Bottle: First enjoyed thanks to Jeff as "2nd Anniversary Lager". Again thanks to Alex, re-branded as Mass Rising. Review based on first sample. Liquid sunshine, golden-yellow & bright, lacking clarity but topped with a thick, soapy, beaming white head. Aroma of pines, white peppery spice, moderate dankness, a touch of cat pee, grapefruit peel, orange rind... Smells quite potent & bitter, full of hops. Flavor is full of pine & resin up front with a strong bitterness that is backed by the smallest of bready malt backbones. Oily hop leaves, citrus, grapefruit, orange; all still on the bitter side, but there’s a very faint hint of sweetness somewhere. Super clean & dry after each sip, perhaps due to the lager yeast? Hoppy citrus peel & cracker malt finish. Really tasty stuff.

teorn88 (6473) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Keg at Mother Kelly’s, London. It pours a hazy straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is citrusy and crispy, with notes of grass, lemon leaves, pine cones, pineapple and honey. Taste is citrusy and grassy, lightly sweet, with notes of piney hops, ripe apricots and caramel malts. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty and zesty

bottled, big thanks to jacob for this one. pale golden, clear with a modest but lasting head; loads of grapefruit in the aroma, pine, lychee, with a trace of bready lager quality; plenty of bitterness, tangy, white grape. excellent stuff, would love to see some czech breweries having a crack at this style

Darwenus (889) - Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours hazy pale yellow, with a mountain of foam. The thickest and clingiest head I’ve seen on a beer in a while. The aroma is lemon, bread, a little honey. A strong, bitter grapefruit hoppy finish dominates the flavor. It’s crisp, but with noticeable alcohol vapor on the exhale. This is a serious pilsner.

Golden colour, a very nicely done imperial pils, with lots of citrus hop aroma and flavour

Bottle; Pour is fairly clear, light gold, with a big and frothy white head into this glass. A bit overcarbed, I guess. But I’m not a complainer. The nose is floral hops initial, moving to citrus notes, baked bread, zesty lemon, and spent grain here. Quite nice - it’s bittering hops initial, citrus, lemon grass, adjunct, more bready notes with a certain yeasty undertone. It’s bright, it lingers on the palate, and it fades to crystal and caramel, with a touch of earthiness.

suprchunk (2960) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Hazy pale straw colored pour. Big fluffy white head. Tons of lacing as the head slowly falls. Malty aroma. Taste is malty with a wee bit of corn. Dry finish.

12 fl. oz. bottle, bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. Pours out in a dark golden, little bit unclear, huge head. Hopy citrus fruity on the nose. Starts with a heavy citrus herb, malt and honey sweetness in the background. Bitterness is present. Longlasting. Little bit alcoholic. I really enjoyed it!
