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.

Tap in some bar in Antwerp. Taste is a little too sweet and contains something (canít say what) annoying. Certainly not my favorite pils,but there are worse.

thirstyrabbit (1251) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Bottle. Pale golden body, medium head. Aroma has some cabbage-like vegetal hints. Okay carbonation and mouthfeel. Sweet malty and bready taste. Slightly above average hoppiness for a pale lager but I donít see this as a pilsner. Itís drinkable but lacks that hoppy crispness.

Bosbouw (1484) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Heldere citroengele kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt pils-achtig, weinig. Smaakt pils-achtig. Weinig bijzonders.

Nejhleader (1284) - 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 (1361) - 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!

hair-old (191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2014
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 (3207) - 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.
