3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blonde foncée aux reflets mielleux, dense mousse blanche persistante et adhérant remarquablement bien à la paroi du verre. Arômes d’herbes, de beurre, de foin et de houblons noble aux traits épicés. Belle base de grains sur des accents de levure, de pain et de notes très herbales, foin fraîchement coupé, tannins et légèrement fruités. Corps d’épaisseur semi-mince, carbonatation offrant un bon support, grande amertume de houblon en finale. Une belle bière! Échantillon au American Beer Fest, Boston, 18 Juin 2005.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best by 10/05. Aroma is grainy with hints of banana and dry Saaz notes. Crisp with slight citrus. Transparent golden color with a frothy medium white head with some lacing. I get some sweetness to start, turning buttery and caramelly in the middle. Finishes a bit bitter with some more Saaz in there. Slight grapefruit bitter/dryness to finish. This is nice work.

Medium hops and sweet malts tie in nicely with a peppery spicey background. Quite good.

gold color. small white head.
Really hoppy, maybe even a little bit too much so, in terms of balance.

A thick head leads a deep golden color in the glass. However the pilsner is overhopped to my liking, which left a bitter citrus flavor at the back of my tounge. Something to look for for some, but not to my prefrence in a pils.
