3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle at the brewery. Pours a crystal clear, straw yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened pils malts with some fruits, a light grass, and maybe a touch of diacetyl. Flavor is better. A nice grassy bitterness balanced throughout with a lightly sweetened pils maltiness. A few fruity notes towards the end before this finishes clean and dry with a moderate bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, smooth body and a crisp, moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid pils. A slight DMS note on the nose, but the flavor was really solid. Bitter, but balanced with a nice, light malt sweetness. Good one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
