ElManana (248) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2014
Drank from the can, so giving appearance points on the can, which looks gorgeous as are most of Mikkellers releases. Nose is citrus, citra hops, pineapple. Taste is citrus, pine and hops. Aftertaste is heavenly bitter which makes it an ideal refresher. Best pilsener I've ever had, should give this on tap in the pubs.

tiong (3752) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2014
355ml can from Bierkompass

Pours clear golden with a smooth head. Aroma of crisp malts, grass, citrus, pine and hints of buttery notes. Taste is crisp, grassy and slightly buttery with some citrusy and earthy notes. Finish is crisp, sweetish and grassy with lingering bitterness and hints of citrus. A bit unbalanced.

laiti (5667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2014
35,5 cl can @ home
Aroma is sweetish with peaches, apricot and hayish malt. Also grain. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with grapefruit and some minerals. Finishes with grassy tones. Quite far from a pilsener, feels like 3% ABV IPA. Refreshing!

brnandersen (1905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2014
Sample from 355 ml. can. Clear, golden colour with a thin, slightly tanned head. Fruity aroma with citrus, grape, peach and pale malts. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with fruits. Lovely Pils.

thornecb (4396) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Pours pale gold into a shaker. White soapy head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Hay and citrus aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel and hay upfront turning to mildly bitter earth in the lasting finish.

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Can. Pours crystal clear golden amber, large off-white creamy head, dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is grain, grass, a bit of citrus as well. Flavor is very light sweet tending to dry, light bitter, grassy, a touch of citrus. Clean as expected. Light body, bit of a lingering bitter finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Nothing terribly unique about this one. Light 10 karat pour with a small ivory cap. A little citrus, a smidge of grassiness, and a hint of earthy/dusty hops. Not bad but wouldn’t return to this.

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Idiosynkrasie (3804) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
355ml can. Clear golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally to moderately lacing, white head. Citrusy and grassy hopy aroma, notes of lemon and lime, lemongrass, some basil, a spicy touch of hay. Taste is fresh, citrusy hoppy, lemon notes throughout, in the middle part intensified and concentrated like a "Wick Zitrone"-cough sweet, sorbet, some basil, grass, spicy and fresh hay. Have a look, poor German majors, what a Pilsener can be like. ’Keeper’ not just "better" relational, it is (and will remain) excellent by absolute standards.

JulienHuxley (3046) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Can from Geers. Nice clear gold pour with nice white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy, sweet-resinous traditional american hop profile, spruce, really pungent. Taste is bitter, complete hop juice with just a faint hint of honey like malt sweetness, but overall very dry and almost sticky with hop resin. Palate is light bodied with medium carbonation. Completely unbalanced, but completely tasty.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Inbreak (2129) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2014
13.09.2014, 0,35l can @ home:
Opens with a boom and a delayed fountain all over the bench. Huge slightly fizzy longlasting head. Aroma is fresh grassy, lawn, leafs, hay, moss, light malts, fresh hops, pine needles, bark, hints of tropical fruits. Taste is dry and slightly harsh, bark, weeds, lawn, leafs, paper, dried grain, harsh hops, pine neeles. Longlasting bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel, high carbonation. Fair enough.
