3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen
Cloudy blond color with large compact head. There is a mild but nice aroma of quality hops, grassy in the front and more citrusy later. Dry mouthfeel, smooth, with some hay and strong bitterness, some vegetables character, although it ends with light coriander and fruits.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a 5oz English tulip. The aromas are fairly faint, nothing really jumps out, but I could find a light floral note, a light grainy note, and a touch of a white grape-like sweetness and a seltzer-like dryness on the nose. It pours a slightly hazy pale straw color (almost on the whiter side of things). A tight, micro-bubble white head recedes quickly to just a moderate-thin ring around the glass that leaves a light ring lacing. The taste is a light / medium-light bitter, with a light touch of sweetness. And active and prickly carbonation combines with the medium light body and thin texture for a very easy drinker. The finish is dry with some pine and citrus. The aftertaste is mostly clean with a mellow, light citrus.

Cool crisp refreshing. Could be better but it could also be worse. I'd like to try the Gin Barrel Aged version.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Note: I had a cold while rating this so perception of aroma may be skewed or less sensitive than usual.)
Pours slightly hazy yellow gold with frothy white head that disappears quickly. Lots of pretty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy grain. Taste is surprisingly bitter. I usually expect a bit more sweetness in a Pilsner. More bitterness straight through the finish. Can’t really taste the hops; probably due to cold. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Overall ok, but really too bitter for a Pilsner.
