3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Golden and filtered. Small white head. Nose : fresh aromas of soapy yeast, lemon zest and pepper. Sip : sweet malty start, followed by flower like notes and lemon freshness. Aftertaste is mellow and delicate. It leaves sweet and lightly bitter taste. Overall it’s a nice one for a pils.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden, retains a small head. Malty aroma with notes of cardboard and very faint hoppy undertones. The taste begins with some more malty sweetness, but the middle of the taste is watery, as is the finish. The aftertaste, however, is fairly pleasant - warm, malty with some hops. A decent pilsner, albeit boring.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours golden with a small rapidly fading head.
Nose shows bready and biscuity malt, faint grassy hops along with oats and grain, like wholemeal bread.
Very similar flavours but corn and cooked vegetable notes invade. Pretty sweet, hardly any balancing bitterness whatsoever.
Nice high carbonation suits the beer well. Very watery body though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent. Not a EPL like I was bracing for. It is a maltier one with a hint of noble hops.

Poured clear yellow with a small lacing white head. Classic pilsner appearance...Malt, sourish yeast and straw, herbal hop in the aroma. Classic again. Medium bodied, malt based beer with a clean taste of the style. Sourish yeast and some herbal-floral hops. Correct pilsner one.

3/11/2010 - 25cl bottle @ home
Pours a clear bright yellow beer, nice carbon in glass. Creamy adhesive white head. Aroma is fruity, sweet, somewhat bready (probably due to aging, only one month away from BB date). MF ok carbon, watery texture, medium body. Taste is a little malty, somewhat hoppy. Not very much. Aftertaste holds just a little bit of hops, some citrus. Is gone pretty fast. Not a bad pilsener, not a good one either.
