Ernest (7343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle at Villi Waino. Head is mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, grass), with notes of pineapple, papaya, gum, pepper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A tropical fruit explosion, but with plenty of malt to back it up. Tastes stronger than it is, but man what a flavor bomb. Really lovely.

thellgren (824) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2013
0.33 l bottle from K-Citymarket, Lohja. Very lively head. Great taste with lots of hops and other aromas. All the complexity of non filtered bottle conditioned beer.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
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.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 3, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2016 330ml bottle (Villi Waino, Helsinki) (7:4:6:4:15=3.6)
Non-clear pale orange, huge, rocky, even, tight persistent head. Soft sweetish aroma, some flower, some blossom, quite perfumey. Like a floral perfumed soap, but without the soap. Dry bitter hops come over later, spicy and almost peppery Great use of noble hops in the aroma whilst not being "big". Fruity retronasals, I swear I get pineapple without the sugar and grapefruit. Quite a simple taste. Fuck that let’s talk about the finish - wow - what a finish! Hops coat every millimeter of my mouth, and give it a lovely tingly workout. My salivary glands are like hollywood fire hydrants during a car chase! Love that tingle. The attenuation is superb, so dry. Crisp, and attention-grabbing - you know you’re drinking a good beer when you’re drinking this. Back to tha taste, yes, behing the amazing hops, there’s a nice caramelly malt sweetness. Back to the aroma, I even get a bit of ginger later. The whole thing comes together brilliantly, even if no particular component (by RB breakdown) is wowing. However, as it warms, the aroma comes alive a bit more. One of the best pilsners I have ever had.
Rerate: 330ml bottle - thanks Eija! (6:4:6:4-:13=3.3-)
Sweetish malty aroma, slight herbal leaf-vegetal aspects, not promising the attenuation from the first one. Bit soapy taste, less so later. Has none of the hops smack I really liked. Pleasantly bitter, but nothing like the prior bite. Still decent, but where’s the magic gone?

TET (2672) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
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.

mjs (6514) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2013
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu, 20130328) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized, long lasting and white. Aroma had grass, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, herbalness, grain, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was grassy and bitter. A good clean pils. Especially I liked the aftertaste the bitterness of which washed away the other flavours. The beer improved when I poured in the sediment from the bottle.
