2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the brewery, 5,0 % abv. Pours a pale golden colour with a good foamy head, that disappears quite fast. Aroma of wet wood, dough and hay, mostly malts in the smell. Flavour is grassy, earthy and some spruce. Soft carbonation and soft palate. Could have hade some more carbonation in my opinion. Overall, an okey pilsener.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle RG 20. Hazy yellow with thin dissipating head. Smells lightly of honey, dry grain and faint citrus. Tastes lightly of honey, with a little dryness. But its watery.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Richmond 20th. Courtesy maniac. Bizarre aroma - drake mentioned wet cat, and I can’t disagree. Flavor is lightly crackery with faint floral hops, far better than the aroma. OK.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Half liter bottle shared by maniac at the 20th Richmond Gathering. Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow with a thin white head that quickly fades. Aroma of honey, dust, wet cat, caramelized sugar. The taste is grassy hops, pale malts, a salty note and slight lingering bitterness. Thin-bodied. Odd beast.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle. Very pale and light amber colour with a large pillow of white foam. Looks like most other pilseners and has a strong grainy wet hay aroma that is reminiscent of the style. In the mouth it is very crisp and clean with a pefurmey type flavour with a mild touch of bitterness. Quite full in the mouth with a smooth creaminess.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, which gets points in itself - 500ml version of a methode champagne bottle - looks awesome. Definitely a pilsner in the German style, though maybe not with quite the bitterness. Very clean and well made.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours pale gold with a large head fed by lively carbonation.
Nose is restrained but shows bready malt, hay and very soft spicy notes.
Flavours follow along the same lines but also include a grainy character.
Nice moderately high carbonation suits the beer well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty good and quote classical. No new world floral action here, rather farm yard malts and old bready hops give that classical East European feel. Really as good as most classical styles in Australia.
