3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, grassy, herbacious hops, and a vague sweetness. Flavor is similar with some earthy, grassy, and herb-like hops complimenting the sweetness of the malt. It is an interesting pils, to be sure.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale, quite hazy orange yellow beer, frothy white head. Very enthusiastic, already when opening the bottle. Aroma of elderflower, malt, hops, some honey, like orange-blossom honey. Quite floral. Some citrussy hops, not in the foreground but adding a pretty nice layer. Flavour quite sweet, honey, malt, rather strong hops for a pilsener. Some lingering sweetness, then turning bone dry with a pleasant lingering floral hoppy finish. Well done Mikkeller & Proefbrouwerij, you just made pilsener sexy again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at People’s, Oslo. Fairly standard pilsner look. Nose indicates a pilsner with a somewhat enhanced hoppiness. The strength of this brew I find midtaste, with a lovely hop bitterness - refined, crisp and well-balanced, probably the best Czech-style lager I’ve tasted.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The body pours clear gold and throws up an average sized white head.
Spicy herbal hop aroma that approaches minty.
Lightly bitter flavor that has some dryness in the finish.
Very nicely done - wish it was priced the same as American Micros.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at Sail and Anchor. Not bad at all. Has a medium bitterness to it. Everything you should expect from a pilsner with maybe a little more hops but nothing over the top

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sleightly hazy golden with a decent white head. Fresh flowery aroma with notes of hay and fresh grass. Medium bitter flavor, clean and very saiysfying. Nothing bad to say about it, it is what you want from a pilsner added a little more hops than the avarage

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
08-APR-2011, bottle @home, from "Superbest".
Golden with low white head. Actually has a slight orange hue to it.
A little weak nose. Light malty stuff like hary, but also some more fruity aromas like peach emerge while warming up a bit.
Taste is mostly bitter with just a slight sweetness and fruityness on the charamelly hay-like body.
Some creamyness and fine carbonation.
Fine pilsner. One of the best, but then again it is just a pilsner, and no rebuy from me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a clear gold color. The head was white, two fingers high and reduced quickly to a thin lasting film. Smelled of fresh cereal grain, honey, and misty/grass hop. Light bodied, crisp and dryish. There was some delicate lingering bitterness after the finish. Pale malt and subdued noble hop flavors with a seltzer water-type mineral note.
