3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours deep golden body, shiny essential and pleasant, head is dense, rather frothy with nice lacing, head colour is milky white, body carbonation is medium, very similar to many Bohemian Pilseners.
Aroma: Assertive, classic aroma of German Pilsener, hoppy bitterness with some citrusy notes well balanced with fat malty touch in its deepness, reminding me one of my favourite style - Bohemian Pilsener. Chalky, grainy with simpathic, inviting sweetness lying in the background, some notes of aromatic hops.
Flavour: Generally as in the appearance its more lively colour and in the aroma its sweet malty character pronounces itself in the flavour, giving mild, not that bitter as in the other citrusy yellow coloured Classic German Pilseners. Citrusy, mildly bitter on palate with some pronounced hoppyness in nose, definitely grainy and a bit chalky but much more towards mineral finish. Finish duration is medium.
Palate: Body is light, texture is rather wattery, carbonation on palate is medium, finish feel is chalky but more towards being clean.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2010 tap at 3 Alley in Seoul - Pours clear golden with a one finger white head. It has a light, bready malt aroma. It’s an easy drinking, mild tasting beer with some crisp hops bite. Decent.
Rerate, draft somewhere in London - 5/3/6/3/11. Almost exactly the same. I’ll leave the rating as is.

Sorpresina, una birra molto commerciale - e vedo che il produttore fa anche delle cose oscene ghgh - che però mi piace o perlomeno non mi dispiace. E’ una specie di versione addolcita della classica pils tedesca però non saponosa tipo Bitburger; è vero che di pils ha poco, se non la secchezza ed un certo luppolello nell’aroma però si conserva piacevole per il dopo pranzo e per non abbioccare troppo che mi devo studiare Pascoli e se possibile almeno cominciare quel figaggione di D’Annunzio.
