Catch up rating. Pours pale gold with a an airy short-lived head. The aroma is grass and some crackers. The taste is a pleasant mix of herbal, earthy noble hops and doughy pale malts. The bitterness is moderate but lasts a long while in the finish. The mouthfeel is light and prickly with carbonation, a little too much fizz here.This is a nice pilsner. Nothing particularly striking, but good balance and a competent hop profile. Worth trying.

Clear golden body, white quickly disappearing head. Rather soft carbonation. Aroma is malty and sweetish but the taste has pleasant bitterness; hoppy flavors of grass and herbs. (0, 33l bottle at the TXL Airport lounge.)

Raistlin (185) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
This bee has golden colour and pretty big white head. However, head disappears quickly, which was a bit of a disappointment. It has lighter taste with just bit of bitterness at the end. Its a nice sipping beer that does not overwhelm with hops. Not bad for right occasions.
