4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottled] Deep golden with a dense head. Good lacing. Love the aroma: floral hop and citrus. Big hoppy bitternes against a malty background. One of the best lagers I’ve ever had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Packed with malt flavor, splendid hoppiness from the three varieties of hops. If some of the macros want a benchmark for what a peremium lager should be, they could try a bottle of this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Golden coloured with just a hint of white haze. Throws a tall creamy egg-white-like head. Crisp floral and citrusy aroma. Grainy. Delicious aroma. Quite bitter and grassy when it enters the mouth. Lots of grainy and hop flavours. Medium-bodied, and with a slight medicinal flavour among the otherwise dominant hops. Very refreshing, but might be tiring to the palate after a while. But this is a great lager!

Dark golden colored, little white head. Dry, fruity, bitterly hopped, even somehow berry aroma, pretty
non-standard-lager aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is dry with fruits and strong bitterness, aftertaste lasts with dryness and fruits.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2006 RBESG 2006, bottle. Clear golden colour. Nice hoppy aroma, flowery and herbal, some vinous notes too. Flavour is reasonably hoppy. I drank it a bit too warm, must be nice and refreshing when colder.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity and a bit yeastyish (!). There’s also some malts, hops and even slight alcoholic notes in the aroma. Flavour is bitter hops and fruits. Malts are coming in the finish, but aftertaste is again very bitterish hoppy. Drinkable.
