERY malty nose, as the grist being shoveled into the mashtun. Again very malty taste, with a fine spicey surrounding, and something lemony. Very watery MF, but undeniably refreshing, thanks to the lemony quality. Better than usual housebrew Pilsnere, but a tad too malt-oriented.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A yellow beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy primarily giving it notes of straw. The flavor is sweet and very malty combined with notes of straw, leading to a dry end. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky.
