3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 330ml bottle on 14/5/2015. Pours a clearish light golden with a small head. The aroma is grassy with some light fruitiness. Taste wise, it features biscuity and bready malt, citrus (particularly lemon and some orange), and pretty big herbal hops kicking in late and lingering long. Full bodied with average carbonation. Not a typical pils but rather tasty and unusually bitter.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cerveja alaranjada, turva, espuma branca cremosa e duradoura. Aroma de maltes pronunciados, levemente caramelizada., lupulo perceptivel no paladar médio amargo. Paladar muito bem balanceado, com amargor na medida certa. Aftertaste fica um pouco mais amargo e mantém sua presença por um tempo moderado. Nunca esperaria tanta qualidade e presença vindo de uma pilsen.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bubbly hazy yellow, soapy foam. Aroma is immediately floral hoppy, grassy and good. taste is fruity, orange and hoppy. Not crisp like a typical pilsener, but softer and more rounded. Still good though, even without the typical scrape I was expecting. Just dandy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy pale gold with one finger of loose white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is herbal, grassy, pale bready malt, some citrus. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Light to medium body, prickly to moderate carbonation, off-dry and crisp finish. (4/5)
A non-traditional but pleasant pils. Definitely hoppier than a true pilsener, and with a heavier body - but those aren’t negatives as far as I’m concerned. I guess the truth is, I want every beer to taste like an IPA. This one tends to that flavouring, so i’s a win with me. (15/20)
