jcos (1778) - Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 8th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with some bubbles and faint white head.
Aroma: Aroma of bready malt.
Taste: Light bitterness, some bready malt but not overbearing.
Palate:Light body, faint fizz.

Summary: Taste really passed my expectation of the nose. Often times pilsners have a really poor syrupy stale malty taste. This does not, which I give it credit for. However, it’s still just missing something from being good.

Tognetta (657) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 17, 2016
Amarelo bastante claro e translúcido, espuma branca de média formação e persistência. Aroma de lúpulo herbal, grama recém cortada, bastante discreto. Paladar inicia com leve herbal e fica um pouco mais amargo como agrião. Corpo e carbonatação leves. Final de breve duração, sem muita variação. Fraca mas bebivel.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Bright straw color with strong activity. Thick white 2 finger head lasting around 8 minutes with some good legs. Faint aromas and flavors of grains, citrus, floral and herbal spices. Balanced sweet and sharp lemony taste with minimal hops and a metallic feel. Almost no smell. Medium slick body with moderate carbonation. Faint and short finish ending with minimal floral and herbal feel. Overall poorly crafted having bland watery flavors and no personality. Though refreshing and accessible, it should have more hops.

Clear, pale, minimal white top head, light sweetness, light body, fizzy. Pretty much nothing-special-Pilsener. Some light malt aromas, not much hops.
