2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly creamy crisp lager aroma - not particularly hoppy. Refreshing subtle hoppy taste, again a bit creamy. The hop bitterness is quite short, but it is most pleasant while it’s there. Perhaps a little thin, but that makes it quite a drinkable pilsner. This is the beer all other pilsners should be compared to - if it’s worse than this it really isn’t very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, Pasteurised. Golden beer with thick white head, highly carbonated. I really enjoyed this pilsner, great clean dry flavours, sharp and definite in its aims. Refreshing and juicy, pretty decent.

Green bottle poured a clear gold with a minimal white head. Aromas of some skunk, sweet malt and and some floral hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, a bit of carmel, some earthy hops with a pleasent bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Nice dark golden color, not as yellow as most pilseners these days. Pretty much my ideal color for a pilsener. Nice white head of about one finger. Little bit musty smell, but full flavored taste. Malts and grains in the taste. Low to medium carbonation, medium body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
nice pilsener aroma, quite strong aroma for a macro. white head, relatively large, darkish clear yellow. Looks great. bitter taste (like pilsene) but a little more sweetness and bitterness than the average pilsener. aftertaste is sweet combined with pilsener. aftertaste lasts for a while. Great taste for a "low" alc.% beer.

Pours clear golden with a slight green hue. Nice, creamy, white head. Weak aroma, sweet maltiness with subdued grassy hops. Medium carbonation with a nice, rather oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet chewy malts with a fine hoppy finish. More bitter than dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty and hoppy aroma and taste with some hay. It starts with some malty, almost buttery sweetness on the tongue, immediately followed by a hoppy, but soft bitterness. Long hopbitter finish. Good pilsener, but doesn’t live up completely to its reputation.
