3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a nice look, typical for a pilsener. The color is a very pale yellow. The beer has a little cloudiness. On top of the foam, a rough layer of white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, to leave a thin drape. The smell is very nice. It’s very hoppy. I smell some citrus notes and lemon zest. I also smell some floral hop notes. Besides the hop I smell a bready malt aroma. This gives the beer a nice sweet touch. The smell is in quite good balance. The beer is way more fruity than most pilseners. The taste is nice. The beer has a firm bitterness. There are some nice hoppy flavors. I taste some citrus fruits. The beer has a little soapy touch thought, this isn’t that great. Besides the hops, there is also a nice malty taste. The finish is a bit weird. It reminds me a little of soap. It’s a bit resinous. It is a strange sensation, but it’s nice. I like this beer. It’s a pilsener with a nice hoppy depth to it.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from my EU Local Swap 4/2015 sender MrHangover, thanks!
Pale golden, clear body, with a big, fluffy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of hay, grains, flowers, citrus, grass, sweet malts, some cardboard, slight vegetables.
Taste follows this, with some more herbs and without the off-notes fortunately.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, hoppy, piney, herbal, floral, grassy.
OK, but nothing special. The nose has some unpleasant off-notes, but the taste is better, quite crisp and hoppy, with some nice citric hops and a really nice dry, piney finish.
