4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hmmm what is there to say about this that have not been said before. Probably nothing. If you stumble upon this rating, you might believe it is an “happy” rating. I rarely give any pilsner any higher rating than 3. But this pilsner make you realize how pilsner really should be. Not all the crap you usually get. Looks lovely with its hazed golden color and two finger thick white head. Solid lacing down the glass. Both aroma and flavor are dominated by a lovely mellow and smooth malt aroma. Lovely fresh bitterness. Medium body and a pleasant creamy soft carbonation. One more please!

Tap @ Highlanders Aarhus. Pours like pilsner. Golden with a white head. Aroma of pilsner malts, grassy hops, bread and some weak nutty and honey notes as well. The taste has some bread, some classic saaz hops, pilsner malt and some weak sweeter malts as well. Refreshing but yeah - a good pilsner.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Na Parkanu and in various other pivnice round and in Plzen.
Quite different from the bottled version, more floral and somewhat yeasty.
It seems not to be the same beer. Big white head, hazy pale in color.
Not so good as I expected but still a great beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a mildly hazy yellow body with a creamy white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy nose with earthy and somewhat spicy noble hop aromas. Dry taste with a bitter punch and a lingering puckering dryness on the finish. Soft carbonation and light easily drinkable mouthfeel. Excellent balance and smoothness, a bit dank hop aroma.

Erstaunlich, wie malzig dieses Piwo doch daherkommt. Wunderbar süffig, leicht blumig, eine leichte Muffigkeit zum Schluss, daneben aber frisch und mehr als einfach zu trinken. Super.
