Bottle, tasting at Appellation Wines. Hazy golden body with a thin off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of salted cornflakes and lemon. Flavour of straw, grapefruit and a salty finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Not particularly interesting. Tastes like a salty Pilsener.

1st bottle of 20 at beer nerds gathering at Appellation Wines Comely Bank on 28/08/14. Thanks to either stuu666 or allmyvinyl.
Appearance - golden orange and hazy with a quickly disappearing head.
Nose - cereal, with just a touch of lemon.
Taste - orange, then cereal and a salty finish.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - a synergy beer. It’s parts weren’t great but enjoyable overall.

Bottle, Cheers Stuu666! Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of a honeyish sweetness, light lemon. Not very pilsner-y. Taste is more citrus, rich mouthfeel, dry finish. Bit odd.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copperish amber with a white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with some classic citrusy note. Behind this I get some floral notes, plants and some unspecified spices. Taste is also kinda hoppy with some citrusy notes up front. Also some earthy notes like plants and natural spices is here and with a very dens body for a pilsner. Interesting beer to try!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strange ’imperial Pilsener’ with glutamates added. Orangey blonde with cream white head, malt sweetness, minerals, grainy, subdued fruitiness. Grainy, smooth palate, vaguely sweetish, mineral-like, soft flowery hop bitterness in the finish. Though an interesting concept, I fail to taste anything remotely umami in this - I had expected at least accents of olives, soy sauce or something like that, but the little taste this beer has, has nothing to do with umami (although I doubt if adding such a taste would actually make this beer better). Still: more glutamates next time!

Clear orange beer, big creamy yellow head, irregular, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very soapy, some chlorine, woody notes, floral. MF: ok carbon, medium body, creamy texture. Taste: very fruity, bit sweet, peaches, ripe mango, some exotic fruits, soapy bitterness, hoppy. Aftertaste: bit lemony, bitter hops, nice brew!
