2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Pale yellow-golden colour, small white head. Aroma is malty with a bit of cardboard. Regular lager. Nothing fancy to expect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel (3.50 CHF):
Fresh with a nice balance, good citrus flavours & some light malts too but nothing really stood out with it though. A good session pale lager with a clean & crisp feel but it’s not one that I’d go out of my way for really.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 5/27/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of light lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of light lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Not much dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice unfiltered pale lager style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden, a bit pale, medium head, no lacing. Low carbonization, some odd tastes, not particular aromas. Somewhere on the scale between mediocre and bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bignens Vins, Balexert. Crazy rubbish about the full moon on the bottle, who knows what madness is going on in the mountains. Very pale golden lager. Soft mouthfeel with some spicy noble hop bitterness to finish. Actually slipped down quite nicely. Definitely a step up from Eurolager, it’s not Pilsener Urquell from the wood but don’t know why people are quite so down on it beyond the usual bias that all noble hopped lagers are skunky.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with little foam. Very malty smell. The taste is very lager-like with a too strong barley focus. The aftertaste is okay, but not more. A good lager, but too much barley for my taste.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of wheat and grass. Pours clear golden with a fine white head with good lacing. Nice sour taste. Notes of lemon and leather. Round palate with nice carbonation and a sharp, crisp finish. Quite nice.
