2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 300 ml, through a trade with ShivanDragon, thanks! Into a footed pilsner glass,ABV 5%
Golden yellow colour on the body, with a tall and very thick soapy head sitting on top and sitting there for quite long too! Lots of activity in the glass, countless little bubbles finding their way to the top. Heavy lacing left on the glass after the foam finally collapsed (but then, not entirely).
Aroma of malts, with some hay in it. Pretty standard.
Taste is of stale bread, hay and a metallic flavour that during the first sips seems to overpower everything but after a while it retreats.
Thin body, good carbonation, maybe a little bit low but seems suitable.
An okay pilsener with a rather impressive appearance to amke up for its small flaws.

My first Grunn beer from a package of 5. A not so special pilsner.
Not much to say about.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Thanks Edwin:
Medium to bigger sized pretty vast white head. It has a creamy topping with a medium sized airy foam underneath. Changes slowly into an bigger island lacing in the middle with a thin surrounding and than again thicker lacing on the edge and glass.
The first pour of the 75cl bottle leaves an almost clear darker yellow to darker golden colored beer. The second pour was hazy yellow and the third pour almost muddy yellow...
The aroma’s are a firm hand of grains, some pilsmalts and hints of herbs, grainy malts and a hint of glue...
The flavour has a strong grainy touch with bitter malts, herbal bitters and floral hop bitters. A firm bitterness that stays for the aftertaste and stays pretty strong in the aftertaste. As well as some malts, floral tones and grass.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Bit grainy and a hint of glue, but good bitter and floral and still easy drinkable.
Nothing (really) wrong with this pilsner.
