2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Slightly rounder and more floral than most German pilseners, but still very light and dry. Tettnang/Saaz mixture? Hops are mellow and floral rather than spicy or grassy. Reasonably bitter finish that is soft and not metallic like hop-extract pilseners. Lacks malt, definition. But it’s clean, dry and drinkable. A very competently brewed pilsener of modest ambition. rer8: yawn

I loved smelling this bottle before pouring it. The aroma isn’t strong but its great, the strong bitterness in the finish of this beer is its only strength - however its worth drinking for that alone. Its not a flowery hops flavour like many pilseners but a very dry bitterness that lingers for a long time. Reminded me of a stronger and cleaner version of the bitterness in Aussie lagers.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small white head quickly disappears entirely, leaving just an unattractive film. Very pale yellow body with a little carbonation. Faint, thin, mealy, apple-ish aroma with rubbery notes. Taste is clean and crisp, with a bitter, chalky apple-like aftertaste. Very little body. Surprisingly bitter, for a beer that is so low on taste in every other respect. Refreshing, and attractively crisp, but still not much of an achievement in my book. (0.33l bottle.)

Golden with a good head. The hop is present both in the aroma and flavor. Average bitterness in this quite good pilsner

Bottle Nice light bitterness with a dry finish. A bit watery, but thirst quenching. Not my favorite, but not bad.

Canette de 500 ml. Couleur jaune paille, mince collet. Simple arome d’herbe avec un peu de malte. Goût un peu pétillant, sec et amère, peu de malte. C’est O.K.

500 mL can. Yellow with a touch of orange. Thin head. Aroma of grasses with a bit of malt. Taste is unobtrusive. Sweet, grasses, not as much cereal (corn?) as some pilseners. Not much bitterness. Fairly thin. Could be worse.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Compact head of medium persistence. Golden shining color, with good and long-lasting fizz. Herbaceous and fresh aroma with malty and grassy notes. Lightly prickly taste, rather bitter and with good malty and cereals notes. Not much alcoholic end, bitter and of medium duration. Enough balanced.

I appreciated the simplicity of this beverage. It was delicious, yet uncomplicated. I wanted more aroma yet had enough. Confused, I drank more. It had a dry after taste with a hit of caramel... or cinnamon... no. Definitely caramel.

Clear golden body with a good size fluffy white head. Grainy aroma, soft full carbonation. Pleasing bitterness, grain at the front with some hops on the finish. I have gone off pilseners of late but this one could bring me back soon.
