2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is herbal hops, malty caramel malt (yeah that’s right), light cardboard due to not really fresh anymore. Flavour is fresh weizen like malt at first, then some metallic cardborad, then light herbal hops, then more metal. Probably very nice when fresh.

Bottle at home, slightly over its best before date. Almost clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is grassy, citrus, floral and crispy grains. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly grassy, crispy hops, nice and subtle. Smooth texture. Very nice pilsener. Should try it fresh once.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Pale malty aroma, a touch of hay, decent floral hop note. Taste is pale malty with very subtle sweetness, mild floral hoppy overtones. No blowoff at first sight, you have to invest a little advertence to notice the subtle strengths of this well balanced Pilsener.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, lightly malty – grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light floral fruitiness and light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and light floral fruitiness - honey, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light floral fruitiness and light hoppyness. Pils with floral fruitiness and caramel - too sweet pils for me.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, mild floral notes and honey. Flavour of grassy and herbal hoppiness, green tea, honey, grains and mild caramel sweetness. Light bodied, smooth mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Refreshing and drinkability is just about right. More please.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little murky for its style, it shows off a very pronounced hop aroma with citric and floreal slight notes. Very bitter and masculine it isn’t however cloying but rather drinkable.
A very good beer but I still prefer the Tipopils by Birrificio Italiano which is more complex and articulated (and dry-hopped).
