2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, sampled in Kotor/Montenegro (BB 03/2005)
Golden lager color. Mostly vanishing white head. Light herbal aroma. Medium-bodied, well-balanced hoppied mouthfeel. Maybe not the greatest pils in the world but pleasant.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark gold color with a thin white head that ran with its tail between its legs. Very little lacing. Aroma of raw vegetables, hay and hops. Thin-bodied and bubbly with light bitter hops flavor. The finish is dry and vaguely hoppy. Not so good.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
No head, nice golden colour. Beer was almost completely flat. Yeasty cookie aroma and a herbaceous-white grape smell was also obvious. Light Saaz flavour and decent maltiness. Fairly different but not bad.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Vegetable aroma. Kind of smells like V8. Pours light piss yellow, thin white head. Unsatisfying delivery and finish. Unpleasant corn aftertaste. Void of any real flavour or character.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gold! Nik isn't bad, just a bit overly bubbly, sweet with peppery undertones, full of solvent when warmed. For best results, keep Nik cool.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bright gold, with a good white head. Has a crisp hops smell, mostly dry. Medium-light bodied, good crisp flavor and finish, not complex, but good quality, no skunkiness, staleness, or anything bad. Has a sharp/bitter hops flavor, very dry body and not much else.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Faint slightly citrus aroma. Clean light gold with thin skiff and lacing. Rough chewy unpolished flavour. Oakes "herbal" description fits. UNTIL the bottom of the glass when suddenly I get the impression of drinking beer out of an ashtray!!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden. Light grassy notes in the nose. Body is spritzy and ends with a light bitterness. Most things that are required in a pils, just lacking excitement. Not bad.
