3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No fizz, no fuss. As if you poured whisky and not beer. A very relaxing attitude. Almost no head. You get pure beer. It has a very refined, round taste. Fits into one’s throat very smoothly. You get a slight bitter taste afterwards, a rather plesant one, like that of Efes Pilsener.
This is a beer you would drink and enjoy like whisky and not beer. Not something you would drink more than 2 a day.
Something to drink as novelty, or with its stylish blue bottle, to impress one’s girlfriend. Otherwise, it may not justify itsef at three times the price of Heineken.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a typical pilsener look. The color is golden yellow and the beer is crystal clear. The beer pours a normal amount of rough white foam. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly. Almost no foam remains on top of the beer. The beer has a nice smell. The smell is hoppy, and bitter. The beer also has a tiny fruitiness in it. There is also a tiny bread aroma in the smell. The smell is not extremely special, but it is just very good. The taste is about the same as the smell. It is very bitter, in a good way. There is also a nice citrusy touch in the taste. There is also a delicious bitter and a little savory taste. The taste is also not very special, but just very very good. It beer in a very good way.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer Express. BB Apr 2016. Pours a clear pale yellow with a fast receding off-white head. The aroma is grainy sweet, floral and grassy, with slight hints of honey and toffee. Tastes sweet with a nice, rather strong balancing bitterness that stays in the mouth for quite some time. Lightish body with soft prickly carbonation. Pretty good!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dit bier heeft een redelijk krachtige hop-moutgeur. De smaak bestaat uit verschillende lagen bitter en tarwe. Redelijk puur bier.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Clear golden with small white head. Sweet grains, light honey and flowers, nice grassy notes with quite some German hops. There’s also a nice toasty maltiness going on here that’s quite nice. Under medium sweet and medium bitter. Thin bodied with crisp feel. Too bad this is so expensive and comes in a ridiculous bottle, as it would be nice to drink as regular Pilsner.
