DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 12, 2008
22-Apr-08 (500-ml bottle: Free sample bottle for stewarding the 2008 World Beer Cup in San Diego, CA) Grainy malt aroma pairs with spicy Noble hops, but it’s also a little cheesy, though this goes away in time. Malty, somewhat biscuity, minimally sweet, balanced by crisp, spicy, moderately bitter hops. Light-bodied, clean and crisp on the palate Pale golden in color and perfectly clear in appearance. Carbonation bubbles continue to rise long after the beer is poured, and that helps to keep the fluffy, white head at a thin, but complete layer. Ringed and doily-like patches of lace remain on the glass.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - JUL 6, 2008
Very bright straw under a foamy lacing&lasting white head. Hints of grassiness, little or none maltiness. Very dry palate, quite bitter end, short aftertaste. Better than commercial lagers but way far from better examples of the style.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2007
On Tap, Monks Café Stockholm Clearest pale golden pour with active effervescence that conjures a fair white head leaving solid lacing around. A bit lacking in terms of hop brightness, rather mineral for the style as well, which disturbs the bitterness furthermore. otherwise, rather generic grassiness hides hop pretty much any trace of the deficient malts. Very dry palate ultimately, but lacking the freshness that could lead it anywhere close to glory.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2007
(Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Golden yellow colour with huge white head. Malty, grassy nose with toffee notes. Malty, grassy taste with notes of citrus and pineapple. Initial malt sweetness leading to a drier, nice grassy bitterness in the finish. Hops leaning slightly in the Czech direction. Classic pils, solid but unadventurous.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm Clear golden, airy head. Distinct spicy grassy hop aroma. Dry, fairly crisp and light bodied. Interesitng mustardy spicyness which is unusual for a German pils. Very dry and slim. Lingering bitter finish with a touch of metal.

Quinten (1039) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2006
Golden color, short lasting foamy head, crispy and grainy, very little hopbitter and skunk, but a nice one.

Dorqui (2083) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 1, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Draught at Garda Restaurant (Desenzano DG).
Creamy and compact head, good persistence. Golden yellow color, much limpid and with an optimal fizz. Fresh notes of cereals and grain with fresh grassy and straw final. Medium prickly taste, with good bitter and rumors of cereals and malt. Sufficient.
