A noble brew for those beer enthusiasts who prefer a traditional Bohemian pilsner - beer with a flavor and aroma bouquet derived from the world-renown Saaz hops. Fittingly for the brewery’s flagship brew, this refreshing beer is known for its bright white head of thick foam as well as for its spicy and citrus flavor with a hoppy finish.

Kauge (182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2014
Tap at the brewpub (€ 2,90 for 50 cl), Sept 2014. Looks a slightly hazy golden with a decent white head that leaves thin layer. Nose is grassy malts (complemented by very loud, terrible pop-country music from the speakers), plasticky and doughy. Taste is also grassy and malty, with herbal, earhy, plasticky bitterness. Quite soft on the palate with some graininess, and a fizzy carbonation. Grassy, dry finish. Having trouble a) finishing the 50 cl, and b) deciding which is worse: the music or the beer.

visionthing (2796) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
50cl on tap at the brewpub. Very hazy golden with a small, white head. Mild malty aroma with some hoppy notes, herbs and hints of grass. Moderate sweet, mild flavours and a light bitterness in the finish. Fair enough and refreshing on a hot day, but nothing yo write home about.

laiti (5755) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is hayish with buttery notes. Also some grainy malt and hints of grass. Flavour is dry with hay, some grassy hops and some grain. Finishes with herbal tones. Also some slight plastic off-flavour. Quite easy-going.

This is quite close to their pale lager - but the lager is more refreshing and this one has butter.
