2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bb06/2016, ta idiosynkrasie for so broadly filling me in on the UK scene. Coarse grain husks in aroma, going on damp resinous grasses. Drinks with a grass/hay-forward bitterness as well, clean but with a coarse edge. All in all well done, although its coarseness makes me appreciate the smooth pilsner engineering of regional DE brewing culture.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, white head. Flat, minimally doughy, pale malty aroma with a minimally floral touch of hay. Taste is slightly sweet, doughy pale malty, floral overtones, some hop bitterness with a citrusy touch; bitter and doughy finish. Pilsener with nice Bohemian impact; doesn’t need much adjustment to play top class.
