2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet, fruity (pear, lemon) and grainy aroma with some floral hops apparent. Opaque, hazy, deep yellow with pillowy, white, large-bubbled head that recedes slowly with some nice lacing. Lemon-citrus and pear flavours dominate the sweet flavour with some graininess and a crisp finishing bitterness. Light body with strong carbonation. Odd for style but refreshing although flavour degrades severely as it warms. Why does it seem like every beer I have from this brewery seems to taste like a wheat beer?

Pours light golden with a small white head. Kind of boring, and bland. Basic pilsener taste. Very drinkable though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy gold with moderate white head, fruity malty aroma and flavor with subtle spice balanced by hops that seem light for a PIls but with a long hop finish. Smooth palate, a pleasant-enough easy-drinking Pilsner.

Nice full bready and carrot aroma. Notes of oranges in the background. Thin white head. This tops the deep gold body. The taste is malty and full for the style. Some notes of ginger and wheat bread. Also some hints of celery in the aftertaste. Decent, but nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazey yellowish hue, good head formation. Clean malt aroma, slight grain. Well spiced palate, dryish with cloves, fairly bitter and astringent in the finish. Finish spoils things a little.

Cloudy gold with an ample white head. Aroma was malt, yeast, some hops, lemon zest. Good carbonation but thin and watrey body. The flavor was subtly sweet and malty. A forgetable beer.

The hops have a very strong presence in this beer. Like chewing dried fresh hops. This beers taste is very "clean", reminiscent of Nordic pilsners, that taste like they were made from glaciers. The carbonation is strong, and lasts through the whole drinking of the glass. It’s overall flavor is unique in this class of beer, and it is a bit stronger than the average pilsner. An interesting one to sample, that needs multipple samplings to really get a hold of it’s complexity.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow. Classic German Pilsner aroma, with pils malt, light fruits, clove, honey, herbal, spicy and grassy hops. A very pleasant tasting Pils, especially up front and on the mid-palate. Grainy, fruity malty texture. Notes of clove, light fruits, bananas, pears and honey. The hops are subtle, which is why I liked it, grassy and herbal. The onlu complaint is the poor finish. Nontheless, this is an impressive Pilsner.

Fruity, hoppy, grassy aroma. Same goes on in the taste. This has the typical fruity Pinkus taste and it ´s starting to bore me. Nevertheless, this is a fine Pilsner of the sweet, fruity variety.
