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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A slightly cloudy, golden beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is fresh and succesfully, aromatic, some fruits, light malts, and fresh grass. Taste is malty and grassy, slightly aromatic, almost medium bitterness. The aftertaste is surprisingly long, dry, grassy and slightly herbal; smooth bitterness. Very tastefull Pils, nothing special, but the great balance with the nice aromatic nuancees.
