Bottle, LCBO. Dark yellow, medium creamy white head. Aroma of hay, cereal, and a vit of yeast as well. Mouthfeel is full; a surprise for the style, and adds greatly to the beer. taste is decent - sort of tinny hops you come to expect fr0m European lagers, but also a nice amount of bready and cereal like malt as well. This one grew on me - I was not impressed at first, but through the whole glass quite a bit of flavour emerged. Certainly a cut above in this category.

Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours amber with a frothy off white head. Light mango aroma. The taste more mango before a crisp bitter citrus finish. Ligt and refreshing.

nybol (1460) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
Hold da op en god pilsner. Den har en skarp humlet smag, jeg ved ikke om der er brugt aromahumle men den smager af noget frugtagtigt. Der er ikke meget brus i den, men det gřr ikke noget, det forstćrker bare oplevelsen af at man sidder pĺ island og drikker en "rustis" řl.

The foam is serious and persistent and it bubbles nicely in the glass. It has a really welcoming malty aroma with a slight touch of flower and hops. The taste is very dominant of caramel malt, and at the end results in a gentle hoppy aftertaste which is relatively long-lasting. A little flower, I also think being able to taste in the final.
