3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
!ABV is 4.9% - cannot send it via corrections (syntax 501 error)!
Yellow-gold. Good head, collapsing. Quite grainy smell with grassy notes. Get some spicy hops as well. Background with some malt or even corn flakes. Strange - in the taste I get malt cookies with a smokey background. Quite delicate. Smokiness is definitely there. Ever so slightly grassy retronasal - plus the smokiness. Light bodied but not thin at all. Palate is completely tinted by the smokiness - grass (EEEUUHH - REAL grass that is!). This is rather special, and I like it - a genuine variant on the usual Pilsener style.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2008 Re-rateDusty bitterness and honeyish malt sweetness in the nose.
Amber, low carbonation, lowish head.
Grainy, somewhat fruity, dusty, smoked aftertaste. Medium bodied. Quick finish.
I suppose it does taste a bit like a rock :-)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Grainy, sweet sugary nose and a deep gold color with no head. Sweet malt taste up front with a little butteryness. No bitter. Thin-ish and a kinda sour taste. Nothing special here- just below average.
