In 2011, 796 beers were entered for the Brewing Industry International Awards 2011, which were held in England. A renowned jury, consisting of experts from the brewing world, awarded ESTAMINET Premium Pils the highest score in the ĎLagerí category. This gold medal, which is seen as an ĎOscarí within the beer world, is an important recognition and victory for PALM Breweries. The awards and medals will be presented during a gala event on 12 April at the prestigious Guildhall in London. ESTAMINET owes its premium quality (5.2% vol/alc) to the selection of the best natural ingredients: soft water, 100% high quality summer barley, a distinctive yeast and very precious Saaz hops. Slow, traditional bottom fermentation, a brewing process based on an original recipe and maturation for a full six weeks make ESTAMINET a true Belgian Premium Pils.

Pilsner nei ranghi, chiara con schiuma di media persistenza, erbacea al naso, leggero aroma di malto, in bocca non migliora, finale amaro. corpo leggero, ben carbonata. che dire, bevuta da assetato mi ha anche ritemprato, ma rimane piuttosto anonima

Bosbouw (1436) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Heldere citroengele kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt pils-achtig, weinig. Smaakt pils-achtig. Weinig bijzonders.

Nejhleader (1277) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2014
has a nice grass, sweet malt aroma. Good carbonation, taste is a fairly smooth bodies light grassy malt taste. Better then the average pils, but I donít know who is throwing gold medals at this.

suurjuust (1292) - ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2014
Pale golden beer, small to medium white head. Nose has metallic notes with malts and grain. Flavor is malt and a vague graininess, weak hops in the finish. Very neutral and bland. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

This states right on the bottle that it is an ale and I am rating it as such. A unique class of its own since I know of no other brewer that has used Saaz hops in an ale.I was not expecting much after the pour but this brew is oddly very refreshing for an ale.Head perfectly clings to the glass.Colour of murrifat macrobrews.Brewed since 1747.

Marduk (3089) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 2, 2014
250ml bottle. Pale yellow color. Small size, white head, stays. Aftershave, sweat, corn, faint acetone and fart in aroma. Perfume, malty, sweet taste. Watery body.

Corn aroma and its bad. Taste is a bit sweet but fresh, almost like shandy. Aftertaste is like someone shat in your mouth.

FatPhil (9723) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2014
250ml bottle (Wines of Galilee,Tallinn)
Even from a distance, after pouring, itís a stinky aroma, or is that my BO? Close up itís pure corny pisswater. Slightly perfumey taste, gentle malts. Incredibly pale, scarily so. Thin palate. Finish has a fair amount of bitter hops, quite high for a pale lager. Lasts for a while. Aroma was the real disappointment, but it improved.

Draft. Just a regular pilsner. Golden color, white head. Taste of grainy malt and some bitter hops. Decent.

0,25L bottle. Pours clear yellow with white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is malt, some grains, some alcohol. Flavor is sweet, malt, some bitterness. Overall: very bland.
