3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Translucent yellowish-gold with a sudsy, wavy white head. A lemon and bread crust aromatic introduction includes some sweet pine and grassier formations. Mostly a lighter, bready sniff with substance. Clean and cool for the flavor portion, with a honey lemon poppy seed muffin motif sans half the sugar. Crisp pils muskiness is more of a slightly spiced and bitter background. Grassy, herbaceous qualities keel at the tongue’s sides. Cologne misted over oat flakes and a touch of experimental sourdough but forth by the Wonderbread brand. Light-to-medium bodied, finishing with perfumey remnants that hit at rye bread with rice hulls and oat flakes on top.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Kinda weird pale and unclear color. And as it turns out, tiny little impurities are floating in the brew. Almost no head. Strong flavor from really good hops and it leaves a distinct -but not numbing- bitterness. Underlying malty sweetness. Very good pils. 270204

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale gold, thick white head, champenoise bubbling. Nose yields grain, pale malt, grape-like smell, herbal. Dry taste, spicy(nutmeg?)-herbal-grassy flavours, Germans hops, discreet. Very dry mouthfeel, light bodied, champenoise carbonation, not much aftertaste. A really good Pilsener - in what is difficult to pinpoint, but it beats score of its competitors in an offhanded way.

pale and clear with a promising hay aroma. a little syruppy, plenty of sweet malt without the expected bitter finish. still not bad anyway
