2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at a beer tasting event at "Pannrummet" in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Light yellow color. Malty scent. High bitterness, malty a bit hoppy taste. A German classic by all means. The low score is only because of my recent lack of appreciating light lagers, this is well made and a classic, but just not right for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Eh, okay. Bitter. Okay, but the bitterness is strong. Hoppy. Slightly smooth, but not a very smooth finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can. Clear golden with an average white head. Metallic hoppy aromas. Medium bodied. Quite bitter. Slightly harsh bitterness as there is not really enough body to stand up against most of the hop punch. Aftertaste is dry from hop bitterness. Nice and refreshing, but slightly challenging as it is a bit mouth puckering.

Decent pils...not great, not bad either. Solid beer. Good aroma, head retention and mouthfeel. Would have again. Not exactly a Pilsner Urquell, though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a great white head. Aroma of herbal, grassy hops with a lot of fresh hay. The mouthfeel is dry, very dry actually, and sharp, with a flavor of bitter, grassy hops, some sweet notes and a crisp malt. The finish is even more bitter and lasts near forever. One of the best Northern Pilseners, though not everybody’s piece of cake because of the strong bitterness. I for one like it very much.

2.22.05 Kind of random thing on tap. Very solid German pils. I’m usually not a big fan of the pilseners, but this was actually pretty good. The hops work their magic here, like Penn & Teller.
