COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lager’s flavour, purity and condition.

Golden yellow with a little creamy head. Some fruitiness in the aroma. Very ’clean’ taste but rather watery. Slightly dry but not too much hoppyness.

Pinball (11920) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2014
clear slightly pale yellow, big white head. nice pils aroma, very typically erope style lager. flavor is very slightly flowery, otherwise just a mild but distinct malty bitterness and euro hoppy bitter balance. good lager. just enough subtle notes to keep me interested, yet, very clean and to the point.

Dogbrick (11327) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle from Winking Lizard. This beer pours a clear pale orange-gold color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. The aroma is mildly hoppy with a bit of malt. Light-bodied with a light hops and malt flavor with touches of grass and fruit. The finish is lightly hopped and short. Overall this beer is rather subpar.
