Reviewed 12/25/2012. 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a lighter straw color with fantastic clarity. The head is a one finger white color with okay retention. Basically, it’s everything you’d expect a decent pilsner to look like. S: I was really wary when I first popped open the weird pulltab and whiffed a MASSIVE amount of skunk, but in the glass it’s calmed down well. Lots of zesty noble hops with no real malt aroma. Weak in general, but not bad. T: There’s almost a green pepper flavor that really catches me off guard - yeah, it definitely tastes like bell pepper. Not really a good thing. There’s a bit of grass and sweet malts on the finish, but that off flavor really throws everything off guard. M: Well carbonated and nicely light - there’s no mouthfeel problems keeping it from going down easy, just the flavors. O: This...doesn’t work. The pepper character kills what could have been a good pilsner. At the very least, it would pair decently with Mexican food.

En décapsulant le rigolo capuchon, le puissantes effluves de mouffette m’ont pris par «surprise». Dès lors, je croyais que le sort était conjuré. Mais dès la première gorgée, j’ai été de nouveau saisi. Wow! J’ai rarement vu la flaveur «skunky» s’amalgamer aussi bien à la bière. De jolis houblons qui s’enlacent avec la bête noire et blanche pour nous mener vers une finale croustillante et légèrement sucrée. Je n’arrive pas à comprendre pourquoi, mais j’ai adoré. Et j’en aurais bu au moins deux autres tellement ça descendait bien.

MarkoNm (1743) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 21, 2015
Pours a clear yellow golden color, topped with a fairly big white frothy head, slowly receeding. Pleasant and fresh grassy hop aroma, some lemony notes hidden and sone grains. Taste is slightly sweet upfront, nicely bitter in the finish. Mostly grassy and grainy. Light body, crisp. Easily drinkable. Nice.
