Golden yellow beer with smallish head. Aroma has butter, barley malts and grassy, citrus hops. Taste is grassy, bitter citrus and some malts to back the hops. A fresh and tasty pils for summer. Crispy carbonation and medium body. A brilliant pilsener.

Quite a nice body, with a golden hazy color. Not much of aroma, but the taste is really good. The finish comes quickly. Nice! Draft at SOPP 2014.

Hana @ Leskinen. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, niukka mutta pysyvä vaahto on tiivis ja mattomainen jättäen vahvaa pitsiä. Hajusta tuntuu kuin jenkkihumalat olisi sotkettu pilsiin: trooppista hedelmää, sitrusta, puuta ja viljaisuutta löytyy melko tasaisesti. Maussa jenkkivivahde jää hienosti taka-alalle. Hyvin viljaisen maltainen ja ruohoisen humalainen ensivaikutelma sitruksen, puumaisuuden sekä olkisuuden tukemana. Suutuntuma on todella katkeroinen, humalointi puree kyllä hyvin. Tuntuma on myös kuiva, raikas ja napakka. Hieno, todella hieno pils, joka on samalla kertaa raikas, katkera, kuiva, virkistävä ja monipuolinen. Mestariteos ja tyylinsä ehdotonta parhaimmistoa.

Draught @ Olutravintola Kukko. Golden beer, white head has small bubbles. Aroma is grassy hoppy, bready malty and citrus fruity. Flavour is very bitter with long aftertaste where bitterness stings your tongue. Bready malts, grassy hops, citrus. I like this very much and it’s a pity when this rotating tap changes to another beer.

Draught @ Pikkulintu

Pours clear orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of grassy hops, bready maltiness, some hints of butter and citrus. Taste is smooth, extremely hoppy and bitter with hints of grass, butter and sweetness. Finish is hoppy, grassy and lingering bitter with some sweet buttery notes and bready maltiness. Tasty stuff, at least for hopheads like myself. Quite extreme Czech pils. Nom.
