4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Mysteriously low RB rating... this is simply one of the best hoppy pilsners in the world! Dry and crisp, with a refreshing hoppiness and long aftertaste, fresh and clean with hints of mineral (due to the Friesland water used) and some grassiness. Attractive, firm white head. A perfect beer to just enjoy, slowly on it´s own, or with spicy food. A lot better on tap in Germany than from an exported bottle.

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Systembolaget (13:-). Sweet malty and breadish with honey notes, hay/straw, a nice bitterness, light body with a watery texture. The finish is dry and bitter.

Tap, Germany pub, golden pour, no real head, nose is lacking, taste is basic light, nothing special.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
In the world of pils, this an an absolute top.
Draught or bottle, the crispy, herbal aroma with utopian golden colour make a combitnation worth testing.
This is what beer is all about, no tricks or wanna-be-revolutions.
