Very pleasant aroma with an extremely fruity flavour. Not exactly what I was expecting from a "pilsener". Its taste is very earthy and refreshing true to the "organic" labelling on the bottle.

Poured out a huge white head. Hazy golden colour with a floral and citrus hop aroma. Lovely texture more citrus flavours with a nice bitterness and maybe some soapy yeast characters. Excellent pilsener that also had a long finish. What more do you want? Cheers!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 My bottle started with a definite Hydrogen Sulphide nose. I will forgive this as it subsided quickly to reveal a fine saaz hop aroma. The head is creamy over a cloudy gold brew, which is expected as the description on the bottle says it is not filtered. The body and mouthfeel is surprising given the ABV, the flavour being quite mellow and full. The hop profile is great and it complements the malt very well. Dryness on the back palate makes this an entirely refreshing beer. It is organic but not quite orgasmic.
RE-RATE 28/10/04: No discernible H2S this time, just the delicious aroma of fresh saaz. All of the good things described above are given a big endorsement with the addition that this is just a delightful flavour and nose.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2003 Many many thanks to duff for letting me sample some out of his bottle. Beautiful pils, spicy and buttery and nice and cloudy with yeast. The best pilsener I've tried so far. Thinking of getting a case or two in time for the one day series against WI.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 crackery, grainy malt to begin with, joined by enormous round saaz flavour that devours all in its path and burps out pure alpha acid when it’s finished. rer8: this tastes more like an APA than a pilsener but i don’t care.

At AIBA 2003. Nice light gold colour with a big head. Lemon and orange fragrance which carries over into the taste. Has a little bit of spice in the finish, which I think was a distraction.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 An excellent pilsener, very fresh floral, hoppy and spicy, with some delicious pale malts, soft and round and entirely diggable.

The more times I try this, the more I like it. Probably one of the best pilseners anywhere in the world. Fantastic golden-yellow colour. Nice flowery hop aroma. Dry, crisp pils flavour with a nice bite. New Belgium’s Blue Paddle and Victory’s Prima Pils come to mind when drinking this beer.
