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.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 Tap@brewpub. Yellow hazy. Lagery pale malty nose. Some worty grainyness, warming up spicy ginger. Light body, some yeastyness, light citrus, grass. Well carbonated. Nice one, a bit stiff but with a good yeasty touch, making it appear fresh (doesnt taste super fresh though).

FatPhil (8595) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 5, 2013
Tap (Kochi Ait, Tallinn)
Simple malty pale lager, sweetish. Pale slightly hazy gold, unpourable head. Smoothish sweetish palate, prickly carbonation. simple milk grains, just a hint of hops. More hops in finish, just, but still more of a simple helles than a pilsner. Needs either more bitering hops or more attenuation to crispen it up. Dut I do quite like it, it’s fresh and refreshing.

Hazy golden color, smallish head. Lightly sweet and malty aroma. Initial flavor is sweetish with notes of grain. Later it turns to more bitter with notes of grass, even a hint of citrus. Pleasant bitterness dominates the finish. (Tap, poured in a dimpled mug.)

(Keg at Kochi Ait Trahter, 20130703) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had butter, grass and mildly grain. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, sweetness, grain and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Again a too sweet beer and the butter in the aroma was confusing, too.

Marduk (2010) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2013
Tap. Slightly hazy, golden color. Medium size white head, stays. Sweet, honey, faint grassy notes in aroma. Hops, earthy, bready, grainy in flavor. Full of hoppy bitterness. Dry mouthfeel. It reminds me Koduõlu on (hop) steroids.
