3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes as Randers Pilsner. It’s hazy golden with a creamy, white and lasting head. The aroma has notes of citrus, fruit and malt. The flavor has a light sweetness and it’s very fruity with notes of malt, citrus (mostly grapefruit) and the finish is dry, bitter and refreshing. A well made pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle, BB 07/07/10. Slightly hazy lemonade yellow, firm pale head leaving tight lace. Nose has pale husky maltiness, little soft yeastiness, hay and mild exotic citric fruits and kiwi. Flavor has more yeast, cutting down the best hopping, but there’s still clear grapefruit. Stodgy finish with biting grassy and zesty bitterness. Soft and full palate for the ABV. Now there’s too much yeast, but I guess this could be nice and crisp on tap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at EsBF09. Almost clear golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off with a mild fruitiness, probably from the hops. Then comes a distinct bitterness, rough but clean. The finish is bitter as well, and in the aftertaste, there is a faint floral hoppiness.
