3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught in the Brewpub on 20th Jan 2014.
Pours a misty yellow / orange colour with a full white crown.
The nose was a blend of grassy notes, yeast and mild maltiness: the taste followed those lines too. This isn’t a crisp, clean tasting Pilsner, it’s got some flavour and attitude compared to most mass produced German Pilsners I’ve come across.
Body depth was good, it wasn’t watery or weak feeling.
The wife didn’t like hers very much, so I had some of that one as well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Hops and Barley, Berlin.
Dorée, claire avec un col blanc moyen.
Arôme offre un bouquet houblonné assez neutre et dans une tradition noble très européen pour un fleuri modéré.
Palais est malté, carapils, assez sec et pétillant, pointe de caramel en arrière-plan. Garde ici aussi un petit côté beurre, sec et fleuri avec un fini houblonné presque à cru ponctué d’une note moyenne de levure lager. Ok, mais pas spécialement convaincante.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A gassy pilsener. Slight sharpness to it. It’s very fresh tasting with good level of bitterness and a drying finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ H&B.
Pours a slightly hazy medium straw, with a white head.
Malty aroma, hops, citrus, faint hints of yeast and diacetyl.
Off-dry, light to medium bodied, mid bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty, hoppy taste, citrus, faint caramel, yeast.
A very decent tipple, but the sweetness in the palate is out of style in my book. (2013-06-18)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed golden colored body with an inch thick, creamy, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly spiced with a bit of a hay bitterness alongside a lightly sweetened pils malt backing. A few fruit notes with a touch of bready yeast. Flavor is better. Lightly bitter throughout with some lemon-grass hops and a few fruit notes with lightly sweetened, somewhat bready pils maltiness. Finishes clean and dry with a light bitterness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light body with a crisp, moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid pils. Crisp, clean, balanced, and easy drinking. I’m a fan of this.
