2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle @Il Cantuccio pub, Legro di Orta, Italy. Pours a hay-yellow coloured, crystal clear liquid, with a massive fluffy white head. Problems with the yeast, since I was expecting some nice grassy/floral hops aroma, and I found that the only smell coming out was sulphur, leaving an almost unperceivable trace of the hops. Taste was ok, dry and bitter with a touch of honey/bread from the malt, correctly carbonated, but having the nose in the glass made drinking this a most unpleasant experience,

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Zesty citrus, herbal lengths and bread crumbs whirl about in this fluffy, unfiltered Pilsener.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A foam cumulus leaves patches all around the pint glass, decorating the cloudy straw blond.
-Corn-like angles are imagined here and there.
-Herbal hop bitterness balances out the finish.
-Mouthfeel is pleasantly dry and bubbles are plump.
-Trou du Diable’s lagers are very much in the same mold.
-Drinkability is really high, as expected.
-I am impressed by the condition of this beer having gone through Quebec’s import system (private import, but still through the SAQ monopoly) with nary a scratch. Its ’best by’ date, in November, may point to the brewer’s high confidence in his product as well....
