Classic is right. Pours a straw color with some carbonation and almost no head. Nose is salty , grassy, sour, and a tad but skunky. Taste is salty and super bitter. Very tradition but somewhat hard to drink because of the excessive bitterness.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is another wonderful German pilsner. It’s deep gold with a medium, creamy white head that steadily shrinks to a thin, permanent top. The aroma is a solid, full-bodied pilsner with a lot of sweet grain, hay, herbal hops. It’s fruity and aromatic. The taste is nice fruity grain, honey, apple, a light but persistent pein-herb flavour, grass, a light fruity-honey sweetness dominated by the hop flavour and bitterness. Compared to Bitburger, the grain flavour is weaker, with more of an apple quality, and the herb character is about the same in strength but the flavour is different.

Cask at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardener. Aroma of grass, spice, malt and metal. Pours a golden coloured beer with a small white head and some carbonation. Taste is grassy with vanilla has a tangy sweet after taste. OK, but not all that.

0.5l can. Pours a clear golden with no head. Aroma is weird. It’s a mix of malt and hops, but reminds me of plastic. Not bad, just weird. Palate is fizzy and watery, but a little oily. The taste is very bitter, but also has a weird flavour to it, that would I put with the weird plastic flavour. I wonder if this is a bad batch? It went away after a few sips though, and the remaining flavour was quite nice.

Draught at Uusi Apteekki, Turku. Golden color with creamy head. Sweetish, very malty aroma with some herbal hops. Fairly bitter and strongly malty flavor with grapefruity and herbal hops, perhaps a buttery note too. Strongly carbonated. Used to be a personal favourite but wasn’t so tasty this time.

Bottle from BevMo. Medium golden in color upon pouring. Slightly sweet fruity flavor with a bit of graininess. Fairly grainy with a little bit of a sweet flavor to it. The finish is pretty bitter.

500ml can. Small white head with blonde color. Grassy, bland and very watery. Maybe the bottled one is better, but the one I had barely tasted something...

Boa Pilsen. Coloração dourado, espuma branca e de boa formação. Cheiro de cereais e malte - bom. Amarga - bom equilíbrio. Leve especiarias. Retrogosto amargo, leve com boa drincabilidade.
