Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of straw and a bit of yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of hay, malt, sulphur, and a bit of citrus, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours bright, sunny golden body with distinctive non-filtered, cloudy texture, head is initially medium, slightly off-white, slowly decreasing to small, leaving nice lacing being dense and frothy in texture.
Aroma: Very purely focussed on the proper to style (Pilsener) features, especially kind of bitter - sourish, slightly dusty, cardboard, definitely chalky accents, strong stress on hoppyness in the aroma, very dry citrusy touches reminding grapefruit seeds, not revealing much more.
Flavour: Tastes definitely like a Classic German Pilsener, very high IBU bitterness of hops, hops is clearly perceptable on palate with its sharp hoppyness, definitely the beer needs the change of style to Classic German Pilsener as the German origin hops in this beer are very easily distinguishable here, apart from this very grainy, chalky, cardboardy but still with clean and long finish. Nice yeasty background due to being unfiltered.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is dry, carbonation on palate is rather mild, finish feel is dry, clean, grainy, dusty and very pleasantly bitter, really nice and pleasnat beer.

Cloudy golden body. Thick and frothy head that stays. Smell is basic malt, grass, and big on hops. Taste is citric and malt on the front and a good hop balance after swallowed. Good lacing. Pretty refreshing beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 50cl bottle poured into a mug. Cloudy straw color with ample frothy white head. Smells hoppy with some fruity notes. Taste is mostly hops with a hint of sourness. Had an oily mouth feel that I didn’t care for. Finish leaves my mouth feeling dry. Not horrible but definitely not a finer example of a pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from 500-ml swing top bottle supplied by joebrew. Pours a semi-hazy golden pale colored brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, some yeast, some flowery hops, and a touch of butter. Taste is light to medium bodied, very light carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, pils yeast, a hint of pear and a touch of flowery hops. Finish is a tad gritty with a golden grain and yeast aftertaste.
