Draught @ HBF 2015
Pours orange with a smooth head. Aroma of juicy fruits, butter, caramely malts, toffee and citrus. Taste is malty sweet and buttery with loads of toffee, citrus, caramel and pine. Finish is sweetish, malty, crisp and bitter with loads of pine, and toffee. A bit unbalanced and sweet.

not as aromatic as some IPLs but perhaps a big aged now. Lupulin burning bitterness and pithy orange but little else. a bit hot.

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)

Amarela dourada com nuances de laranja, boa carbonatação, levemente turva. Aroma bastante herbal de lúpulos, pão, casca de pão. Sabor idem mas com um pouco de floral também. Corpo baixo, amargor médio-baixo, boa carbonatação. Aftertaste refrescante, com amargor persistente.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized creamy white head which leaves nice lace. Aroma is floral, grassy, bready and some slight berries as well as mild earthy notes. Flavour is very similar, but with a nice fresh and crisp take to it. Quite a pleasant Pilsener.
