2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle, served in snifters and shared with two friends. 2" white head. Honey-colored body. Taste: A short attack of moderate hops and malty sweetness. Very drinkable and after all a honest atempt of the style which isn’t a personal favorite. Nose: a weaker variation of the taste.

Descrete hoppy aroma with a dark-yellow colour. Nice dry bitter palate and taste. Good pilsner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Håndverkerstuene. True to typ, but why should Mikkeller make a run-of-the-mill pils?
Soft, round mouth feel, aromatic hops with flowers and perfume. Light, easy drinking, moderate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Both bottle and on tap. Tap-version is hazy with almost no head. No sign of carbonation. Also a bit darker colour. Aroma is grassy with notes of hops and dough. Flavour is a tad bitter, but the tap-version feels fresher. Long and lingering aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Haandverkerstuene. Light golden with a thin head. Smells of malts and some grass. Grassy taste, some sweetness and quite dry. Then a powerful but elegant saaz hoppy finish

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out golden, a medium sized head that holds pretty decent, sticks nice to the glass. The smell is earthy-yeast and citrus. The taste is about the same, the dry-earth and hops are in front. More bitter then expected. This score is from a non-pilsner drinker...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Patricks. Slightly dim golden body with a thin white head. Light and grassy aroma with a hint of citrus. Flavor is mild, sweet malty, grain, grass, some caramel and moderate fruity with a fine and balanced bitterness. Fine and bitter aftertaste. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to yespr for this one. The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Small head, modest turbid. Starts quite dry, modest fruity-sourish like lemon. Finish mild but not washy, still quite dry and "dusty". Drinkable and good pilsner. But not more.
