2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Some nasty hop bite up front on my battered palate (I'd been drinking for a few hours by this stage at the Brisbane Festival). Not enough action.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
nfob03. i would struggle in a blind tasting to distinguish between this and the st arnou pilsener. mild sweet saaz aroma, pretty sweet with some late bitterness. served way too cold, if you're going to make a czech-style pilsener why not serve it at cellar temperature like the czechs do?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
At AIBA 2003. Found this one to be almost entirely unremarkable. Not enough bitterness for me, which is rare. Duff and I will have to agree to disagree.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft AIBA 2003: I liked this one, firmly malty, yet soft at the same time, citrusy floral saaz on the finish, well balanced.
