3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml swing top bottle from ThirstyBird, thanks! Poured into a pilsner glass, ABV 4.9%
Clear body, with huge activity going in there. Bright golden yellow colour, two fingers of thick, soapy head that actually gained in size at first, while sitting in the glass. Excellent retention, heavy lacing left on the glass.
Aroma is quite malty, with stale bread and hay notes.
Malts on the taste too, but they seem to dominate the background mostly. Yp front a nice bitterness is in command, quite intense with long duration too. Some hay also present too, as an aftertaste note.
Very very dry on the palate, good carbonation, medium thin body.
Overall a very tasty and bitter pilsner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice crisp pils, yet still only a pils, and enjoyable after some home project work tonite. The pour was its best feature, nice golden color with a very thick and rich foamy head. The lacing was quite solid also. The aroma was strong grass, some grains, and a light hint of vegetables or herbs. The flavor was strong dry grass over an almost bready initial light malt flavor. With increasing temperatures, the grassy hops took over and this was a rather hoppy bitter beast (for a pils anyway). Somewhat dry mouthfeel enhanced by a significant level of carbonation. Not bad. Much thanks to MoritzF, who through this one in as a gift in a trade with DerDoppelbock. A nice opportunity to sip a rare brew. Prosit!
