faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 15, 2013
Botella. Unclear golden, small white head. Aroma of some malt and fruitish hops, some grain too. Ok mouthfeel. Mild like flavour, malty with some fruity hops. Mild bitterness. Bit flat like. Simple pils.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Crisp and fluffy, this Pilsener juxtaposes mild herbal hops and dry hay until delicate spicy bitterness slowly establishes itself.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear straw yellow.
-All flavors could have been more engaging, but there were no other issues to report.
-Mouthfeel was pleasant dry and drinkability quite high.
-This was much better cared for than their cask Bitter that evening. It didn’t feel rushed out at all.

On tap at Beer Belly Tenma.

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2011
Tap at Edobori Beer Belly. Pale blond colour with small white head. Slightly cloudy. Aroma is bread dough, yeast, little bit of hops, and slightly fruity/floral (soft orange smell). Taste is grainy with a bitter finish. Lively in the mouth. Not bad.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2009

TimE (5081) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2009
Golden color with frothy white head. Nose is very hoppy and true to the Czech style, however, I found the body had a bit of diacytle, which I have tasted previously and think it is intentionally a part of the beer, but I didn’t like that. Still the hop profile is solid and nice lingering bitter finish. Potential to be great, but isn’t what I want.

Capa (2758) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2008
A hazy golden color with a nice white head. Malty bread aroma with light, crisp hops in back. Flavor is heavy on the malts, light on the hops. Pretty full bodied for the style. Not a bad pils, but I prefer more hops in my pilsners. (Draught at McLoughlin’s)
