3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow pour with a rocky white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Pretty bland aroma. Hay, chalk, very mild herbal and floral hops. Flavor is a step up. The hops come through a bit more. More herbal than floral. Honey like sweetness. Nice clean bitter finish that lingers. Has some nice qualities, but they don’t seem to come together as well as in the best examples of the style.

Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of pivnizub. A well made pilsener. Effective, good bitterness, hoppy. Probably even better on tap and without having a row with your girlfriend :-( Thanks a lot pivnizub!

500ml fliptop bottle: pours a very pale yellow with a smallish pure white head. Moderate metallic aroma with a bit of grassiness. Flavor is crisp and dry with bitter hops. The flavor is actually quite good. A bit prickly but I like it.
