3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Grass, hay, bread, candy, marmalade, minerals, hint of honey, very rich for a pilsener.
Appearance: Amber colour, medium white head, traces of lacing.
Flavour: Very rich flavour as well. Big bite, lots of hops in this one. Grass, straw, minerals, some candy in the background, like it a lot!
Mouthfeel: Rather sharp bubbles, very lively.
Total: And here I thought that I had outgrown this style, but this one shows that a pilsener can pack tons of flavour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2011 Bottled, thanks ZWR! Cloudy deep golden, no head. Fruity nose with some floral notes. The clean hard mouthfeel makes it no service, neither does the rather unpleasant yeastiness. Some hard crystal malt before a yeasty finish with low bitterness. Not even close to a good beer. I was really hoping for much more from this brewer, hope for rapid improvement. (4/2/4/2/8 = 2.0)
Re-rate, bottled at SMÖF. Clear deep golden, small head. Buttery nose with a fair amount of hay. Mid sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Soft and pleasant with nice malt depth. Very Czechish and pilsnerish. How is that for a rapid improvement?
