33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori, Tampere.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of faint hops, some grass and malts. Flavour of hay, hops, bready malts and fruits. Quite straightforward.

Beautiful hazy orange color with big stable head. Fruity hops and a bit of malty caramel. Hoppy bitter start and with a bready sweetness beneath. Bitter finish. Imperial Pilsner is the best-fitting name, and it is interesting. But the yeasts are really not distinct. Now I’m really curious about the other bottles from this series.

12 oz. bottle shared with my wife from notes. Pours a hazy darker orange/golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus, pale, grainy malt, somewhat bready, lightly toasted, a splash of caramel, actually not to much more going on.

"First one tried, and I kinda liked it. Shows the quality of the brews that this ended up slightly in my least favorite position. Nothing wrong, just not as exciting as the others. Dark for a "pale lager" as advertised, and more heavily hopped. Yeast not very distinctive per se."

Marheb (2256) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Résine résiduelle, marmelade, malts plus fruités que caramélisés, corps douillet substantiel qui se termine sèchement.

Lowenbrau (2100) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2014
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 30-5-2014.
In short: a tasty caramel lager.
Pours quite clear amber with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Malty, caramel aromas. Light to medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is moderate bitter, some sweet caramel notes, spicy, some viscous mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

330ml bottle from The Beerhive. Big bubbly white head, good lacing. Clear golden amber body. Nose is lemon and fruit salad sweets. Body is straw, grass then a great grapefruit flavour, little peach on the grassy aftertaste. Finish is just enough bitterness. Mouthfeel is full with medium carbonation. This is a great lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

angel77 (1062) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en casa 06-03-2014 en el momento. color ámbar - miel turbio con espuma blanca persistente, bien de gas, creando bastante espuma al agitarla en todo momento. cuerpo ligero - medio con 6.4 vol, algo pastoso y denso, acentuándose ligeramente según va calentando. Aromas afrutados al inicio con bastante carga de cereales, levadura, con toques ligeramente dulces. sabores ligeramente afrutados y algo cítricos al principio, pasando a resinosos y amargos finales persistentes en boca un rato. Buena, la mas amarga de las tres con un cuerpo mas o menos denso e intenso. Creo que para mi la mejor de las cinco.
