3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle) Slightly cloudy golden colour with a frothy white small head. Sweet malty and toasted bread aroma with grassy hops in the background. Light sweet flavour, smooth carbonated, medium bodied. Well balanced initial soft sweet maltiness and a gentle bitterdry hoppiness. Excellent, almost astringent hopbitter finish. A quaffable uncommon, light-filtered Pilsener.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Firm, medium head. Doughy, slightly grassy, hoppy and straw-like (a bit like in Czech 10% svetles) aroma. Rather mild, hoppy, lightly sweet and slightly malty flavour. Finishes lightly dry. Maybe not something for fans of dry and hoppy pilsner, but a decent pilsner of the milder, more sweetish variety, a bit akin, especially in the aroma, to Bohemian pilsner.
