3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling golden colour with a persistent white head. Aromas of sweet malt and Irish whiskey, oddly enough. There is a chemical freshness along with peachy nectar. I’m undecided as to whether this is an asset or not. On the whole I have decided that I quite like the smell. In the mouth there is an enormous amount of carbonation that brings out slightly tart fruity juiciness and some of the more mellow malt characters. This is a pilsner, but not like I know it. It finishes with an almost Granny Smith apple crispness but I am left wondering about a few things. It wouldn’t slot nicely into the style, it is a curious creature but not without its charms. Does this oddness harm the overall response to the beer and should it be regarded along BJCP guidelines? I’ll prevaricate and judge it whether I liked it or not along with consideration for what it would do if judged more critically. I did quite like it, I have had less charming beers but I’m looking forward to something different next.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden pour. Normal head volume, outstanding retention and lacing.
Light nose of noble hops over biscuit with a hint of lemon.
Light body that has a texture of water. Perfect carbonation with a burst of middle effervescence and rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish.
The flavor profile is quite good, but lacks the intensity and complexity to be outstanding. It begins pretty much as it ends. A light hop flavor over a light biscuit and mild bitterness. The finish is clean, dry and crisp.

Bottle pour. This was okay. Aroma is pure Pilsener but I thought the taste was a little off. Okay.

Rating #1189 - 18.07.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Clear yellow colour, nice white foam, medium retention. Aroma is pleasant, generously hopped. Mouthfeel is bubbly and crisp, medium carbonation. Taste is hint of sweet malt, dries out in the fairly smooth finish with a nice hoppy presence. Delicious.

Bottle. Citrus, grainy barley malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with giant white head. Sweet lemon, barley malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Decent body.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glass bottle. No expiry date. So who knows.
Pours a honey color. About one finger head. Doesn’t last long. Does leave a little around the edge of the surface. No lacing.
Aroma is light. Not a lot of anything. Breadiness. Lemon zest. That’s about all.
I might as well be drinking bread. That’s about all I can taste. Again there is some citrus or lemon in there. It tastes pretty good but there’s not much to say about it.
Mouthfeel is medium. It tastes light. It finishes slightly bitter but smooth.
Overall its okay. I think its slightly off for a pilsner. Not as good as I expected or hoped for, but still not bad.
