3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy straw color yellow with enough bubbles rising to the top and a creamy head of bone white foam that left good lacing. Nose is exactly what it should be. Yeasty, with a sour twang. Little citrus and some grain and bready malt. Taste was flat and I will say that I thought it might be old. There is a freshness code on the bottle but not in date form and in the store I just bought it anyway. The taste was a little too smooth. I would say tame and it just wasn’t crisp. The yeast had plenty of bite on the nose but that did not translate into the drink. It was even a little chalky in the middle and a bit drying. It had all the other elements of a good pils. It had a light lemon, little bit of grass and a soft bready malt. Finished almost dry but muddled overall. Mouthfeel was so soft that I thought it out of the ordinary for a pils.
I was a bit disappointed but I would say to try this one anyway. It’s organic and it could simply be that this bottle was not fresh.

Hazy golden color with a large white head that fades quickly. Crisp, malty, yeasty. Hints of pepper and citrus zest. A mild hops in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on tap) Golden, clear, with a persistent white head. Aroma is grassy with a fine spiciness that I also detect in Pinkus Spezial and makes it more memorable or recognizable. Sbtle and delicate aroma, but by no means boring. Taste is lightly bitter, very lightly sweet. Not too fizzy on the palate, with a nice aroma development on the palate. Light body, perfect for a Pilsener. Delicious and quaffable session beer!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served from a bottle.
Pours with a typical pils appearance, but with a weak head.
Aroma: Light malts and grains with mild spicy hops.
Flavor: follows the nose: this is mild even for style.
Overall: a solid but unremarkable pils; well crafted but just too tame.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Une bière blonde qui s’embrouille assez rapidement. Une mousse blanche qui ne résiste guère. Un nez simple et peu intéressant de grains jaunes et de fraises mielleuses. Un goût fruité avec des pommes et des petits fruits. Des céréales qui ne me plaisent pas particulièrement. Des houblons effacés ou transformés. Une bouche qui présente un corps mince. Une effervescence molle. Une texture aqueuse. Une finale surette et amère qui offre peu de profondeur. Tout compte fait, une bière qui n’a pas bien voyagée.
