3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy golden beer, frothy head. Boldly hoppy nose has grassy and almost minty notes, brady malts and some fresh yeastiness. Flavor starts with biting bitterness, matiness is light but pleasantly bready. A touch of earhiness in the finish with malty notes and lingering bitterness. Quite well balanced. A bit thin maybe. Nice pils, indeed.

Bottle. Cloudy amber color, lasting white head. Dry, slightly earthy aroma. Bitter flavor with some crispy maltiness in the dry finish.Medium-light body, medium carbonation. For a hoppy pilsener I still prefer Urquell, but not bad.

Bottled (thanks laiti!). Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is floral, grassy and a bit earthy with bready malts. Flavour is rather big bitter hops (European style!) with some sweet malts, grains and quite bready notes. A beautifully balanced beer with a big hoppy bite.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-conditioned 33cl at Villi Wäinö in Helsinki.
best by July 2013. Unfiltered, lightly hazy to cloudy semi dark gold with a white head. Phenolic and floral lemons and peppercorn aroma shifting to more lemon pith, calcium, spring water,
Effervescent, bitter, dry body, spicy / peppery German hop flavor. Expressive carbonation and yeast helping this well-hopped German-style pilsner blossom.
