4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is still my favorite Bohemian style pilsner as of 6-5-11. It pours golden yellow with a nice and foamy yellow head. It smells of citrus, malt, hops, and floral. It tastes fresh with a good balance of bitterness and malt sweetness. The hop bitterness is the primary flavor and is very refreshing. This is the oldest pilsner in the world and pilsner is named for the town, Pilz, it is brewed in. I love this beer alot. It is smooth and thin on the palaette and is good on a hot day or to complement good foods.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caoba claro y tupido con espuma blanca algo irregular. Aromas de fruta madura, azúcar moreno,
florales y cereal. Cuerpo medio, textura maltosa, inicio ligeramente dulce de la malta, que recuerda por momentos a la manzana roja, un toque floral que acaba en un amargor seco moderado. Muy rica.

01.11.2014, tap @ Cardinal:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry grainy, hay, dried grain, popcorn, caramel, weeds, light malts, grass. Taste is dry and crisp, hay, light malts, paper, wet grain, minerals. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry slightly harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Cardinal. It pours a lightly hazy unclear body under a dense two finger white head. Nice curtains. Light piney nose, with grass and and hay, some generic fruit notes and resins. It has a nice, subtle bitterness lurking in the back, with resins, pine cones and fruityness up front. It’s very soft and smooth on the palate, dry and pleasantly carbonated, with a pleasant bitterness in the end. Damn, this is something different from the regular industrial pilsners. I’m not blown away, but it’s sure nice. 141101

Keg at Cafe Sara, october 17th 2014. Clear golden body with a huge white head. Aroma of noble hops, herbs, light fruits, malt. Mild toasty taste with earth, flowers, grass. Thick grainy and flowery finish, lasting bitterness. Maybe not as good as it’s hype, but definately one I’m happy to have had the chance to taste!

Fra fat pĺ Cardinal, Mandag i annen: endelig fĺr vi smake denne klassikeren, hurra for Cardinal! Lett uklar gylden med fint hvitt skum. Herlig frisk aroma, smak og ettersmak, alt med en elegant bitterhet (Saaz/Zatek er nćrliggende ĺ anta). Slik skal en pilsner smake! En fornřyelse ĺ la denne renne over ganen, og der var flere enn meg som tok seg en pĺfyll.
